GoPro video/Tail of the Dragon /Smooth is fast!

Hey Everyone!

Here are two video's from my son from the Tail of the Dragon. Although not shot riding a Versys I hope they are inspiring. Thought you might enjoy them.

A few highlights:
1. This is an example of a GoPro video shot and edited using state of the art equipment, he does this as one of his jobs.
2. Smooth is fast!
3. Crank up the audio (which is so often missing from videos!), and enjoy!


Second Video; Riding technique. Point your nose in the direction of the turn and relax, enjoy the ride!


BEST,
ANDY

Excellent Video

Thanks for posting, I edited the title as it didn't grab my attention, I felt the lack of comments may have indicated that others went by it as well, last check was 70 hits.

Nice time of day to ride. The number of riders plus blind corners sometimes concerns me on the Dragon. Unfortunately, it's the shortest and lowest altitude pass near us. We're 50 miles from DGMR, which shows up in the first video after the stretch from fugitive dam along Cheoh Lake. My wife wants to ride her new bike today. Maybe I can get her up there. I'd like to try her old Versys on the Dragon. It's being transformed into my local utility bike. Actually, if I wake her up in an hour we can miss the rush.

It's enjoyable to see the Dragon like this. I've been on it since the late 1980s. Pretty amazing.

Wizard, thanks! I was not sure what to title it, so thanks for the help. One of Aaron's jobs is a video / audio editor for a major company in Florida, in the Orlando area (guess which one!), and had fun with this little project.

BEST,
ANDY

Any idea how he cuts out the wind noise so well and leaves in the engine sound?

What you usually hear is music, some of which is not to my taste. With few exceptions, I'd much rather hear the engine, especially the airbox as the engine gets spooled up. Music to my hears.

I once had a pre-VTEC, Honda VFR 800 that had the most intoxicating airbox snarl I've ever heard. I'd love to have made a video/audio of it while cooking the corners.

Hey Wolfcamp,
I too get tired of the music with the videos. Having some GoPro videos of my own, its is by far harder to get good audio than good video. Multiple microphones and professional editing equipment does the trick here.

Wow, another video of the dragon. Yawn. The sun glaring on my screen was enough to stop watching.

This fast at the Tail...


He also needs a lot of work with his throttle when cornering.

It's the internet, but I mean well. You should both sign up for a track day.
