If any of you get over my way you got to ride these roads

Spent 3 days and 1300km riding around some of the most awesome scenery and roads so not a lot of photos but some vids with my gopro on my chest harness, have posted photos here before of some of the areas but not vid while im riding.

First time the Ninja been a decent distance from home and my butt was a bit sore even with the airhawk on as its not as comfortable as my versys!!!

No Video

This one is just after the homer tunnel and was labouring the engine a bit on way down for a start as was more focused on vid than riding.

Not far from home on way back and lots of bikes on road heading toward the march hare rally but some of the cruisers do go slow around the corners.

The Ninja does handle real well buddy, done 16,000km on it and it has a real smooth linear power, not a wheelie machine as you can snap throttle and front wheel pretty much stays down unless you decide to really drop gears and open her up. 138 Hp does the job but in saying that my ride buddys reckon i lose nothing on some of the tight gorge roads around here on the versys.

I think the Ninja supposed to be good for 0 to 100kph in 2.6 sec but would go under 3 sec easy.

They do ride really tight, got in the middle of a group on purpose for fun and the ones behind me dropped back as they did not want to be seen riding with a kwaka, just for fun i did not pass some of them to on big sweeping corners as they slow down so fast you make make a coffee while waiting.

On the first vid you will see a very sneaky cop parked up on the left at 4:12sec and the local guy at the next garage told me he is taking photos of people going across the centre line!

This vid is just me climbing up the lindas pass, went through here in middle of last winter and pemanent frost going on as some area got no sun and we went through at miday back then.
Top of the pass is a 6:14 and gets real tricky when they put grit on the road.
