My Humble Mountain Pass Video


Recommended Posts




Took it some time back while still recovering from the flu, just got the chance to edit it and upload to youtube.

Its super shakey as i taped and necklaced my handphone "rig" to my chest (jacket) and the roads here... lots of uneven surfaces



some notes:


1:19 >uphill climb starts with a 90 degree slight banked left and left hairpin followed by right hairpin

1:52-1:55 >hard left to right transition (fast flick , i think i did a grade 7 steering rate (10 being world champ) there )

4:21 : 4:43 >multiple slow speed hairpin turns

4:21 - 4:49 > hard uphill left to right transition

5:55 - 6:00 >hard left

6:03-6.06 > hard left, mid turn corrections(incoming car, too near the double yellow line)

8:08 >begin of mountainpass descend

8:26 > multiple medoum speed hairpin turns

9:21 -9:28 banked medium to hi speed hairpin

9:53 -10:10 multiple left/right flick turns

11:13> 11:16 hi speed unbanked decending left turn




bike:
stock engine 9HP at crankshaft , modded CVT running on stock exhaust, front disc (stock caliper + GG sintered pads) rear drum (aftermarket pads) setup, revalved front damper rods with 20W oil + 40 USD after market rear shock X2


average speed : 15KM in 13 mins = 69 km/h , no hanging off (just a guesstimate )


road quality/lane: coarse with patches of new "humped" tarmac and manhole covers in the middle of the road /corners , 2 to 1 lane and 1 to 2 lane mixture with cars parked sometimes on one lane roads


experience: 12000 KM of CSS styled riding(self taught , book+dvd) ~ :D

track experience : none

any comments on how to take a better video (fixing the rig/gear/tips) and constructive comments on cornering/how i can improve are most welcome! :)

ktk what kind of camera are you using?

As for mounts I tried the mounting stuff that I bought for my GoPro but was not very happy. It seemed that it was more for bicycles rather than motorcycles.

I have since switched over to Ram mounts. http://www.rammount.com/Products/MotorcycleMounts/tabid/128/Default.aspx#/ So far so good with them.
