    My first time recording a decent run. I've strapped my $20 ebay spec cam upside down to the windscreen of my Aprilia and hoped for the best. This is what I got.

    I recorded myself riding the 16km of twistys on the Putty Road sticking to the speed limit but trying to keep my speed up in the corners. Gotta stay legal now :]


    Darn youtube. The video wasn't this pixilated on my computer.

    Anyhoo sit back relax and "try" enjoy the sights and sounds of a 2 stroke Aprilia RS125 doing what it does best. Carving corners.

    P.S Although I'm taking it easy and riding at the speed limit you'll sure know when I do chop into it. You only have to listen to the anger of the mozzie pedalling the back wheel.
  2. You need to re-set the time and date stamp on your camera :LOL:

    My first riding on the Ten Mile was on a two stroke, too, dancing on the gear pedal :).
  3. Hornet. I can't reset it due to the nature of the cam setup. This particular camera is normally powered by a inbuilt 2xx something MAH LiPo battery which hasn't enough capacity to even make the full 10 mile run. I've setup a 3x AAA battery pack spliced into the cameras guts to power it instead. The trade off is that each time I unplug the camera the date gets reset.

    Normally I would use virtualdub to just blur out the date but this time around I was feeling particularly lazy :)
  4. no problems, I just have a perverse mind when it comes to that sort of detail

    I lived in Denman for 7 years and bought my first bike there, so I literally learned to ride in the Ten Mile. At first the bike was a stock 250; by the time I'd finished it was a screaming, lightened hot 350. No car ever got past me and made it stick on that piece of road, and I still ride it as often as possible.
  5. that was cool (y)

    i want a 2 stroke now, love that engine
