Ninja 250R GMR Video today!

That's Nooman from sportbikers.net up front "R6". Just cruising down the mountain. The road is tighter than it looks due to the gopro wide angle lens.

We were "cruising". I was following nooman and wanted get a rider in front of me. The wide angle makes the rider in front look far but it's not. Look at 11:27, nooman almost lost it.

Here's another vid by myself going up. This is the first run up (warm up) so I'm going slow here plus I have brand spanking new tires. BTW, Sport Demons are the BOMB!

Did he really make an outside pass on a right curve around that minivan with a blind left on approach? With the 2 recent head on collisions up there due to people crossing the double yellows, all I can say is 'wow' to that pass.

If you feel like you've outgrown your 250, you've probably outgrown your helmet too.

I know both riders and they are cautious. I think the wide angle lens did some injustice here.

The camera doesn't show it but at one of the couple turns before you can see way way far past that turn to see if any vehicles are coming up.

It's the front. He said it was his fault. Similar to what happened in the Big Bear ride. Luckily there was no gravel on the road. I remember someone from ocmoto go down that same turn about a month ago, in an R6 too.

Understandable, but when moving at 30+ miles per hour with a curve every few seconds, it's hard to really see if other bikes are on their way up when you're trying to concentrate on not riding off the cliff that's in front of you. Cars sure, because they're bigger and slower (usually) and catch your eye easier, but unless they're riding fully dressed bright orange cruisers, other bikes are hard to spot. It still gets a 'wow' from me.
