I have stuck this link to video in the darkened recess as I was on my Versys when I shot it. I used to ride this road every day on my way to work and we sort of bonded. There is loose gravel in a few places and the cambers are all over the place, but it is just like riding a rollercoaster.

I  have moved about 10 miles away from it now, but I am going to take the GRiSO back over there this summer. You don't really get the full aspect of the inclines with the gopro lens but at least some of the idea. Sorry about the music, i am new to vids so just whacked some random stuff on to hide the instrument buzz of the Versys!

That's a really great video. Really narrow road not much margin for error. Love the scenery, I live in Arizona and I miss all things green. Thanks for posting.

Thanks both.

It's the B4507 running from Ashbury towards Wantage along the bottom of White horse hill. Smile Smile

It's not great is it. The Go pro was just mounted on a suctionpad to the flyscreen. Plus as has been said, it's a good old bumpy UK B road and pretty narrow which adds to the hedge flying effect.

Makes you feel like you have taken something.......????

One morning at about 7am I was on the middle section of that road [ taking it steady as it was wet and muddy ] when I dropped down into one of the horseshoe bends and facing me was a Stag with the full hat rack of antlers. And he just stood there! We just looked at one another for a few seconds, before he decided that it was time to go. I honestly thought he was going to charge me. A few days later 3 deer jumped from the bank and bounded the road about 30m in front of me. I realised I was lucky it was only 3 and not more as it could have been nasty.
