    I'm looking forward to it. I should have said before; "Nice Ride Video".

    Steve,

    I got a performance "warning" back in July of '05 from a CHP officer at the very spot your RT's parked. I was headed to Breckenridge at the time.

    Did you see many CHP dudes during your ride??

    Ha! Coincidently, I was on a group ride with a rider on an RT getting a ticket near the same location... I think it was back in July '05, and he was from Colorado Springs.

    thanks

    Steve, once again, thoroughly enjoyed the sights and sounds of your report. But, I have to ask, at 10,000 feet, 30 degrees, and 40mph winds, is there so much salt/sand on the road that ice isn't an issue??? The video really shows how the sun can really mask what the road surface is like. Salt residue and ice can look identical.

    Thank you for sharing the video. I want to record like that. What kind of camera equipment do you use and how is it mounted and wired? Also what editing software do you use? Thanks again.

    Colorado does not use salt on our roads. Sand, and some chemical agents to aid melting, but not salt. As long as the sun is out, ice doesn't happen too much. in the shade, or after the sun sets, well, that's a different story.

    I am confused, but that's nothing new!

    Salty old dog

    I do beleive your right!

    To my knowledge the front range never used the salt, but the high country (the roads with increasing elevation) CDOT were not past throwing a bit on the roads to keep the the touristos from sliding off on the way to spend money at the ski areas!

    Ray... For this Kenosha vid I parked a Sony Cybershot digital camera on Techmount attached to the bars. Many digital cameras now have a very fine movie mode. Have recorded many vids using helmet cams and MiniDV camcorders but increasingly like the simplicity, small size, light weight, no tape, etc. features of a digital camera. Guess with increasing age is greater interest in simplicity.

    Any editing software will do, even the freely available Microsoft Movie Maker, but for this recording used Sony Vegas.

    Same here. Rarely, if ever, have seen salt on CO roads. Will see the powdery Mag Chloride and waaaaay too much sand, but never salt.

    Steve your RT and mine are quite similar, even the black lowers. I'm interested in what equipment you used to record the video; camera, mounts, etc. I notice you had the windscreen in the full "up" position. Was this due to the weather or does your camera require that?

    Thanks man, nice ride!

    Wez... This vid was from a digital camera (sony Cybershot) movie mode test where I removed the GPS from its Techmount mount (using the empty hole near the clutch reservoir) and pointed it through the screen. Challenge I had was if I extended the mount arm up high the edge of the screen would have been right in the middle of the recording! Thus, I angled the mount towards the inside of the screen (thus lowering it), and the cam then captured a portion of the screen support bracket.

    In the brisk wind, yes, I did have the screen up some, but it wasn't up all the way.
