    Downhill Ride - Turkey

    Hey guys, I hope everyone is having a great Monday!

    I'd like to share a video of me and my two mates, recorded last week during our trip to Uludag (Great Mountain). It's the highest mountain near Istanbul.

    You can see the importance of positioning on the road at 6:32.

    Btw, I'm the one in the middle :P

    Very enjoyable thanks. It certainly highlighted the hazards associated with single lane roads and the need for patience when group riding on them.  :305: safe.

    Hi 2rule,
    Nice video mate but I kept my heart in my mouth when you were taking the right hand bends on or near the centre line- in Australia the traffic coming the other way would use you as a bonnet ornament!
    My wife and I are travelling to Europe next year with English friends and hope to ride and see as much of the continent as we can.
    Keep up the videos and be careful...

    Hi there 2rule, that's one cool video, a Sony sport cam yes ? I have the same with all the gps details and not the ridiculase price of a GoPro ! As mentioned above your right hand corner trajectory needs a bit more perfection, I have done a trajectory course with the French police bikers , I learnt so much with them, and staying out on the white line for so long was one of my biggest errors
    We are never too old to learn I'm 65 !! Love my CT and get out on her for any excuse
    Ride safe man and keep the videos coming

    thank you very much for the warning guys, i'm gonna keep them in mind and stay a little bit to the center on the right hand corners.

    and yes, it was my friend's sony action cam with all the cool features such as gps mapping and the speedometer etc. i'm thinking of buying one too, never thought of buying a gopro. as you said, it's overpriced!
