New Ride Video Dec 30 - The Goat Track

Now here's a road I haven't been on in 15+ years. So took it nice and easy. A mix of pace riding thrown in here and there. Plus a run down part of the road which can only be described as a Goat Track. Too narrow for vehicles to pass it is goverened at each end by traffic signals. And steep - aye carumba it is steep in places, I forgot just how steep. Ear popping steep. And narrow, did I mention it was narrow? But a heck of a lot of fun.

Enjoy, I did riding it...

@secondchance The speed varied from around 40 leptons to over 80 leptons. Sometimes in 3rd gear, sometimes in 6th. So sometimes the same speed was done but the gear choice was different so the tacho was different too

If you think this was dizzying, wait until the next one. Boy, that will be dizzying. Loads of left/right/left/right/left/right. I'll be calling it "Life's Pretty Straight Without Twists"

@rockdog32 Tambo goat track, yes. Been so so long since I've been on that road. Was good to travel it again.

Thanks rmb and TheBeeDeeGee
