Ride Video 919 Meets The Tourist

So a fellow from the UK who had watched some of my videos was coming to Australia. He asked me if we could go for a ride when he came over. I mapped out a route (See here) and away we went.

The footage is shot between E and B on the map. If you zoom in you'll see the state boarder line. We had just crossed over to the B side of the boarder and swapped leads so I could get him on film.

Not high paced or anything. But it does show the different lines he takes to me, through the same corners (most noticeable at the twisties from 7:30). As was remarked to me from another fellow I filmed "It's a great learning tool to see what you are doing through corners"

Anyway...

Great video. Amazing what you don't know about other countries by paying attnetion only to the media. I could say the same about Texas, where we have awesome backroads that lay waste to the concept that this state is flat and featureless. We can blame the old westerns....

Cheers!
