I was riding with a friend last sunday (24th of April). It was very cold weather but luckily we had enought clothes. We made a nice ride to Lahnajärvi and back…. it was about 190 km’s. This time I had the camera attached in my helmet so now the picture is not with the resonance.
In this first video you need to check the video from 14:15! There’s a goshawk very near to the road and it flies away when I ride to it’s place.
Eli soratiet Kirkkonummella.
I live in the city (municipality) called Kirkkonummi. Here are some possible gravel roads to ride with motorcycle (if you like that stuff!?) These are the ones with no dead-end, so you can actually continue riding without turning back. This is map part 1:
KTM 690 Enduro is 1 cylinder engine with quite nice power, easy to ride in almost everywhere! It has some vibration in the handlebar but it doesn’t bother me -So I desided to try my Sony 4k-camera in it.
But oh no… It just doesn’t work! The vibration makes the camera shake, rattle and roll (it makes the resonance depending the rpm of the engine), and in some parts it’s very disturbing watch the video! But then again in some parts of the video the picture is quite ok!
This is the first video of the routes I rode yesterday. Second video here:
It was actually already before easter when I got the offer from my Honda VFR1200X Crosstourer. After trying to sell it so long time I was quite happy with offer I got from Bikeworld. But I had to wait over 1 week for the delivery of the new KTM 690 Enduro.
This photo was taken only 10km’s after I bought it and already I’m offroad!! Ok it’s only like 20 meters away from the pavement but anyway that bike really invites you to make turns away from the road.
My way home (normally about 30km’s) turned in to 90 kilometers of gravel roads and some little bit illegal roads. I even found some nice and interesting places. Here’s the route I rode yesterday (few places I couldn’t add to the route since googlemaps doesn’t allow it).
The real offroad places (forest etc) are still snowy or at least very wet so for now I’m staying mostly on the gravel roads. But luckily there are lots of those here in my area!
