Carpathian backroads motorcycle ride

These are the local back roads where I live in Eastern Slovakia. This is an improved video from the last one as this time I’ve attached the Dazzne P2 to my helmet rather than on a chest rig. I’m still working out angles and stuff. That blue car really annoyed me when it appeared –Continue reading “Carpathian backroads motorcycle ride”

Carpathian Evening Motorcycle Ride

There are signsContinue reading “Magura national park, Poland”

Motorcycle ride and repair

Today was the first chance I’ve had in over a month to do some repairs to my Aprilia Pegaso 650, Feisty. It had taken me months to find a replacement rubber intake manifold for my carb and I’d been preparing for visitors, plus the weather has been awful. Despite the freezing temperatures and it takingContinue reading “Motorcycle ride and repair”
