Great first trip (vid)

so I took my first trip over 150 miles this week. I went from rosemount mn (I35) to Duluth mn, then from there to the Canadian border (hwy 61) then I came back down hwy 61 to hwy 1 to ely mn where I spent the night. I then came down hwy 1 a bit and hooked up with hwy 2 and that took me to two harbors mn and from there back through Duluth mn and back home to rosemount mn....all totaled 754.5 miles at 57.5 mph average with 45.2 mpg. the video is of hwy 1 to ely only and wow what a road. its 60 plus miles to ely so it was a lot of fun...speed limit was 50 and the corners were almost all 35 and 45 mph but I went through it at 65 to 75 with no problems. I want to ride the dragon some day with its sharper corners but I have to say I really like the long sweeping turns. the video has only 1 out take in it other wise this was the last 20 minutes of the road. unfortunately the sound is bad. I don't like the wind of the gorpro only so I put a mic on it and stuck it in my jacket wich you can still hear the bike without the wind but it recorded in mono and not stereo...I have to see about fixing that...so listen to the bike or turn your own music on http://youtu.be/L9GzO_N8UHA the pic is of lake superior

The video is private so we are unable to view it, you can change that using the Video Manager tab on Youtube.

I've done that run a few times and it never gets old!
Did you stop by Aerostich for some goodies?
