Looks like you have it running good ,when I said watch out for the potholes l had no clue, our city has it's share of bad streets and a bunch that are still dirt and rocky with mud pits ,that safety coarse is about a 100 times bigger then the one out here,or town doesn't even have one you have to go to the next town Ride safe
I've gone over that spot a few times and each time i just about wipe out because the track sticks so far out of the ground. It would be bad if it was 90 degrees to the road but it's not so sometimes it washes out the front end and It catches me off guard a little lol
Great vid Brandon, thanks for sharing you town with us, very quaint.
Our roads are pretty good in comparison to what you've shown us, but we most definitely don't have the weather that you guys experience. We get absolutely no snow so no need to salt, chains or anything like that. We're even (un)lucky to get a heavy frost. Generally when we hit the range at say 9am, dead of Winter, it is short sleeves, lol, we are around the 31deg South parallel & 600 - 700ft asl. Has snowed on the surrounding hills once since we've been here (37.5 years) and up in the high stuff, but we're spoilt, lol.
Our town is on a main interstate highway and is kept in pretty good condition and our local roads, as I said are pretty good, but our local council decided they were too good and installed speed humps all over the place, the mongrels, lol. I'll have to mount my crash cam and do a local tour....
I grew up similar to you, we learned to ride bikes for mustering, drive tractors & trucks - chase vehicles during harvest etc on the farm, weren't allowed to drive cars, but everything was open to us, lol.
Thanks for posting & cheers ol' mate
Surprisingly enough we have a few places in our town that also has speed bumps installed. The roads are messed up enough without adding to it. Coincidentally the day after I shot this video I saw a car stranded on the side of the road. Both right side tires were blown out from the driver hitting a pot hole. Big pucker factor when on a motorcycle. You have to stay alert to stay alive. It sounds like our childhoods were similar. If it had wheels we drove it...license being optional lol Cheers brother!
Those roads do look bad. There are some great riding roads in the US, over here in France we also have miles of well surfaced and maintained roads. Some roads in industrial areas and out in the sticks can be rough, now is about the time they dress my local back roads with liquid bitumen and gravel chips, so you have to watch that, but I live on a twisty road and am close to some really great roads.
I've ridden all over Europe, and France is the tops for me. Nice little tour you did there, you see much more on the bike than when sitting in the box.
@Matthew Hall Some of the roads in Italy were really bad, and surprisingly , some roads in Germany, so you never know, EU funding has helped the Eastern countries vastly improve their roads I'm told. I live in probably the least populated department in France but luckily our roads are in fair condition despite the winters.
I was lucky to ride Highway one on a Laverda and up into the Redwoods to the General Sherman tree, great riding, the thing I noticed about those roads, was how much grip the surface had compared to the roads back in the UK. Ride safe wherever you ride.
Couple of things. Maine gets much worse winter weather than France, some of the most brutal in our country. Also the average population density of the west EU is much higher than that of most of the US states. So the number of taxpayers per length of road is higher thus it's more cost effective to pay for it. If you go to a somewhat empty place like Iceland or less rich EU country in the east then those roads are way worse than America. There's stuff in Iceland that's so bad driving it in the winter is illegal unless you're part of an SAR team rescuing somebody. Don't assume everywhere in the US is the same as everywhere else. It's several thousand kilometers long and wide. About 2/3 of the land area of the entire EU in one country.
Thanks buddy. It seems that everywhere the roads are pretty much better than they are here lol. They say don't get complacent when riding a motorcycle...thats not an option here. You get complacent here and your going down lol. Someone was mentioning recently that somewhere (UK maybe)? that panels are embedded in the roadway and the cars passing over them generate electricity. Thats an awesome idea but probably would not work in my area. They would have to be pretty heavy duty to endure the seasonal abuse our roads take. As you mentioned, I love the freedom and openness of being on a motorcycle. Cheers brother!
