    Nice video! I don't see anything wrong with your ride. I do that often and ride like that here in our mountains. But I do tend to keep my RPM's lower than you. I try to keep it under 7k. I know that might not give me access to the upper power bands, but I still stay high enough to keep the spyder from lugging.
    I was a little worried when I saw in the title about rocks, dirt, and gravel. I do try to stay away from riding too aggressive in those situations, but that road wasn't too bad. Ride on bro!

    I loved watching the video. We were on similar yesterday. Our "comfort" level is way less than what you displayed. It was fun for us to watch you handle the ride like a pro. I like to watch going fast...when someone else is doing it.

    Yep. maybe i did too much of a title to that
    but in real it is full of that kind of concrete gravel road.. I love especially these type of roads..
    Now leaving to Serbia in short period of time, so hopefully it will be similar or more crazy fun.

    I have to watch on those high revs. especially after the ECU upgrade. With L. pipe it has tendency to overheat if you hit the "no limit" limiter if you know what I mean.

    have a great day,
    M.

    its all about what makes YOU happy. If it is going little bit or more slower, that it is all fine!!
    I like to hit it this way, still there is like 20-30% easy to go faster, but I dont want to harm anyone neither harm me... so, this is enough i think

    have an awesome day

    I for sure, do not consider you as an unsafe rider.
