Good job on the video. You captured the Zen of the powered 2 wheeler. Thanks.

The Oregon side looked like it was about 3-5 years old, so it would have been really nice and new when you rode it.

I think they must have repaved the WA part just this summer because it was perfect racetrack quality as you can see in the pics. The paint was so fresh it hasn't even been marked up yet. I lucked out and had the whole thing to myself too. Scraped the pegs a few times....

I leave the Contour here when touring as I can easily flick it on and off with my left hand while riding.
I just received a PM asking for these photos (that I promised to upload 6 months ago, LOL). The mount is still working very nicely. There's a nut I use on the end of the tripod screw to protect the threads when I don't have the camera on.
