More fire road fun on my 19 Wee

Had a great time today. Almost dropped it at speed but made it. I love this bike so much. Why did they put the equivalent of sportbike tires on it? Regardless sketchy tired or not I had a heck of a time. https://youtu.be/pMpsiBMtlQM

Much bigger balls than mine. Maybe match your speeds in my truck, certainly not on my DL650

The believe the OP's speedo is in KM's. He was in 2nd gear the entire time and hit a max of 73 KPH or 45 MPH.

To the OP,

1. Maybe rethink where you mount the camera. All you can see is your dash front and center.
2. If the stock tires are so bad why not change them out for something more confidence inspiring?

First time out with this cheapy GoPro, It was chest mounted,. Next time i will use a helmet mount.
I am ordering some more aggressive tires today.

Not a 'fire road,' just a forest, graded and maintained road.

Glad you had fun, the DL650 is fantastic.
