    The full ride was 25 minutes, it's played back at 600% and lasts just under 4 minutes. I travel from the Kowloon side (mainland) to the island of Hong Kong, crossing then underwater Cross Harbour Tunnel, one of the most congested roadways in the world.



    This is the common commute for me on my TW - it shows the benefit of riding a bike in HK - traffic can back up for miles so having the ability to weave to the front gets me from A-B a lot quicker. This is also the reason I went with a smaller handler bar on my build.



    Hope you like!

    I have to admit, I'm glad I don't have to comute in a congested metro area such as yourself. But if I did, a TW looks like a good choice. Couldn't quite tell by the video, but do you get to drive through stopped or stalled traffic (lane splitting)? If so, that makes the TW or other small motorcycles an even better choice.



    Thanks for sharing

    Yeah! Lane Splitting is Key here, the video ran at 600% speed, but from 1:15-2:15 i'm basically running through stopped / slow moving traffic... I'm going to grab a friends go pro and try to link two up next time to give you a good view of what i go though...



    thanks for the comment.

    like the music m8! you could jus do the same trip again - and then cut between the 2 days run ( your commute? ) or maybe if u shot it 4 days running? 1 forward facing. 1 rear facing.. one mounted low to your front fork or something. and one helmet mounted so you get some movement rather than fixed perspective.



    600% speed is cool actually!



    ps love the helmet.. what is it?





    pps - I do the same lane splitting thing on my hornet! the TW is better if it gets really tight tho.. jus for salaaming between stationary cars! motorbike is the best way to get around HK - as long as u dont mind the summer sweats!



    BTW if u see an orange TW going the other way give my missus a wave - she likes seeing other TW's on the road!

    Hey Dub,



    It's a Fly Trekker. I ordered it through an American company I found on e-bay. I had also purchased my last helmet from them - They always give me the lowest pricing around.



    Helmet is great, a few other Forum Bro's have one as well.. a little bit big and bulky, but it works for me.

    Kwizard, thanks for your feedback, why don't you tell me how you really feel.. The video was made on a whim and was the first time I hooked up the GoPro.. all for fun.. Self centered!? woah that's the last thing I expected someone to take from the video.

    I think the medium setting for the GoPro might get rid of some of that fish eye view.

    Not to worry i dont take offence so easily, I see you updated your "self centered" forum profile picture, great!... The idea was to show people the lane splitting near the tunnel.. anyways, I'll live!
