    Much like the 'Famous Groundhog' A little Winter sun brought me out of my 'hole'. What I have learned over the years is that Superbowl Sunday is a great time to have the great outdoors to yourself if you time it right. With an 11:30 departure, on one of the best days (Sunny) of our Winter, it seemed that every potential Superbowl viewer had the same idea. A little bit of the offroad adventure before the Big Game brought everyone and their brother up into the hills.



    There were a number of reasons for the ride. I wanted to try out the new HyperPro spring I had installed on the Banshee body. As well, I would like to see if I could become more proficient with my camera and the 'new' mic that I always seem to forget to turn on.



    It was a beautiful afternoon, lots of sun and temperatures in the low to mid 60's. I took an hour of 'Edge of your seat' video so I will try to break it down into 5 to 8 minute segments and post on YouTube (long process). For some reason, the first segment did not transfer over in HD, but is still reasonably clear. Enjoy, Gerry

    I enjoyed the video...but it left me wanted to see an in-depth breakdown of all of the gadgets you have on your T Dub. Any possibility of seeing those gadgets you have attached to your T Dub?

    Ya, like where's the little knob that you twist and all of your crime fighting equipment pops out. Where do you keep your sonar radar perimeter defense system?

    Hey Gizmow,



    Thanks for the video.



    Finally, a video of someone who rides like I do. Nice and slow, dodging rocks and using the whole road. Looks like it was a good ride to me.

    Man, your video makes me hate Chicago that much more. No good places to ride around here that I'm aware of. Just the typical concrete jungle. I can't wait to bring my bike to West Virginia and do some riding there.

    I love that bridge. Another cool video mrgizmow. I like it and the area you ride in.

    The Cheese Heads won! I know this why? Cause I had to work unlike lucky mrgizmow.




    I already have the riding bug like crazy, why, why, mrgizmow did you have to post this...when I can't go anywhere but the mailbox!



    You know I'm just kidding. Thanks for sharing and can't wait for another (similar to mrbigwheel), mrgizmow production.



    Watching the video's sure gets us in the mood to ride!



    P.S. I use to be a hugh football fan, and I am still a hugh NASCAR fan, but guess what? I record them, go riding (when I can), and watch them later. Riding the TW and spending time with the family is more fun than I remember 25 years ago!
