Scenic Route Ruined by Bad Driver

Hey fellas! Here's my latest motovlog. Took a pretty scenic route and had some fun until a bad driver nearly ruined the day. Let me know what you think.

WTF? I would have passed that minivan over the double yellow in a heartbeat. The title of your post made it sound as if you'd had a near miss or something.

If you'd like a laugh, check out "Sport Utility S*ck" by David Lindley and Wally Ingram. The album is titled "Twango Bango II."

Must agree with zippy49 , if you call that " ruined .. " try driving through Barcelona around 19H00 on Friday evening ... " I can imagine the title of your video " The route that turned my pants brown "

That was the first time I had been on that road so I was trying to take it a little bit easy. Now that I know the route, if it happens again, I'll definitely be passing. I couldn't believe how slow they were going and of course she was all over the road, too.

I'll have to check that video out. Thanks!

The title is meant to grab viewers, so it works. I've never seen what Barcelona is like on a Friday evening, but I can't imagine it's much worse than Washington DC on a Friday evening. That's where I live and traffic here is insane at that time.

Great ride and roads. As previous comments, also would have passed in a heartbeat. Keep safe.

A possible way to deal with the issue at 1 minute 50 seconds........

Less is more - You can only use 150hp .001% of the time, but you can use 150kg 100% of the time ...........


2015 390 Duke / 2001 KTM 640 Duke2 (awaiting carb rebuild) / 1998 Bandit 1200 (half dead) / 1994 DR350 (in bits)

It's a music CD. You might find it on a torrent site, as used copies are going for $35 on Amazon!

I suspect that various forum members in India are rolling with laughter...the videos I've seen from there are positively terrifying. Complete anarchy.

I don't follow too closely. And what's the point of being rude? You weren't forced to watch it.

That's genius! I might actually get that. Last time I tried to wipe bug juice off with my glove it just smeared everywhere. Wasn't the best idea.
