Last weekend, a few buddies of mine rode to Ojai for breakfast. It was an absolutely beautiful day and we were comprised of a few bikes. 2 Honda Rebel 500s, a Star Bolt and a Ducati Panigale 959. Needless to say, my buddy in the Duc wasn't all too comfortable in the long ride to Ojai but he endured and had a great time. The rebel handled the long journey quite well. It was very comfortable even in the strong headwind we encountered on the way. It was really nice to be able to get it to the Ojai twisties and managed only to scrape the pegs once or twice. Power was more than adequate for the quick blasts on some of the famous backroads of pine mountain. I was pretty much on the gas up and over pine mtn and still managed a decent 72 mpg overall. Anyway, here's the video of the trip. Excuse the "newbiness" of the video as I'm still getting familiar with Final Cut Pro. Anyway, cheers!

awesome video. Can't wait until my bike is good and broken in, been planning a good 4 day road trip. mind ya, most of the driving is on a straight highway with a speed limit of 110kms/hr. curious to see how my rebel 300 can handle the long drive, its about a 6.5 hr drive to destination and 6.5 hours back on the 4th day. Or maybe its more to see how I WILL handle the long a** drive, hahaha.

Looked like a nice ride :grin2:

Little curiose about your gopro's, don't see too many using the session when vlog'ing on a bike.
I use one, mainly due to it's size, don't want a big bulky thing sitting on my helment.
Do you have any tips or tricks in regards of it's battery life? Or do you just kill it now and then to save it?

yeah, I use a hero 5 session on the helmet... i just set it to full HD at 60 fps the whole time and just recharge the thing when we stop for food or gas with a portable charger/battery pack... or I swap it out with another session (hero4) that I have.... I use the handle bar mounted one for selfie videos and then just turn it around to get some forward facing footage. I don't do the audio part since it's a little cumbersome to do and if need be, I just do a voice over. here's one I did when we did a similar ride on my versys x300 a couple of months back... I had a session pointing backwards as well.... and did all the editing on my iPhone with the gopro app, Splice... Cheers!
