Example POV.1 Video: Deal's Gap ride

I've been posting about the POV.1 camera on my R1150GS Adventure, but haven't provided any examples of video shot while riding. What better ride to capture on video than the infamous Deal's Gap (US 129) on the NC/TN border (also know as the Tail of the Dragon). If you're reading this blog, you are sure to already know about its 318 turns in 11 miles. On a quiet weekday it can be a lot of fun. On a busy weekend, there are better (safer!) roads to ride.

I had the opportunity to ride it from East to West on a somewhat quiet Monday afternoon early in October. You can see from the video that there was still a bit of traffic to content with. The POV.1 was set to record 720p at 30 frames per second (the best it will do). Enjoy!
