Back in mid-September 2014 I went looking for dry roads. It was the first and only time during the season where I went riding just for the sake of riding. Preferably with decent pace. I wanted to record at least one or two RAW clips showing a bit of commitment. I was surprised to see that I had to ride much further than I thought until I could find relatively dry roads.
It surprised me even more how much of a difference grip-wise a few degrees Celsius can make. I rode for a good three hours before I started recording anything because I was lacking practice big time. Before this day I hadn't been on the bike for months. Except for a handful of short commutes.
So these autumnal conditions in combination with my lack of practice sure turned out to be quite a delicate combo. I remember I almost had to be careful on the throttle. But since it's just a CB500 I tried to floor it anyway ;)
