Cookey.. I lived in Nice for 7 months. The roads all around the Cote D'Azur, Alpes Maritimes and over to the Costa Azzurra are some of the most amazing roads to ride on. I'm sure your video was a lot more picturesque than a cold winter night in Seattle.

thanks for that and yeah I bet it is with a jockey shift... as long as i'm cool with the throttle i can change up and down without the clutch though not always as smooth as i'd like

t... Nice is a cool city, one of my favorite places along this coast and yeah the roads around here are something else. Plenty of bikes down here but not found anybody else into this scene yet... if the weather holds I'm gonna go get some more footage over the weekend. It might be more picturesque but the idea of getting out your way and doing a whole lotta riding is something I'm gonna make happen one of these days.

Cookey - you ever ride up behind Nice through Aspremont and down the Gorge de Vesubie? That narrow canyon rd is amazing but there are a million of them like that. That medeival village above Menton, the corniche roads man I miss it there.
Come over we'll ride the coast down to Mexico.:)

Hi ayu :)

t, i'll hold ya to that... been reading McCarthy's border trillogy so yeah I gotta get down into Mexico. ha yeah and sure I've ridden up behind Nice, off the top of my head I can remember a few of those medeival villages. Carros perched on top of a hill being one and Tourettes sur Loup out on a promontory the other... and Eze though i've only looked up at it from the sea... labarinth streets that get so narrow you have to get off yr bike and walk. I've not been to Aspremont, close though up around Gap and along the route Napolleon. Like you say theres a million of'em round here. Lookin forward to that ride in the morning now.
