I started riding this year and, like everyone here I'm sure, have totally become addicted. I decided to get a Ninja 500R as my first bike and have been really happy with it so far! Recently I've started doing more day trips up through the interior (Duffy, Merritt, Spences Bridge, etc.) and have found that to be a whole new level of fun.
I've made a little video montage of my adventures so far. I picked up a gimbal for the GoPro and that really has transformed the footage attainable with it. I'll post a video review of it soon for those interested!
