Gillies Range Ride

A cautious first ride up the Gillies since my last visit two years ago. The surface is much improved since my last visit and I scored a beautiful fine day and very little traffic on this run. A very enjoyable ride indeed.

Nice pipes. What setup are you using?
I'm using a D & D 553-24M full system as seen below.

Also NO wind noise! Using an external mic?
I use a GoPro Hero 2 which has a 1/8" stereo jack for an external microphone into which I plug an audio-technica ATR3350 powered microphone. I run the cord up to my jacket pocket where the excess cord and power unit are kept and from there I run the cord up under my jacket and into the back protector pocket of the jacket into which I place the microphone. The microphone is wrapped in foam to further reduce wind noise. It all works very well as you have noted with only a slight flapping of the jacket being heard occasionally at high speed.

I absolutely can't say enough about the D&D full 2 into 2 system. The sound. Oh my God. And along with opening up the intake on my Thruxton made the thing run like a turpentined cat. :surprise:

I'd have to agree although they are probably a touch too loud for most tastes. If they had removable baffles like the Arrows/TEC system that would allow modification/adjustment of the sound level they would be the perfect system.
