Great video. It looks fairly quick and the tablet mount looks pretty awesome.

Nice video Extreme, Thanks for posting.
How do you like the slingshot helmet ?
The helmets ARE nice, but here's a cheaper alternative I like a lot better. 100% carbon fiber, with built in, drop down sun shield, eliminating the need to carry two shields. It's incredibly light & aerodynamic and I actually like it better than my $800.00 Nexx helmet.
The best part is, it's under $200.00!

Question:

I'm hearing the high pitch that I presume is what everyone has been referring to like it was the transmission howling. Can someone watching the video confirm? Curious because that sound was noticeably absent in the demo ride videos I had seen previously before they started shipping. Figure it is probably the howling, but could just be a turbo for all I really know.

Looks like a great ride. Would like to reverse whatever change they made that added that squeal when mine arrives though ;)

He was playing with the gopro app on the tablet. You can watch what you are recording.

Nice video, but best recording of the whine I've heard yet. Louder when accelerating but pretty constant. Now it IS sounding more like gear whine.
Which kind of bums me out.

But God that looks like fun anyway.
