Hey just testing out my first valve adjustment, Rox risers, and SJ4000 cam. I'll be riding harder in future videos.
Thanks. Glad you enjoyed a peak of some of the trail network here. Single track is my favorite riding as it keeps you alert and reactive. Highway driving is not for me. If you could see it from above it would look like a scoop of spaghetti noodles sprawling across the plate.Totally Awesome! Love it!
Those are some pretty sweet trail you have there. I'm jealous....
So you're a rebel. I wasn't seeing a lot of riding gear. I generally don't wear gear on casual trails except for gloves. (Delicate hands).. LOL
I started off treating my new TW like I wanted her to look all purdy on the road but since she's purely off road now I've been getting better at riding rough terrain. Slow first and getting fast later. Sometimes I slow right down to a crawl and which helps to build control for when I feel up to going really fast. It helps if you're familiar with the trails you're in too. Over 2500km off road and I only dropped my bike about 5 times. Once from the stock front tire on gravel, once picking up my sunglasses and once with a hard rubber 244 front tire on frost..etc. Just stupid beginner mistakes. I imagine motocrossers laughing at the TW but follow me through the swamp over technical terrain and see who's laughing then. I've had to keep up with 250s and I know it takes some effort to push a TW like that but I've done pretty good myself. They don't get too far ahead on the open dirt but they tend to have trouble in the technical trails. I bet it takes a lot more skill to run a motocross bike though my trails. The TW is made for this.Now that's you have a camera we are in for some great video. I'm sure of it !
Up until recently I never wore gear but I'm trying to do it more when riding with others, it always seems to become competitive. In fact tomorrow will be a full adv gear over motorcross gear day, this whole gear thing is breaking the bank lately though. Riding with the singe track guys I just met requires gear. They don't seem to want to do less than the fastest possible on any given trail, it's only a matter of time till I get a bigger head than my body can pull off trying to keep with them. So far they can't lose me though They truly are fast, all ride 400 cc plus, most 650's but they ride them like they're riding 250's. Here's the kicker, they are all generally 50 years old plus and smoke the young ins most days. Ex-moto cross riders the lot of them. I haven't had this much fun in years. Every time I ride with them it's like going to motocross school. Well anyway you should have gear because you never know when you're going to need it. I rode the first few times with them in jeans and a t-shirt. It was stupid and dangerous, but... you know how it is. End of day heaving gear ready to throw on (when needed and justified) makes all the difference. Having it handy turns into actually wearing it.
What software are you currently using? I am trying to figure out the free Sony Action Cam Movie Creator software, and it's got bugs for sure. Audio and video are choppy while using the software, makes me nauseous, but finished video (1080P 60FPS MP4) is amazing on the computer. I want to be able to burn DVD or load to USB flash drive to play on modern TV with USB ports.This was my first riding video but I did film editing in college which is slowly coming back to me. Once I get a better understanding of the software I'm using now the vids will be better. Unfortunately I'm on limited use rural internet so I have to drop my resolution as to not use all my net usage for the month.
Thats true but Stagewex mounts one to the passenger peg hoop on the right side. It adds awesome to videos when edited in. For some reason it's not a bad spot to mount, I would have never believed it. It's a hero 4, so no stabilization either.I suggest a few tests of different camera mounting positions such as head, chest or bike. I think mounted somewhere on the body makes for a smoother picture due to the shock absorption of the rider.
