I want to showcase one of the vids I produced last year. It was a crazy idea to go for a ride to couple interestingly named streets in London. I started off by preparing supplies and getting a co-pilot… I was going to a Moon (st) after all…
- 4K @ 30 frames per second,
- 1080p @ 120fps!!
- and 720p @ 240fps!!!!
apparently it is thanks to the new chip: SoC Ambarella A9 (dual A9 ARM Core ? CortexTM-A9 processor 1GHz with FPU accelerator) – whatever it is it must be made by Santa’s Elves as it has some MAGIC!
On top of that Hero 4 is supposed to have a 13-megapixel photosensor with a completely new lens for better low light capabilities! NICE! Winter is coming as they say in Winterfell so riding in the dark will be back into fashion…
I was never a fan of GoPro but this is stunning and is supposed to be released in October… I will seriously consider getting one 🙂
Taking your ?330 worth camera to a race including obstacles, mud, jumping into water and electric shocks seems like a bad idea… but if you want to get good footage… you do not really have a choice 🙂 I was worried about my Drift but decided that I’ll give it a go. Obviously the waterproof cover is a MUST! Then there is a problem of storage and Continue reading Hardest test for the Drift Ghost-S camera – ToughMudder
My first experience with an electric motorcycle was very pleasant. The bike I had a chance to ride was Saietta from AgilityMotors.
I divided the experience into 3 parts:
Part 1 gives you an overview of the bike and how it operates
Recently my Drift played a prank on me and corrupted the recording… I realised only when I got to my destination… The camera was frozen and green light/screen on… I guess it froze during creation of the new file (over 4GB files are stored separately)… anyway… I lost all footage from the next files but there was still hope for the first one… Continue reading when Drift Ghost-S corrupts the files… – try this recovery tool
The requirement to display the tax disk on your vehicle never made much sense to me. .. I always had it on my car as it is not as much hustle but it was always a pain in the butt on the motorcycle… Continue reading bye bye taxdisk! – and why I ride without it anyway…
I ride in London all year round. It hardly ever snows here. And the road temperature /gritting usually does not usually get low enough to form ice.
However sometimes mother nature pulls out a joker and plays a hard (snow)ball….
Sometimes it can get icy or snow heavily and on those days I leave my bike at home. The problem is sometimes this happens when I’m already there or on my way… then getting home becomes a challenge.
I had couple occasions where I did end up riding in snow and it is scary. I would strongly suggest stopping and picking up the bike when weather improves… anyway have a look at my voyages where I was stupid enough to keep on going:
Sometimes you need to take a break as the bad weather continues… but after a week or two you will be really excited to get back on 🙂 :
Ride Safe (and Avoid snow/ice!)
OK. that was one of those WTF moments. I have to admit I almost forgot about this video but it is amusing. I have no idea who thrown that milk container and why… but he must have been a complete knob. It seems he/she throws the milk from the street below the bridge… the bottle flies in the air and lands in the middle of the road just next to a passing motorcyclist. With just a bit different timing /angle and this could have been a tragedy. How mindless and stupid some people are?
One of the reasons why I publish my videos is to share my experiences with other riders. I hope that by watching the close calls you learn about dangers of motorcycling with me. I always try to learn from my mistakes or where something surprises me. Continue reading What have I learned from that close call…
Don’t you hate when people do not do their job properly? I do. Especially if those people are in the position of power. Or they think they are… anyway… I want to give you a bit of info about my close encounters with a special kind… PCSOs. Continue reading PCSOs – learn what you enforce!
