A longer than usual, 3/4 hour Motorcycle trip around my local countryside and its villages, videoed on two action cameras, one helmet mounted, and one chest mounted!
This is the Helmet mounted version, on a warm, sunny, late February day...>>>

A very enjoyable tour!

March coming up now, with its longer and warmer days!

Lots more Motorcycle videos to come now!

Many thanks for watching, Folks!

Many thanks, Marty!

It's fun, now and again, to video record my journeys and activities in; "vintage colour", to bring back memories of my many Motorcycle rides in; "Olden Times", the 1940s, etc, when the whole World was Black-and-White!...
...(before "Snow White in Technicolour" hit the screen)!
!

.. it's a; "nostalgia thing"!

Take care, all!

Sometimes it can be too chilly for a ride, and common sense takes over... :lol: ... :lol: ...>>>

It's sometimes Sunny, but a chilly Northerly wind can often remind me to stay at home in the warm!.... ;) ... ;) ...!

A Tale of Two Cameras!.... :D ....!

Friday 24th May 2019.

A journey to the shops in two parts, in the same video.

Part 1: With helmet mounted Campark X20 4k Action Camera.
Part 2: The same journey with a handlebar mounted SJ Cam SJ4000 Action Camera....
...facing me!

Both cameras recording at the same time!

Edited with "Windows Movie Maker".

I now need a program to produce a similar video on the main screen, with a smaller "thumbnail" view on the upper corner of the same screen!
BOTH videos displaying on the same screen at the same time!

Here we go Chums....a rare opportunity to view the originator of these amazing motorcycling videos!... :rolleyes: ...>>>

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2hlxkTO2ko

Enjoy?..... :lol: ... :lol: ...!

Hello, all my two-wheeled, (and occasionally three-wheeled), Chums!
Its Summertime here, in the Land of the Angles and Saxons, so lots of rides are in the book for most days!

Last Sundays ride from Hereford (England) to Abergavenny (Wales) on a nice warm day for the usual Sunday Biker meet-up.

The whole 35-minute video of the whole journey there, after leaving the city boundary....>>>

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJsXt4BB1xM&t=291s

...not forgetting all my other recent rides!...>>>

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp5lKG ... 9JA/videos

Making the most of the Summer weather!

Many thanks for watching, Chums!

Paul.... :D ...!

...blimey, all you blokes, and bloke-esses.... :o .....

It about time you all caught up with the latest in Fozzer's explorations of the English and the Welsh Countryside....>>>

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp5lKG ... 9JA/videos

Still, lots so fun to be had, now that we are in the middle of Autumn, in the Northern Hemisphere!

Take care, all you two-wheelers out there!

Hello Chums!
Its Winter-time here in Merrie Olde England, and northern parts of the USA, so its time for you Sun-bathing Chaps in the lower regions, (hemispherical-wise), to observe some of our two-wheeled goings-on in the Motorcycle World, at this frosty time of the year!...>>>

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp5lKG ... 9JA/videos

Time for Winter-Woolies, when on the saddle!

Take care Chums, as we dream of hot weather!

Last Sundays Biker meet-up in the land of the Welsh!....>>>

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7Zl7sQ3hig

A wonderful journey, as usual, recorded in Sepia colour for a change, to remind me of the same trip in my 1950s.

Social distancing still in operation due to the Virus, so no tours around the bikes!

After a spell of very hot weather we are now getting rain and storms, and the days are getting noticably shorter now that Summer has gone!

Paul...still riding my Bike every day...touring and shopping!.... B-) ...!

A trip last Sunday, 30th August 2020 to visit some of my family in the Royal Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire.
The return 30-mile journey from Cinderford back to my home in Hereford city.
A full 45 minute vidoo with no cutting and splicing involved....
...it took ages to process in Windows Movie Maker, and 2-1/2 hours to upload to YouTube at 36 Mb/s fibre connection!

Enjoy the 30-mile journey, starting at 7.00 PM, through the Gloucestershire and Herefordshire countryside, and arriving home at 7.45 PM just as the sun was setting!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlwrjal9pw0&t=1710s

It always seems a shame to cut and splice my videos to make them smaller in size, but that spoils the "feeling" of the complete journey!

The other reason why I took the journey was because my Grandson had downloaded Flight Sim 2020 onto his gaming tower computer, and he wantd to show it to me to think what I thought about it, and is it worth buying @ £60?
He took me on a flight around my old Flight Sim stamping grounds, all around San Francisco, Los Angeles, and the Highway 1, Pacific Coast!
It looks good, but doesent have the same "comfortable" feeling as my old Flight Unlimited II, FS2002, FS2004, and FSX....
...and most/all of the familliar airfields and air strips are missing!
Will I buy it?...
...time will tell...LOL... :wink2: ...!

October is rapidly on its way, and the weather is slowly getting colder in England, and sometime too uncomfortable to go out for a ride, so more time is spent on the computer reacalling other warmer times....!
Some stuff from Stateside, remembering all my many Motorcycle and Flight Sim Chums in the USA!

From the town of Bishop, on Highway 395, from north Los Angeles, California to Reno, Nevada, hugging the magnificent Sierra Nevada Mountains.
An area I know like the back of my hand, from all my many years of Microsoft Flight Simming around there!
Listen to The local Bishop Radio!....>>> https://www.mainstreamnetwork.com/liste ... on=kibs-fm
..all the latest radio news!
...and take a trip along the wonderful Highway 395, travelling through Lone Pine and Bishop!
A magical journey.....>>>
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbwujqhE2sI&t=333s
A journey I love!

Something different, when it's too cold and uncomfortable to go out for a ride on the bike!

Lots more Biking stuff coming up Chums, when I can drag myself away from cooking amazing stuff in my kitchen every day/five minutes!

Take care all...and be SAFEl!

Paul....with a BIG smile!... :D ...!

After some eight months of trying to get a haircut during the Coronavirus Pandemic lockdown...

The second haircut during that period that I have managed to get a haircut!

A motorcycle trip to the Barbers Shop in town!...>>>
