That is a sweet way of cleaning off the truck, may have to get a blower like that. Beats using a brush like I did this morning. :angry-screaming:

Keep smiling

Hello Chums!

Saturday the 25th of March 2017.

A fantastic, bright sunny, early Spring afternoon, to take a ride on my Motorcycle down the highways and byways of Rural Herefordshire.

Still a little bit chilly for my old bones, 57*F, but I wrapped up in warm clothes and enjoyed the sunshine!

Enjoy the trip with me!...>>>>

Hello Chums!..... :D ...!

Another nice sunny mid afternoon, so what could be nicer than a short run out into the countryside for a visit to a Local Saxon Church, of which there are many in Herefordshire, together with Medieval Castles!

This particular 12th Century Church...>>> https://www.hereford.anglican.org/ManselLacy/

And my trip!...>>>

Hello Chums.... :D ...!

...more fun in the sun!

Sunday's ride, 2nd April 2017 to Abergavenny to met up with the Bikers in the 'Bus Park.

A nice sunny day, with a mid day temperature of 57 degrees F.

The return journey from Abergavenny, back to Hereford...>>>

Lots of rides now that Spring and Summer is on its way!

I hope you enjoy my trip through the Monmouthshire and Herefordshire countryside, amongst the Black Mountains!

....and during my stop at the Bike meeting in the Bus Station Park at Abergavenny, I did a walk around and videoed the Bikers and their Bikes.....>>>

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rU6R6Wi ... e=youtu.be

This was followed by my return journey back to Hereford in the preceding video.

A grand day out, altogether, in the early Spring sunshine!

I hope you enjoyed the whole trip!

Just a little fun snippet from today's short journey!

...with added music...>>>

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkIsuZi-bcI&t=15s

I have my Microphone fitted inside my helmet for recording sounds on my Video Camera (SJ Cam 4000), but unlike my American Biker Chums, I am not very good at "talking" endlessly! (Moto-blogging!), during my trips, and describing the scenery, etc, as it passes by.
...or just chatting away, about anything and everything whilst riding!.... ;) ....!
Which is why I always have to "text-narrate" my journeys on the film during editing, or in this case, add music instead!

Each time I go out for a video ride I constantly try to find a location on me, or my Bike, for my Mic, just to pick up my exhaust/engine sound, and avoid picking up wind noise at the same time!

Still haven't found the ideal location for the Mic yet!

Paul.... :D ....!

....an excellent example of "Moto-Blogging" by Freedom Rider in Massachusetts (New England).

Ta Log!.... :D ....!

The thing I like about my You Tube "Motobloggers" is listening to the sound of their Harley Davidson big-twin exhausts as they ride.

I just wish I could get a similar sort of exhaust sound from my Honda Twin but without all the wind noise, and me coughing and spluttering that goes with it!

Maybe, if I poke my Microphone up the rear-end, (where the Sun dont shine!), of my exhaust pipes?..... :shock: ..... :lol: ....!

...of course, it may sound better if I really had a Harley Davidson Big Twin in the first place... :pray: ...!

Maybe some of the Riders use cameras, Go-Pro, Sena, etc, that have built-in filters, to prevent recording extraneous noises/sounds?

Even tho' I have a "fluffy" cover over my Mic, (like the pro's use), it still picks up wind noise, when on the move!

Still got lots of experiments to do with Microphone placement... :? ...!

Maybe I should wrap me, and my Mic, in a woolly blanket?.... :think: ....!

...... :lol: ....!

My latest trip from Hereford to Pembridge Village, and Shobdon Airfield (EGBS) on the 8th of April 2017.

A beautiful sunny day in Herefordshire!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZ-bKyC4Y8A

I did take a few photos around the Airfield, but with "Elf and Safety" restrictions abounding, there always a chance of getting a tap on the shoulder by a Hi-Viz jacketed security individual!

With everything fenced-off, very little chance of wandering around the Aircraft on the ground!

...a shame, for a small airfield. I remember it never used to be like it in the distant past!

Hello Jet!.... :D ...!

Many Thanks for popping over to our side of "The Pond", especially as I seem to spend all my Flight Sim time over your side!... ;) ...!

The Bike:
Phelon and Moore (P&M) Panther!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phelon_%26_Moore

Very popular over here in England, especially amongst Side-Car enthusiasts in its later days in 600 and 650cc single cylinder sizes!
I almost purchased one in 1960 for my Sidecar, but finally opted for my 1948 Vincent HRD 1000cc Vee-Twin instead!

Motorcycle Cannonball Run....(Forget the 1981 Burt Reynolds film!)...... :lol: ...!

From the East Coast to the West Coast.

I love all these old Machines, and for anyone else similarly interested, a You Tube visit to the various annual; "Motorcycle Cannonball Run" is well worth a visit to observe them!
Some wonderful vintage machines: Indian, Henderson, Harley Davidson, Excelsior, BMW, and some old BSA's, etc, from Britain!

http://www.motorcyclecannonball.com/

The 2016 Cannonball Run. Part 1!...>>>

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4DfqVgXghE&t=47s

Follow them all, from start to finish, for a motorcycle experience, back in the Olden Days!

"Wind in the Hair and flies in the Teeth" is not only restricted to vintage aircraft!.... :D ....!

....enjoy!

Paul....Live the Ride!..... :mrgreen: ...!

The famous "Harley Time Line"!...>>>>

Including examples of all the various Models, from 1909 to the present day....

Many Thanks, Dave!..... :D ...!

Like you, waiting for the weather to get a little bit warmer.... :pray: ....

...but it still doesn't stop me from going out and about on my rides....

...with my trusty Video Camera!

As long as its not poring with rain...I'm good to go!.... :dance: ....!

Some of the machines on the Cannonball Run....Notice the preponderance of 1915 Harley Davidsons! Wonderful "F-Head" machines; (Inlet over Exhaust Valves)....Fast and reliable!.... ;) ....!
