I think this video says it all….a message worth repeating over and over.
Silly enough, a break from my regular posts…Thought this was funny enough…mocking is the best form of flattering…don’t you think?
This seems like a great idea…practical for bringing along on a bike? I think so…take a look at this smart gadget. What do you think?
You can add a kettle and grill too. Small enough and light enough for bike travel?
Cheryl and I practice this technique as much as we can….do you agree this is a proper way to change gears without using the clutch or is it bad practice?
Forgive me if this sounds a little remedial, but I see a lot of guys out on the road who don’t know how to do this. Works on any bike, be it crotch rocket, assless chaps mobile or two-wheeled Hummer H2.
The benefit is smoother, faster shifts and slightly lower clutch wear. It’s just easier and will better enable you to work shifting into the rest of your riding.
Super easy to do. As you accelerate and are approaching the point where you want to shift up, sneak your toe under the lever and apply a little upwards pressure. Now, quickly close the throttle a little while keeping that upward pressure on the shift liver, feel the gear slip home, and open it back up. Continue reading
Best quote: “People say to me ‘Aren’t you afraid to die?’, and I say ‘Well, are you afraid to live?’”
I Love videos like this…so articulate and those of us who ride will totally relate to this video….I know I am obsessed with bikes but when I watched this I know I am not alone. He talks about 2-3 weeks to ride….we are fortunate to have had many weeks on board or our bikes…making us want to stretch out each trip to months.
ENJOY! Continue reading
You need to watch this if you love Bald Eagles like I do. The weekend of November 23rd, Cheryl and I will be heading out only about an hour east of where we live to check out the annual eagles feast. Thousands of eagles all ages arrive to feed on the spawning salmon around Harrison Mills, BC. I go every year but this year Cheryl is coming with her high-powered new work camera. We don’t have a lens like Christian used in this video, a local photographer but I am certain we will get some great shots.
Enjoy! We are truly lucky to live so close to this annual phenomenon.
“I was on my way to the funeral with my mom,” Bitney told HuffPost Live in the above clip, “and I received a phone call from one of his relatives letting me know that if I tried to show up his father and uncle were going to attack me… I know that grief can cause people to do things they wouldn’t normally do. But I never imagined that [his mother] would try to erase me from existence.”
Watch this dramatic short video showcasing why we live in BC and Vancouver. Watch the entire video and you will get a taste of why we are called Beautiful BC. Enjoy, especially for those who are not from here.
Christian Sasse is a local photographer near Vancouver who happens to be someone I met while he was filming and taking pictures of Bald Eagles last year. I love wild life of all sorts but the majestic Bald Eagle, especially this time of year while the salmon spawn are in an abundance. Christian, also known as just Sasse is a very talented relatively new photographer in this field and the video below is show casing Port Hardy on Vancouver Island’s north. We both have not been up there yet but will do one day. Enjoy a slice of heaven and watch the video Continue reading
Worthy to be a BLOG post…hope my mom sees this….;-)
After we got married on August 14th 2013, we managed to get away for a few nights at the end of August. Here is a short video of what we saw, rode in and some of the sounds of our bikes with a tiny bit of music at the end. I am in no way even close to a videographer but at least I make attempts…
FYI! ;-) We own both DVD’s but this is cool Netflix is carrying both trips!
Look what our bikes can do…maybe not quite how we ride yet….;-)
Just playing around with iMovie…fun little trailer
