Death And Motorcycles. A Discussion

You Can Die On A Motorcycle. No Kidding.

I don’t know how many conversations I’ve had to endure from people who are obsessed with the dangers of motorcycling. It’s as if it’s their life mission to tell everyone who rides about their grandiose knowledge and wisdom on this matter.

This video explains how I understand the topic and what I think these hand-wringers are really up to.

Hardin County, Ohio Photos Are Complete

Hardin County Photos Are Complete

The Hardin County photos for the Ohio County Photography Project are finished.

Like most of the counties in the northwest section of Ohio, it can be difficult to find interesting photos that are unique to the county visited. Happy to say that I found some interesting subjects.

You can ride along for the ride to and from Hardin County, but I didn’t roll the cameras while in the Hardin county. I wanted to stay focused on the project instead of motovlogging.

Ohio’s Tail Of The Dragon. State Route 536

Ohio’s Tail Of The Dragon. What A Ride!

Ohio’s “Tail Of The Dragon” is actually better than Tennessee’s in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong, both are incredible. Ohio State Route 536 is closer and has less traffic. The road is just as thrilling. Here is a video of the ride.

And here is the the long version which covers many topics as I ride through the cities of –

 

Changing Goldwing To Spectro Motorcycle Oil

Spectro Motorcycle Oil For My 2015 Goldwing F6B

This is a video I shot where I talk about Spectro synthetic motorcycle oil. I was out warming the bike up before I changed from Mobil 1 Synthetic motorcycle oil.

Spectro motorcycle oil did improve the rough shifting, but that’s not 100% conclusive. Any oil change may have improved it. Overall, Spectro Motorcycle oil seems to be good. I will try Amsoil next just to see if the shifting characteristics change any.

The Reason I Quit Motovlogging.

I quit motovlogging before I even got started. I never could come up with a system that was hassle-free enough to work and the content that I created really wasn’t that good.

Walterific is one that I watch and enjoy occasionally. He’s geared towards a younger crowd, but I always found his videos to be about as good as you can get on a bike. I often wondered how he did all the things he did while riding without a problem. The answer was that that he couldn’t. It caught up with him eventually.

Walter seems like a great guy and I’m sure he’ll find a way to motovlog . Actually, it happened while he was changing a song on his radio and not while motovlogging, but for me, motovlogging had the same problem. There were little distractions that had to take place to do it. Distractions on motorcycles(or any vehicle), just aren’t worth it.

I am thinking about trying to use what I learned creating videos to do other types of videos, but it is much more difficult to come up with content worth recording than you would think. It’s a talent and a skill like photography or anything else.
