Me and my 599

#1 Unread post by Flipper » Thu Jul 23, 2009 8:30 pm

I just got a Gopro camera and made my first motorcycle video.
I had so much anxiety over having it fly off, but it stayed in place really well.
Take a look.

That was a pretty darn good video. A lot more entertaining then a lot of on board videos. Nice editing.

Thanks guys.
I'm feeling more confident with the camera mounts now so I'll try some more angles next time.

If I could find a BatGirl costume I would definitely wear it....uh, if it had built in armor.

I've been playing bass on and off since I was about 20.
Lets just say, a very long time ago. :laughing:

While I could see that Batman (it is Batman?) suit may impress squids and fanboys, what would a woman do with it? Impress everone with her masculinity. And as for being Gay, half the world follows queer trends in everything from clothes to furniture. As the self imposed leaders of fashion would fall so low as this fake muscle suit is frightening. :roll:

However, all those bulges would hide a lot of armor. No, never... :laughing:

Good job with the video. Flowed well with the music. Like your "all the gear..." attitude, too.

Nice bike BTW, always was impressed with the 599, too bad it was so unappreciated in North America.
There is no such thing as a bad motorcycle.

What's wrong with that?!



I dunno, I think a suit like that would be kind of cool. Not as a regular riding suit, mind you, but for those special days when you just feel like the biggest, baddest superhero on the block.

I suspect that a thread featuring a video of you wearing THAT on the bike would have legs :wink:

Just sayin......

Loved coming along for the ride!

Liked the diff camera angles too - maybe captcrashidaho could use some add'l film makers...

loved your bass covers too ... especially the steppenwolf with your headgear... :D

rock on!

You know, that's black armor I'd actually buy.... If I still had any money. :(
