Yamaha wr250x Mods

I found a nice cool shaded spot to take a break from the heat and go over some of the mods I've done to my bike.

Wildlife Rescue Center? Or some such place that I accidentally found

I went scouting for an alternate route into town (found one, but that's another video), and stumbled upon some sort of wildlife rescue type place. There was a large herd of antelope looking things. There was some deer, both large and small and various other similar type animals.

It's been a while... Back on the bike

It's like starting all over. Apparently I forgot how to use a GoPro. Oh well.

wr250x Stripped Spark Plug Threads, Ugh!

In which I talk about breaking down, discovering the problem and how I dealt with it (months later).

Silly Encounters with Motorcycle "Gang" Members

A random non-encounter on the road with a biker that ignored me, reminded me of an encounter when I was just 18 years old.

GoPro Hero3 Black Edition, Helmet Cam and Audio Test

First test with the GoPro Hero3 Black Edition. 1080p @ 30fps. At a glance, the video quality is stunning! What caught me off guard is the file size.

With my old HeroHD, an hour of video is roughly 1GB at 720p/30fps. The Hero3 doesn't have a 720p/30fps mode, the closest settings are 720p/60fps and 1080p/30fps. With either of those, I'm getting roughly 10 minutes at 1.2GB!! HUGE difference. Had I realized that, I would have bought a 64GB sd card instead of the 16GB I got.

D'oh! Pulled Over For Speeding

It's been quite a while since I've been pulled over, but it happens. To be honest, I had no idea how fast I was going, I usually just go along with traffic. There was only one other car on the road at the time and he was going just as fast as I was.

I was probably singled out for being on a bike. If given a choice between the two, I can understand going after the bike as I'm sure the stats would probably be in favor of writing multiple citations. I've seen too many riders who don't even have their 'M' endorsement and others who don't bother with their state inspection. Fair enough. The state trooper was nice and it worked out in the end. *phew*

Accidents Happen - Common Courtesy

I was stopped at a red light on the wr250x and heard the unmistakable car crunch sound as the car to my right lunged forward a bit. It wasn't bad at all, but I as a bit miffed at the driver (and her passenger). If you crash your car into someone else car, you should probably get out immediately and make sure they are ok, right? I mean, that's common courtesy. Sheesh.
