Today\'s Ride Video ... \"FlatLanders\"

All,

Can't believe I got up at 5:00 am for a ride. Was nice and cool, tho. That's a great way to beat the heat and the traffic.

Well, here in Illinois ... we got a lot of "flat & straight" ... so we normally cross over the river to Missouri to ride ... BUT ... today, we "FlatLanders" actually did find some curves! LOL.

... and some gravel ...

... and some really big bumps ...

... and DOGS!! ...

Watch the video ... you'll see 3 dogs. One over a blind hill (this guy):



I had a blast.

Here's a video:

The countryside reminds me a lot of things around here. They're chipping a lot of the roads right now.
Nice vid.

I grew up in Decatur so I'm all too familiar with flatlands corn and soybeans.... Looks like you boys found some fun routes though
And you were all so well behaved ... (at least on camera cuts you put in lol). Great job on the music and vid editing too

Nice vid Rat. I made it out with a buddy today for a nice 125 mile trip over on this side of the bridge. We had so much fun we had to do DD twice!!! We have made our own nice little route. Maybe we can hook up soon and you can record the route.

BTW....wtf is with that little dog just standing there in the middle of the road? You guys must have scared him stiff!!! Usually those little dogs go bonkers for bikers.

Looks like fun.....wish I knew a group here in Ohio to ride with. Haven't lived here that long....but those roads remind me of Kentucky where I used to ride.

Midge,

I LOVE DD.


T, TT, D, DD, MM, 94 are all so much fun.
I usually hit them every Saturday morning early when there is no traffic. Traffic sucks in the afternoon because of all the wineries. I'll see if I can create a map of the route we run.

I did the same sorta thing with us riding dirt. Unfortunately I have no place to host it (The video) so its been the best kept secret in the world! Damn that was a lot of work! SO I can really appreciate what you put together! Awesome job!

Re: Today\'s Ride Video ... \"FlatLanders\"

My video gear is all "cheap-o" ...

I got several different ones. Everything is home made or garage bought.

Best advice I can give ... don't do the home made thing. Save yourself a LOT of trouble and go to www.sportbikecam.com ... their stuff WORKS (every time ... unlike mine).

But, here's my bonks:

http://flandersland.tzo.com/bike/MagicRat/CameraMount/

I have a Sony DCR-TRV27 (NTSC) camcorder, a Panasonic SV/AV-30 DV recorder, and a Canon Powershot G-5 digicam.

Yep ... the video hosting thing sorta sucks. If you can get it down to under 10 MB, www.uponone.com will host it if it is "interesting enough" ... mine were not always. LOL.
