Bear and I are ripping it up in the snow!


It's taking some getting used to but I'm having a blast so far this winter and it's not even winter yet.

I stopped by the boat ramp parking lot and did just that. Much to the amusement of the cop parked in the corner.

Video or it didn't happen.

HeHeHEHEHEEH  I did the same several times, 2 times had the cops stop me. Both times they were cool = no tickets.

Love the bear, can you ride on the commute lane with him on board?

Dan and I just came back from a short ride. We ended up going west and through some of the French villages that dot the landscape. It was the first time with our new GoPro, so perhaps later I'll have a long, boring video to share with you guys  8)

Ok, a few caveats here:
- The was our first time with the GoPro on the bike (as noted when it almost fell off a little bit into the ride)
- It is sped up to 2x, because... well, it is a bit boring
- No idea what goes on with the sound. This is all Dan's work...
- It was about 10-12C today (Sunday) and a great day out

I hope that we get some more time in editing, because the reason we (Dan) bought the silly thing was to record some Awesome Viewstm when we're in South Africa next month  :popcorn:

Constructive criticism and editing hints are appreciated!

It works.

IMO it'll be a great addition to your awesome ride reports.
Can't wait for the South Africa report.

Oh, and by the way, Miss South Africa is the new Miss Universe.  :)
