Bad, Bad Video

You know the expression "A face only a mother could love"?  Well, these videos are footage only a mother could love.  I shot this a couple months ago while my brother was in town riding with us.  It is crappy video taken on a camera that was never meant to be affixed to a motorbike.  It could not handle the engine vibration or the windshield.

Watch these videos at your own risk!!  I will not be responsible for replacing your keyboard if you vomit on it due to motion sickness.  You are on your own with hearing specialists, hearing loss and hearing aids due to the loud engine noise.  Please look away if the shakes get to be too much.  Please turn the volume on your speakers down!!

These are meant for mother and grandmother to see so they can watch Brother ride.  And proof that I didn't kill him, nor coerce him into riding.

For all others, this is a small, very small, portion of Hwy 60 north of Dahlonega, GA.  It is the small section between the Hwy 19 split and Woody Gap.  Hwy 60 is one of many attractive roads for motorbikes, sports cars and suicidal bicyclists.

Again, you have been warned...


  1. It's OK - I watched them all with my eyes closed!

  2. Hi Nikos,

    Thank you for taking all safety precautions! Warms my heart that you are OK. :)


  3. Dear Lori:

    You know they really weren't that bad. They were a start and a benchmark. You'll do much better in the future as you become more comfortable with the media and work with a camera that is up to rigors of the road. I look forward to more of your videos in the future.

    Fondest regards,

  4. Dear Jack,

    Thanks for the kind words. I'm hoping that your prophecy will prove true. But today was definitely not that day. I thought I had everything completely set up, ready and button depressed for video! Three hours later I look to turn it off or see if the battery is dead...and discover that it hadn't taken ANY video. I've never had so much difficulty with electronics!! :-)
