Video series of a 1000 mile motorcycle trip

This is a politics-free post. It's a distraction from the carnage. :-)

As many of you know, I've been blogging in NW Ohio for many years (since mid-2002).

My most recent blog-based project is a 4 episode video series that chronicles a 1000 mile motorcycle trip through NW Ohio and Lower Michigan.

Day 3 is my favorite. If you don't watch any others, at least watch Day 3.

It took quite a bit of time to edit, but I'm proud of it.

Check it out, and let me know what you think!

it's a start.

What is Wild Angel number 1 riding? A Vespa scooter?

Day 1: I enjoyed this segment the best of the three.

Day 2: About 6 minutes into the video I can't hear what's being said at the winery. Annoying! I wish you'd done an interview with the lady just off camera. Why does the guy in the foreground keep sticking his honker into the glass?

Why don't we get an interview with the owner of the bike shop? You said he was pretty cool, a '60s type, then didn't show anything. Weasel!

Day 3: The narrator says that we're headed back home, then says that we found some exciting places that really took us by surprise, leading your dumb audience to believe that segment 3 has additional, interesting places and interviews on it. No such luck.

This is pretty good stuff. Thanks for posing!

The scoot in the videos is a Yamaha Majesty. It's about 4 times the size of a Vespa, so it handles highway speeds very well.

As far as my "honker" in the wine tasting. Here's why:

Remember your 4 S's
Swirl : Swirl the wine to release the aroma's
Sniff: Decipher the unique fragrances that you can detect .
Sip: Small - NO GULPING !
Savor: Enjoy the abundance of textures and flavors the wine creates. This includes the finish, or after taste.


Thanks for the comment!

Very nice. When was the trip?

We went in early September.

I don't know about any four esses. I guess I can come up with four tees:

Bottom's up!
Here's mud in your eye!
Here's how!

and, made famous in Jaws I:
Here's to swimmin' with bow legged women!

So when's your next video road trip?
