DIY Heated Gear Upgrade

Since I launched my blog 5 years ago with diy heated gloves, much better technology is available to the diyer.  When it was time to remake my gloves a couple of years ago, I chose not to because the wiring was annoying.

Trip Report: FZ1OA Octoberfest

October 9 – 11, 2015:  FZ1OA Octoberfest

The gatherings with the members of the FZ1OA have started to feel as much like renuions than rally.  I often say it's my FZ1 family and the rallys are a family reunion.  This one felt more like that than any of the others.

Trip Preview: FZ1OA Octoberfest

October 9 - 11, 2015.  I still have to type the report but here are two of the three videos from the weekend.  Slow laptop makes video editing more of a chore than it already is.

I left home at the butt crack of dawn to get to TWoS in time for the Friday morning ride.  Cruzman helped me get the tent up enough to claim a spot.  Then I rushed setting up the cameras using the handlebar and rear rack since it was the easiest.

After a night and morning of rain I wasn't too keen on a long ride.  Wet roads and rolling fog made for an interesting run.

Look for one more video from walking around TWoS.

Maintenance: Replacing the chain

9 September 2015:  Ride less, wrench more?!

About 2 months after ordering my new chain, I finally put it on.  During this year's FZ1OA Rally, I realized babying my current chain to get a few more miles out of it wasn't going to work.  It seemed like I'd just put the chain and sprockets on and I wasn't ready to take the $$$ hit so soon.

Product Review: SJ7000/DV603D Action Camera

Action Camera Review

I don't usually do camera reviews because I favor the lower end action cameras that aren't user friendly.  As long as it can take jello free video onboard my bike and look decent on YouTube, I like it.  If it costs less than $75, I love it!
