My V strom adventures
« on: December 27, 2020, 20:06:05 »
Hello. I was just clearing my phone of the photos,  as the storage was getting a bit low and wondered what I could  do with them. I decided to make a video clip from them. Basic editing software as I don't pay for anything if possible. The photos are synced to the music to hopefully not make it too boring. The mute button is available . :whistle:

That was fun. It must have taken an age to edit.

Well done Pete. A super collection of memories from past times and some of the places and people I've missed in 2020.
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.

Thanks Pete, some fantastic memories there. Could you find a slower song next time though as I kept missing some photo's.  :thumb: :thumb:

Makes you realise what we've missed this year, and strengthens the resolve to get out more when we're allowed.
I had to play it at half speed, though.  :old:

Yep, because the photos  were linked to the music the video was just over 5 minutes long. Slow down the beat of the music and will probably go over 10 minutes long and get boring . But point taken I will do another one at a slower pace in the coming year for the older ones on here.  :thumb:

That was enjoyable.  Some old stuff on there too, as I spotted my old strom on a few pics! I hope I can get out more next year as my mileage for this year has been woeful. I need fish and chips from the coast again...

Great collection of photos.
Captured the essence of what biking is all about and what we have missed this year.

Thank you so much for sharing Pete, that Scarborough trip was quite warm from what I remember.

The heat and fixing the Nail.....
To be happy, I don't need private helicopters,a Florida house or a yacht. I'm fine with my motorcycle,a trip to a forest in Bavaria and some lunch money.

It was very generous of you TLp to keep everyone amused on many trip's with the constant fixing/ refitting parts. My favourite was when you couldn't turn the nail off, Pateley bridge I seem to remember.  lol lol

I'd forgotten that episode and what a classic it was.  :lala: It is up there with trying to lose it's own screen and wrapping itself in black plastic on a very windy A1.

My favourite was the front brake lever parting company heading downhill into "Mansfield" at Cadwell on a trackday.  lol

Ah yes the black plastic moment, wasn't sure you would manage to pull that stunt off, literally.  lol

Just a reminder of the famous Nail and the very polite owner at that time.
