Saturday's ride pics and video

OK, so I like this AC/DC song a whole lot but I need fast footage to apply it to a video. I somehow talk Gina and BoyLd into doing intervals so that I can get some good footage hahaha! Hey, they did it and I didn't twist any arms hahaha! I'm thinking they will both be sleeping like babies tonight! Gina and BoyLd were pumping pretty good, 21-23 mph. Gina is dead tired but I got my video bwahahaha!

Inquiring minds want to know, how do you keep the camera so steady? I would have crashed multiple times.

Riding with one hand! I have a clip where the focus is on Gina's butt. Viewed it when we got home. Gina said I was a dirty old man I was just trying to keep up with one hand and trying to aim the camera. I have a mount for the HB's but then I can't pan the camera where I like.

I put the mount on Gina's HB's today, last few miles for some footage of me on the bike at a fast pace. That didn't last long after a dog attacked us and I got into a big argument with the owner.

I can do 24 mph with one hand. Above that, I get dropped. Pretty much the reason my buds on bents drop me when I'm trying to record them. I can with the HB mount but then I'd have to stop here and there to mount and dismount. Oh well, it's a good workout.

BTW, dude Boyd in the video is over 60, had heart surgery and one eye (glass eye). Makes me laugh when friends give me excuses of why they can't ride.

Gave up smoking and drinking to stay alive and doing a good job of it !But I sure dont know how he does 70 mile rides in them cord shorts!

Make's perfect sense to me..... That's exactly where I'd focus the camera if I could talk my wife into riding.
