A long days Welsh ride
on: September 08, 2015, 05:12:32 PM
Sunday was nice, so I thought "go for a little ride !"
A tour of South Wales and 635 miles later ???
I was knackered but had a great day. 08:00 to 23:30 mostly in the saddle.
There is not many bikes you could do that on and still be able to walk afterwards !
I'll put a link to a video of some of the day later.

I'm posting a video on utube and will put up the link when uploaded.
You will know better than me as I was just riding for the hell of it and not really caring about where I was (sad I know).
The guy I was riding with plans these things when we ride together and seems to know most of the good riding roads.

Been messing around with my Zumo and various apps.
There is one called tracks which records trips.
I have managed to convert that to an image so here goes.

This is where we went -

Like that, thanks for taking the time to put in on the forum, just a question or two, what camera do you have ? From the view, I guess this is mounted on your mirror stem? Thanks for your help.

Mechanic - The camera is a Drift HD Ghost and it is mounted with a ram u-bolt on the handlebars. I then have a 90mm ram arm to the camera mount.
This brings the camera just to the left of the mirror stem.
RAM mounts have a 1" ball that actually mounts where the mirror threads into and I am thinking of trying one as I should be able to have the camera further across to get rid of the screen in the left side of the shot.
