This video editing thing can get addictive:). I recently posted by first ride video on Youtube here:

https://www.accessnorton.com/Norton...video-a-ride-on-ca-hwy-150.30228/#post-472197

And now I've just put up another ride, in three parts, so I thought I should start a separate thread for future videos. Feel free to post your own here. If there is already a thread for 961 ride videos, somebody let me know where, and I'll post to that instead.

Anyhow, this ride I did with my grandson (he's running away from me on his Ducati in the beginning of Part 1) about a year ago, along an interesting route in California from inland near Thousand Oaks, to the Pacific Ocean. It runs along Weslake Blvd., a fairly smooth road, to Mulholland Hwy for a short ways, then onto Little Sycamore Canyon Rd., becoming quite rough and bumpy, then merges into Yerba Buena Rd., also quite rough, before dropping down the the Pacific Coast Hwy near Neptune's Net, a burger and seafood joint popular with Southland bikers.

That ride must have tested your suspension setup?
Those roads looked as bad as some here in NYC.

It was stimulating, to say the least. The suspension setup worked surprisingly well, though.

This is a 10 minute video showing a part of my Sunday ride yesterday, covering the part from the coast to where Decker Rd turns into Mulholland Highway, here in Southern California. This is the first time I've ridden this rode in this direction, although I've ridden it the other way several times, so I'm a little tentative in places. Still, it's a fun road, and some of you might enjoy a vicarious ride on it.

You need to get on the pipe more and hide some of that clatter. Can you put the mike closer to the exhaust ? Love the videos and the bike of course ! :)

Agreed:(. I do have a tendency to lug it down sometimes. I have to keep reminding myself to downshift more for the really tight corners and steeper climbs. And I am planning to get an external microphone so I can place it behind me. Right now, I'm using the camera's internal mikes. It has three of them, and uses software to combine all three inputs to cancel wind noise. I like that feature, but it would be nice to be able to hear the exhaust better. My original GoPro 4 didn't have a port for an external mike, but the new GoPro 8 does. I just need to order a suitable mike.

I'm also still experimenting with the different recording options (lens focal lengths, frame rates, resolution, image stabilization, etc.). My old GoPro didn't have nearly as many features, and I'm still sorting out the best setup for bike rides. I'm also working on learning to use a more advanced video editing program. I'm still using the old Windows Movie Maker for editing, and it's pretty limited. I'm planning to move on to DaVinci Resolve, which is much more powerful, but it has a bit of a learning curve. In any case, I'm having a lot of fun learning some new skills.
