Four Minute Film of my ride

G'Day Guys.

Took this short film of a ride yesterday on my old bike.

I'm no Steven Speilberg and it was shot with a small 8 megapixel still camera that has a short video function. I had it attached to a folded up tripod that was strapped under the flap of my saddlebag. I was real glad when I pulled up that it was still on there!

The stock HD Fatboy Handlebars are making for a more comfortable ride after the slightly bent old buckhorns.

Hope you all have a great and safe easter. God speed and keep the shiny side up.

Great video Aussie. Just got my fairing and tins back from the painter. Putting them on today, brake bleed and then hopefully hitting the open road for a while .

G'Day Corsair thanks for that, can you post some pics when the bike is back together, I'd love to see the paintwork, escpecially the tins as that would really make her stand out. I had to bleed my front brakes when I put the wheel back on after the fork tube replacements. Ended up covering the bike in a big tarpaulin and taking the top off the master cylinder and slowly prized the pads open with a spatula.

G'Day B___S, we have them, wish I could say we didn't, especially after this summer of constant rain. I keep taking note where they are and try to stay away. A couple came to grief a few months ago, rider and pillion, both killed hitting a big one at high speed about 20 minutes east of here. Funny you mention it as I had to drop the mother in law home this afternoon who lives near here and there is a huge one at the top of her street, a total nightmare for a rider.

Congratulations Glen!!

And while I freely admit to fantasizing about watching an Australian butt (especially for 4 minutes) I'd rather hoped it would be more along the lines of a beach liberty at Perth



Ride safe

I'm sorry Springer, I know there is a big difference between our butts, as you can see hers is nowhere as nice as mine

At least she didn't need a wide angle lens to capture hers...
