Two days ago I got my 2006 Yamaha XT 225 motorcycle out for the first ride of 2012 (March 30).  Posted some pictures that day, post > here.  Well all so that day I took along my GoPro.  While I only went on a short ride since I didn’t dress right for the weather.  It was about 2 degrees Celsius.  Think I came up with an interesting video.  Give it a watch, let me know what you think.  Like past videos uploaded it to YouTube and Vimeo.  The song used is Pumped Up Kicks by Foster The People (Butch Clancy Remix).  You can hear/download it > here.

First Ride Of 2012

It felt good to get my 2006 Yamaha XT 225 motorcycle out for the first ride of 2012 (March 30).   The weather wasn’t too bad.  A bit cold, around 2c.  The sky was blue but most important there was no wind.  The bike fired up the first shot.  A little over a week ago we had some crazy weather for two days.  It was around 20c.  Lots of motorcycles were out those days.  Wanted to get mine out but knew better.  The following days the weather was super cold.  Think spring is here now (fingers crossed).  Looking forward to getting out for my rides and taking it to work.   As well as the pictures (below) took some video as well.  Not sure it turned out.  Only went for a short ride because I got cold.  Will see what can be done with the footage.
