Great video   :152:

I like the voice overs.  We see so many videos with just music, it's nice to hear the rider's comments. And, BTW, the road is pronounced Why-Uh

Thank you sir! Now I know how to pronounce it! Thank You!

Another episode is uploaded and ready to go. This was our last day on the dragon. We visited Fontana dam and had a great day of riding! Next up... Barber and the races.

On a side note I used Power Director for the first time to edit this video, so I am still learning the tricks of the trade. let me know your thoughts.

Excellent video again Jerry, IMHO the picture quality is marginally improved when filming from the bike, the quality of the stills is exceptional even on full screen resolution.

I don't know  but would guess that the different editing programme is better for you to use   ?

Thanks again for sharing, I enjoyed that on another wet, cold, windy and generally miserable day here in the Province where the only thing to look forward to is going out to vote in the general election   :4:     
The world is full of good people, if you can't find one - be one

Make every second count, make every moment special.

 I absolutely love that road from the Gap to Fontana.  Next time you're up that way take US60 from Dalonega up to Suches and stay at TWO.https://twowheelsofsuches.com/

Nice video,
I am looking to buy a camera for my bike which I want to mount on the bike itself rather than my helmet.
I would be interested to know the setup you are using and whether anyone else has any ideas. I have done lots of research and everything I have looked at seems to have a lot of pros and cons.

I use two cameras to record video.
I use the Sena Pro 10C: https://www.sena.com/product/10c-pro
This is mounted to my helmet and I use it as my intercom system as well. It records video and audio and allows for me to pick up Jamie's audio as well.
We also use the GoPro Hero 7 Black: https://gopro.com/en/us/shop/cameras/hero7-black/CHDHX-701-master.html
This is the camera we use off the bike and the camera we use to face me and Jamie.

We also use the following accessories;
Dango Gripper Mount: https://www.dango-design.com/shop/gripper-mount/

I am thinking I might do a blog post on all of the tools I use for the videos.

Hope this helps
