Davids Blog Entries

all my bikes

My Blog is a personal dairy, more often than not about my failings, rather than my sucess.  I am self taught and am not professionally trained in any of the techniques that I use. Take that as a friendly warning. 

This blog is not to be viewed as anything more than the ramblings of a half witt. Over the years I've learnt the hard way. None of my tools except for a few specialist service tools are anything special, or expensive. My pillar drill came from Macine mart, and my Grinders and hand tools from the like of Toolstation and Screwfix, my welder from Ebay, and my poor is heredetry. You couldn't make this up could you?

Why Can't I see your latest blogs?

Well its all about a little bit of personal security. Along with my Shotguns of course. I fill my blog out daily, and as such often talk about what I'll be doing the following day or where I am riding.

I block the current and one previous month to provide myself and my crazy friends some degree of security. Not everyone on the Internet is friendly, or reads about motorcycling to join in and contribute to this wonderful hobby. 

I Have a Question, How Do I Contact You ?

I welcome correspondence, I try to answer the same day. Please use the contact form on the left of this page. 

I have seen your Videos, what do you use to create / film them ?

I use GoPro Cameras, I'm foprtunate to own several. When filming my favourite or most commonly used mount is the chest mount.  When editing videos I use a Mac computer, generally but not always using Adobe Premere Pro. I create bespoke overlays in Adobe PhotoShop. 

Camera Settings

I record at 1080p and always with a minimum frame rate of 60

I use branded class 10 cards, and I format them once used on the GoPro cameras not the computer. 

Editing

Common theme here, I have no formal training in video editing. Adobe Premiere Pro. Certainly not cheap, but simply the best.

Hardware

Quad processor i7. Twin Cinema screen, and this does when coupled with an OSX operating system chews through my video editing.
