Wow it is September already. Long work hours are killing me but I have so much news to share. Shortly after my last post here I have traded in my F750GS and bought a NEW 40year Anniversary Edition BMW F850GS! Have to say 1,200 miles later I made a great choice and I so love the black and yellow. I figured I would transfer all of my addons, or upgrades as they are supposed to be the same bike. WRONG! Nothing fit and I ended up getting a new windscreen, bar risers, engine bars etc. Hopefully weather permitting I will do a new walk around video and show you all the updates.
The BDR trip did not get off the ground. If you have been listening to the Podcast I do with my friend Cody you are up to date on this subject, if not head on over to the website and check it out. All content is centered around motorcycles, traveling, camping and Adventure! Throttled Adventures Podcast
The time is just flying by here for me. I have a new job as some of you know and it has been a little crazy getting used to it. I work 10 hours for 4 days and have been putting in a half of day on Fridays as well. I basically get 4 hours each night to eat do a little realxing and get to bed and by the weekend am usually backed up on all of the things I didnt have time for during the week.
I am trying to rearrange my priorities each night to tackle more of the things I can as far as editing and things that go along with the Podcast so I have more time for Ride On Two. I am hoping the weather will break here shortly and allow me to get out and ride on a more frequent basis and do some filming. I intend to do less motovlog type videos and more this is where I went today type stuff. With the new 360 camera I will have a learning curve with the editing I am sure.
New and improved computer is inbound and should be here early next month. Hope this will help with the editing as the program tends to slow and bog on the current PC. I also have run into issues with what I wanted to do and the ability to process that in a larger file. Cutting things real small to make certain effects had me not wanting to deal with it and just edit for time instead. Oh well, hope the new PC does the trick!
What a crazy year so far. I hope everyone is well and staying healthy through this troubling time. It has been an off year for me as far as riding goes. The miles and rides have been few and far between, but the rides I have done were great.
If you have been following the channel, you know I have purchased a new bike! It has allowed me to explore more areas that were untouchable before. I am hoping that as my work schedule becomes more familiar that it will allow me to bring new and different content to the channel. I also may be able to ride later into the season and explore the area in a time many of you have not seen before.
One good thing about the Job and longer hours has been the ability to make some extra spending money, and with the pandemic the ability to save it because of travel restrictions. This has been beneficial because I have had some cash to purchase a drone as well as some camera tools to improve the content I will be putting out. With winter coming the drone footage from short rides could keep me valid through the winter this year.
As a parting thought I would like to thank you for sticking with me through this difficult year. It has been trying for everyone, and I appreciate you for being there for me! I have some new projects that should be releasing soon and I hope that you will enjoy what is to come. Please be good to each other!
