i find em a bit boring , only one I've really watched a few of is Royal Jordinian , partly cause of the sound of his Husky and I suppose cause a lot of his stuff is filmed in London there's a fair bit going on around him which makes it a bit more interesting .

I think mine need to be more interesting for sure - funnily enough, my next one is likely to be riding through central London. To be honest I've found it harder than I thought to concentrate on what you're doing bike-wise whilst also trying to get some kind of stream of consciousness that makes sense and entertains a bit. Hopefully I'll get better with practice, though.

If you ever see interviews with people with popular shows/podcasts it's very common for them to say "I can't watch/listen to our early stuff, we were still finding our way and it's terrible". It would be unreasonable for your first attempts to be amazing.

Of course, Mike's YouTube uploads were amazing from the start, I'll give him that.

Appreciated. A bit like Gary Lineker on MOTD :thumb:

:stupid: This is true with most things. There's a mini roundabout on my commute I used to dread as I could barely get round it. Now I wonder how on earth I managed to get that wide on it! :lol:

I was talking about this earlier, actually (how the things I dreaded on my Mod 1 are almost second nature a couple of thousand miles later). Anyway, whilst Mike's comments were unnecessarily harsh ( :shock: ) I don't dispute that I have a long way to go. However, given that I'll be recording anyway (just in case of incidents) I may as well just keep going with it :thumb:

Mike probably just needs a biscuit :lol:

Also the most important piece of advice is do these things for you not others. If you enjoy doing it that's awesome, if other people enjoy it that's a bonus :thumb:

Although I appreciate the effort and the technical expertise that goes into these kind of videos , I have be honest and say that I just can't see the point . As the title states it's a guy on a bike riding competently down some unremarkable roads while talking about it . I suppose it's because I've already seen several hundred thousand miles of this stuff . The only difference being that I was watching it live while operating a motorcycle .

The latest video is good! There's a face-palm moment then a teeth dryer, then a lol at how it made it all okay.

I like them.
Bike vids without crashes are good background while doing boring jobs and LTF doesn’t have an annoying voice or awful sound quality like a lot of them. :thumb:
2018 BMW R nineT
“It’s shit. And as soon as I get home I’m going to buy one.”
That was a fellow journalist’s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. It’s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.

I get that. I like doing it, though, so I'm going to keep on making them :thumb:

I've already ordered one, Geoff. Oh, and JUST back from the TZ ride-out... more than 8 hours after setting off, so I'm cream crackered.
