Mice Ride

Sorry I cannot share the typical crash and die click bate, 
this is just some more riding footage of me not having accidents. 
Along with a little footage of my Barn Owl. 
I am interested in how many "Near misses" people count here. 
I left one in where I was surprised when a car took a gap on a roundabout,
How many can you count? If not then I hope you enjoy the ride.

Lego Technic RC weight steered Motorcycle

So I set Jayne a challenge, could she build a Lego Technics motorcycle that would demonstrate how motorcycle physics works and could be made to corner via weight transfer but also demonstrate stability. Well here it is. Note that the only steering effect is the transfer of weight. The self stability os maintained by the caster effect of the front wheel and forward momentum. The recording was done on the first attempt as we tried out the 4th prototype. No balancing skills, just physics.

A little lighthearted sidetrack for Star Wars fans. 
A repurposed model of Virgin Mother Mary, transformed into Ventress, one of the Nightsisters, aligned with the Sith.

The original model came with a tacky led plastic flickering nightlight, Jayne decided to do a little better, the video was to capture the flickering of the Sith holocron.

Single track to Cheddar

More boring footage of us not having accidents.

This time taking to the single track country lanes near where we live due to a road being blocked.

Includes us riding up Cheddar Gorge, a beautiful natural valley cut into the Mendip hills in South West England.

I use these clips when discussing training points, I welcome discussions on all the videos I share and leave little "breadcrumbs" in order to discuss finer points.

Some more local riding observations - Aug19

Impatience and rogue dogs, a few more local observations from my travels.

Yes I did say a naughty word and hindsight is great.
