Cherohala Skyway Video-In The Mood

Here's a video of my ride home from the Return to Ironhorse rally, Oct. 28-30, 2005.
http://media.putfile.com/Cherohala-Skyway-In-The-Mood

My first attempt at movie making.

I'm "in the mood" to return.

Cool

Good selection of background music..

Question: Was the LT made for the Skyway or was the Skyway build for the LT?

Still some snow at mile marker 10 and 11 I see...

Take care, Happy Holidays...

Thumbs down Nice Video What Camera?

Nice video with no visible camera shake. What kind of setup/mounting/camera system are you using?

Joe,
It's a Sony miniDV digital camcorder model DCR-TRV22. I bought 2 years ago. It's got SteadyShot technology that really eliminates the shakes. The setup is a camera mount from RAM mounts. There is a link to them on the accessories page . Raffy is a dealer too, I think

Nice job...did you dub the music in later, or was it playing through your speakers at the time?

Doug, any way you could post a picture of what the camera & mount looks like when it's installed on the bike? What software did you use to splice in the audio?

Bob, I used Microsoft Moviemaker to put it together. I'm working on getting a photo of the setup. Give me til tomorrow night, I should have one by then, hopefully.

Camera setup

Here are some shots of the setup.

I made a safety strap with some nylon and velcro, just in case the mount ever failed.

The only thing I would change is to use a longer arm because the camera blocks some of your view of the left mirror or use the clutch reservoir cover base instead of the base that I have.

By the way, I looked at the RAM mount website and could not find the base that I'm using anymore. They may still sell it. I just couldn't find it.

Doug,

I just caught your video. Man I sat at my PC with a giant smile from ear to ear watching it! Great footage and music. If it wasn't 11pm right now I'd jump on my LT and go for a ride up the North GA mountains...

Thanks for the ride,
Marc
