BMW R1200C Winter Cycle Ride

Some GoPro Hero footage from a morning ride after the last big snowstorm blew through. It was a beautiful ride but very cold. Even with grip heaters I couldn't feel my fingers when I got back! I shot this with a Go Pro Hero HD camera hard mounted onto one of the luggage rails. I tried to insert some photos "in rhythm" but it didn't work. Maybe I'll try that another time. The soundtrack is Save My Soul by velkro kitty. This particular version was recorded at Time Capsule Studio in Denver, quite a long time ago.

Springtime is for PT Cruisers

Well maybe it is and maybe it isn't, but the cars are starting to show themselves after their long hibernation. I spotted this little retro-ized Chrysler PT Cruiser at Centerra just the other day. If one must have a modern car it might as well have some flair, and maybe a turbo... I had a test drive in a PT GT a few years back and I enjoyed the ride. Not a Porsche mind you, but a cool little race-about.

It smiled at me...
