Here is a video I shot on a recent ride with another triumphrat member. The music gets loud around 1 minute. You have been officially warned

Not sure how to embed though.

And here is something a bit more low key, we were exploring the old abandoned air field at the bottom of brooklyn. No editing but its such a cool place, i have no problem watching it without cuts

79 Bonnie rebuild

Picked this up a few month ago and doing a complete rebuild but not the engine it is engine is fine.
Many parts have to be refurbished, it looks good but it was neglected for sure. Brakes pretty much junk with master cylinders and rotors are junk, fluid had not been changed since new looked like nasty fudge inside... :Eyes
Steering head bearing looked like they were at the bottom of lake Erie for 4 years. on and on.
Totally stripped down at the moment and is my winter project. Im doing a full Cafe build since it already not stock, frame mostly.

I didn't like the wind noise you'd hear with the GoPro external mic, and this was usually the reason why I'd upload a music soundtrack to the video, so a couple weeks ago, I tried wiring an external mic from under the seat just above the Scrambler Arrow exhaust using a left over boom mic from a defunct Scala Rider G9 headset. I took the bike out for a short ride to see how it would sound. I thought it turned out ok. The video quality...not so much. GoPro was mounted to the front of my Dart screen, and IMHO, vibrated too much, so I ripped the mount off and I plan on giving it another go using the GoPro "chesty" mount. Sound quality though I thought wasn't too bad and was what I was looking for.
