Ok, I've been silent as I'm sure many others have been regarding you videos.
But now I'd like to toss in my two cents here.
POV shots of riding are Boring. You need to cut down the POV shots to a few seconds a piece and add couple of different camera angles. It's very important to have some sort of story to your videos. A post production voice over explaining where and what your trying to relay in the video would be good.
Please just take this as a little advise from someone who has worked in the film industry ( 1st AC ) and two of my best friends are top film editors. It is not easy and its great your out there riding and documenting your rides, keep it up. We will be watching...

Nothing!

Brother in Law and his wife were in town for the past week. It has been hard to break away for any rides over the past 7 days. I got in a few hours on Thursday, a couple 15-25 mile trips to run errands during the week, but basically my riding has been dramatically curtailed. They are now in the air and on their way back to New Mexico so normal daily riding should resume tomorrow!

Can you put the videos in the NC700 Videos forum, please? https://www.nc700-forum.com/forums/nc700-videos.9/
I can, and will if that is what you want. So.... unless I interpreted that incorrectly, to watch my videos, In a few days... I will continue my bottom-of-the-barrel quest for daily production quality.... ONLY in the videos forum.

I thank anyone in advance for upping my views from say 10... to 11. That is not actually true. I have a few hundred views in total, but I am far from viral.

I will post only stills. I actually do ride and create and post same day. But I cannot promise that pace. I edited out two hours of footage today.

Went for a ride with some friends this week end.
We tried really hard to look badass. We may have failed on that point, but we had loads of fun doing it!

I now realize that on this picture, there are 3 Honda's! NC750X, CTX700 and Shadow(not sure here)!

Getting set up for the next ride. I still have 2 hours of unused video to throw into a montage. Maybe later today I will setup that channel thread under videos in the forum.

Then I will hyperlink to the hyperlink… hiding all the embedded video thumbnails. The upside is you get to link to my channel and a long list of thumbnails. Yay!!!

Yeah. So much technobabble.

Eat Sleep Ride Repeat. That is my life.

Pro rider tip of the day: The pre-ride tire wipe. Why? Because you could be riding on a nail and not know it. Maybe your plug needs trimming. Maybe you got something stuck in the grip features of your tire. Maybe your tire bulges are too far progressed and failing.

…and I added my channel: Rider of the Storm- to the nc700 videos.

I also uploaded the last two hours from yesterdays ride as a video. Sorry.. not today’s ride but yesterday. Today’s comes later.

Also: This particular video forum is not searchable from the main search page. I knew it was there because I understand internet search engines. Good luck finding my videos on this forum!

I searched “Rider storm” and your video post in the NC700 Videos forum comes up as a search result.

Interesting. And I tried nc700 videos and all the variations. Well. I guess you gotta know me real good to find the videos. Search engines are all different. Key words are critical and sometimes user specific. I made my first 10 grand making a simple word indexed database. Wow. The stuff people need. Golly.

Thank for trying. Oh. And I was at Marty Bs. The golly gosh most incredible burger ever.

You swallow and you hear a muffled mooooooo all the way down.

Did my usual "Go East on the highest road across the length of the Santa Monica mountains". Posted that map a few months ago. The camel and dromedary who live near the top of 23 say hi !
Bonus this time : sun setting behind me, pink/orange rocks in front most of the way. Temps in the 70s.
Add low traffic, fog-free ocean, and better-than-my-usual curve carving (still nowhere near the Road5 limits), and you get one world-class ride, starting less than a mile from my garage.

To make it truly perfect, they need to spend a bit of time fixing the nasty cracks on Mulholland along Malibu Creek state park...

Posted the Marty B’s video. Go check it out under videos. See a real cowboy and cowgirl riding a horse. See great suburban gods watching over all they survey. Okeeeee…. That is overselling it.
Listen to my one-of-a-kind exhaust note and see what it means to ride in an environment where people are complete Spaceballs.

Pro tip of the day. Lay out your boots like you lay out your underwear. It is another step in preparation. Degrease and remove dirt and mud from the buckles. Forget this step enough times and you will snap off a buckle in a year.

My bathroom counter has hand cream and Simple Green. Leather treatment and high speed hair clippers. I just don’t have time to get my hair cut. Eat sleep ride repeat.

But, per the thread title, what did you do to/with your NC today?

There is another thread already running for random thoughts. https://www.nc700-forum.com/threads/random-thoughts-pics-thread.15545/page-19 or you can create one for pro tip of the day, or whatever. Please help us keep posts in their appropriate thread. No need to promote or advertise your videos in this thread. People can see them as new posts in the NC Videos forum.

Thank you in advance for helping keeping the forum better organized.

I installed my battery tender pigtail and replaced the factory grips with ProGrip #714 grips. Was going to install my grip heaters but ran into the problem with the change in wiring. I have a new path to get that completed, just waiting on parts again.

Installed Rox 2" risers to get the bars up & back a bit. Did the usual relocation of the brake hose - also found that with the front wheel at full left lock, the clutch cable was pulled tight - too tight for my liking so I relocated the cable to behind the frame down tube. It seems to work alright like this, however, I'll probably order a longer cable (ctx cable works I think?) just in case...

Did my first DCT clutch initialization.
Figured it was time as the clutch plates have bedded in by now.
I'll report back next ride on the changes in shifting and clutching, if any are even noticeable.
I was noticing some chattering vibration through the footpegs below 15 kph lately when braking to a stop.

One gotcha: If you use the centre stand while doing the initialization, apply the parking brake so the rear wheel doesn't move while in neutral.
The rear wheel must not move during the process.
I used my side stand, and couldn't figure out for a bit why at the end of the process in restarting the engine why D wouldn't engage and show D in the gear display.
Duh: side stand down.
Next time I'll do the process sitting on the bike without using any stands.
