Re: Clouds in my coffee

High quality drone footage summer of 2017 - The Great Continental Divide


I did not produce this aerial. It was too good to pass up though. A couple of guys from Texas road their Yamaha WR250R and a KTM 690 Enduro for a total of 5,370 over 19 days. They took a DJI Mavic drone for the aerial shots. They mostly followed the route developed by gpsKevin with a detour in Colorado to do Stony Pass and Black Bear Pass. Complete with rain storms, hail storms, crashes, and copious amounts of tire troubles.

Re: Clouds in my coffee

That road looks like the back way out of Yosemite towards Mono Lake and Nevada. Forget the name.

Those left turning cars are too common. I think the Hurt Report commissioned by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, made this telling finding:

The most common motorcycle accident involves another vehicle causing the collision by violating the right-of-way of the motorcycle at an intersection, usually by turning left in front of the oncoming motorcycle because the car driver did not see the motorcycle.



For this reason, the triangle of light on the front of motorcycle (like the far left bike) can help make one'e bike be more visible to other cars.

Only thing is....I was passing the truck..going in the same direction...
He decided to turn onto a small local road without signalling. I had been behind him for a mile or so... May have not even realised I was there.

Before starting a pass, I usually try to make sure I have the driver's attention. I will often flash my brights and watch their mirrors to make sure they are looking at me. It is no guarantee, but it helps.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: Clouds in my coffee

Yes, flashing one's light is a great idea to make the driver aware of your intentions. The bright auxiliary lights also help make the bike more prominent in the drivers rear-view mirror as well.

Interestingly, when I rode in Mexico last year, I learned that a left turn signal on the vehicle in front of you is a sign letting you know it is safe to pass. Flashing headlights while passing lets oncoming cars know what you are doing. It took a while to get accustomed to this Mexican driving habit.

Additionally, when cars traveling the opposite direction flash their headlights as they pass you, it is a warning that the police or military are up ahead. In the US, some people will still do several quick bursts with their highlights to let you know there is a radar trap coming up....

Re: Clouds in my coffee

Up around the bend



You can ponder perpetual motion,
Fix your mind on a crystal day,
Always time for a good conversation,
There's an ear for what you say
Come on the risin' wind,
We're goin' up around the bend.


- CCR
