Some of you will remember the ABCD photograph competition I ran some time ago. It is time to have another competition, but this time even bigger and better!
The new competition is for motorcycle videos. They can be filmed from on-board a motorcycle, they can be about anything to do with motorcycles, they can be old or they can be new.
The last competition had a short time-frame, but this one doesn’t. You have until 31st October 2013 to enter your video, so there is plenty of time. There are three categories...
1. On-board motorcycle videos. Amateur videos that include a considerable amount of material shot from on-board cameras mounted on your bike, helmet etc.
2. General motorcycle videos. Amateur videos about any aspect of motorcycles or motorcycling.
3. Professional motorcycle videos. These are made by professional film makers or videographers.
Wooley has already pointed out that entering this competition means that you have to already have a video camera, in order to win a video camera. He of course is quite right, but look at it this way – it is a chance to win ANOTHER video camera.
So, if you have a video you are already proud of, you can submit it now. If you haven’t, then start planning now to film something brilliant!
Please feel free to re-post this on your own blog, or website.
Planning to a motorcycle road trip in the US? Then you might want to read this guide.
As a Englishman who planned and then rode 21,000 miles in America on a road trip, I learnt a lot about what to consider if planning a motorcycle road trip in the US for the first time. Thinking it would be useful to others doing the same thing, I wrote about my views on this. If you are planning to visit the US from a different country and are going to ride a motorcycle while there, you might want to read my free guide giving tips and advice about planning such a trip.
Americans might find it useful as well, or you could let me know if I have missed anything.
At the end of my 21,475 mile motorcycle tour of the USA, I made a promise on my blog that I intend to keep. I said anyone that commented on my blog before the last day of the trip, would receive a free copy of my book about the tour.
That promise will be kept.
With a few things still to do, the book will be published early next year. To show my gratitude to those that encouraged me to keep writing on my blog by making comments on it, I would like to send you your free copy.
So, if you commented on my blog before the last day of my tour, sometime between now and 14th January, please let me have a postal address where I can send the book to. All you need to do is to send it to me in an email to the address in the 'Contact / Social' part of the panel on the right.
By the way, Blogger lets me know who commented, so no cheaters please!
This blog was originally started to record a five month, 21000 mile tour of the US on my Harley-Davidson. I continue to use this blog to record my own motorcycling adventures, wherever they may be, along with my thoughts and opinions about motorcycling generally.
Having devoted most of my adult life to being a ‘company man’, the transition to the next phase of my life away from the construction industry was always going to include some challenges. Planning and then making my dream trip to explore America on my Harley-Davidson proved to be the ideal vehicle for clearing my mind of old ways of thinking and being. I rode 21,475 miles, in 27 US states in four-and-a-half months.
My motorcycling trips have continued, with journeys across much of Europe, New Zealand, North Africa and Cuba.
A few years ago, I set up and now run Tour1, which takes riders on Harley-Davidson Authorised tours across Europe. See www.tour1.co.uk.
I live just north of London in the UK.
