Hey Guys. I'm pretty new to this motovlog stuff, but heres some stuff about me and what I love to do!

- MeGustaMoto (Blake)
- Central Texas
- Right now I'm currently at home while going to college. I love to ride whenever I get the chance (which is pretty much every hour of the day). I'm a beginner rider and have a lot of room for improvement i.e downshifting. I love long walks on the beach... I don't know!
- I ride a 1995 Kawasaki Ninja 250R. Rebuilt from the ground up by my father.
- I originally started vlogging for my dad since his going away to Afghanistan so he can see what I do and stuff like that. So I thought I would start a channel since its something I've always wanted to do when I got a bike (Now I have one, thanks to my father).
- Drift HD Ghost w/Ext Mic (of course)
- No Website or blogs (maybe when I get bigger?)

And here is my youtube channel....
MeGustaMoto

Hopefully you guys enjoy what I put online! And if there's any feedback what so ever...No matter what it is.. Please don't be afraid to comment or whatever!

Welcome to the community!

Here's a free tip, USE CUSTOM THUMBNAILS!
Right now on your page I see 4 videos, and all 4 of them have the exact same image (more or less) as the thumbnail. Do your viewers a favor and make a custom thumbnail, or at least find an interesting frame in the video to use as your thumbnail. I see you know how to add text to your video already so creating a custom thumbnail, or using print screen to find that exact moment of awesome you want to use to represent your video wont be hard for you to do.

Your vids get better the more you make, so I'll let you get the hang of things before offering any other feedback. Again, welcome, and hopefully your dad likes your vids!

What part of 'Central Texas'? That's a pretty large area..

I'll give you a tip right off the bat. Long videos don't get as many views, or as much interaction. I don't mean to offend, but a 28 minute motovlog better have some pretty epic shit in it, or else it's going to end up being pretty boring. 4-7 minutes is usually about as far as people really want to pay attention for.

Hah, small world. I spent most of the last decade in San Marcos. I could definitely go for another trip to the Magnolia Cafe, or the Salt Lick..
