You won't get many nods from BMW GS owners over here. Too busy pretending it's the Long Way Round.
Omg YESSS! Genrally all BMW drivers and riders are a-holes. Ironic how 1 wont indicate and the other wont nod. haha

Hmmm, should I make a defence for BMW riders?

I not to everyone.

I always indicate, even going as far as switching signal direction on roundabouts.

I give way to peds when I'm supposed to (Highway Code rule 170).

I thank cars that give way or move aside for to me.

Maybe I should change my forum username to Saint Matt?

I didn't know there was a stigma attached to BMWs :(

Kitty and I have decided to enter the Sunny Bear challenge, but as we've left it late to get involved our videos will be short and rushed; as newbies, we're not expecting to win, just looking forward to having a laugh :D

We recorded our first one on Sunday, 'n' for 'nearby', I'll edit it tonight.

Seem to remember the rules stating that we have to upload our videos in the correct order, is that right?

Btw, what's the significance of the phrase "Sunny Bear"? I've never encountered it before joining motovlog.com a few weeks ago.

yup need to be in the correct order but if you miss one you can return to it at the end. No idea regarding the significance of the phrase, sorry. I look forward to watching your videos! :)

@HippoDrone - I noticed my GoPros were losing audio too when I would try to edit with Adobe Premier Elements 15 but the files had sound when playing with another program on my computer.

Is that what you are experiencing?

Also, have you considered making the HippoDrone Bobblehead Biker as a something for sale? :D

nah, it is an issue with the GoPro Hero Five where it doesn't record audio if you use the one touch record button while running an external mic adaptor. Is a real ballbag so I have followed my own advice and reverted the firmware to an older version which worked! :)

Find a solar bear thread, the reason for that name is in the intro, sunny bear was for the northern hemisphere summer

I thought they fixed that again from a recent C2W video.

Yep I've got 4 days of English weather ahead of me, then I'll be attempting to record the remainder in one go.
try not to post them on the same day as that is against the rules and gets points deducted! :)
You can have an extra point if you get piss wet through. Offer only open to you though! None of these wissy waterproofs either.
Just so we're aware as i posted on here the same day with the two below but the rules have no mention on whether thats youtube or the forums.. :(



not noticed that, I'll adjust your score to reflect but please try to post on motovlog.com on seperate days too if possible mate ty :)
Will see what happens. Its meant to clear up by the weekend....maybe.
No worries. Im still totally confused though haha
note rule 3 :)
it makes sense but i feel it needs exaggerating as to what you're referring to where the video should be uploaded. The Forums or Youtube? I'd say Youtube personally as thats the source..

I think the rule is clear enough @2WV but to add clarity I will state it here:

post one Sunny Bear video in the Sunny Bear Challenge thread a day and the videos should be shot on different days.
