Mechanic Training  16th May 2011

The guys at Jack Lilley Triumph have been awesome and a huge help getting things ready. They will aslo be providing back up in case I need parts shipped out to wherever I may be, which is really good to know.

Today I spent the day with Dave Lilley, Jason, Stuart and Rob in the JL workshop with Jason doing his best to make a mechanic out of me. I learned a lot and got some great tips and advice.

Also got a chance to test the Helmet Cameras @ I’ll be taking with me to do some on bike video footage and stills. A great piece of kit.

GoPro HD Hero  8th May 2011

The Go Pro HeroI’ll be taking some video and stills kit with me so I can post stuff to this blog as I go.

My old mate Rob Hallam at Big Tank recommended the GoPro® HD Helmet HERO™ Camera for on bike stuff. It’s an amazing bit of kit, small light weight and produces great quality videos and stills. Have a look at the tests I did on my Youtube channel. These were shot with the GoPro attached to the handle bars. Quality will be even better when I get it stuck to my skid lid.
