Hey everyone,

I just wanted to let you all know that I've started a YouTube channel where I do weekly videos on my R3. I have several videos already uploaded and I post one every Wednesday. I also plan on doing product reviews in the future.

If you're interested check me out at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8k5ZBGjBMQiFJjDbGoup2A

Thanks for your support and ride safe!

Nice, I'll be sure to check back for the next ones!

One thing I would like to say though, is I noticed you live around Oshawa from the comments. You mentioned in the video lane splitting is legal...Just a heads up, it's illegal in Ontario to lane split! I live in Ottawa and this is a topic that has been brought up many times, and every time the conclusion is lane splitting is illegal in Ontario. You might get away with it, but all it takes is one cop who feels like writing you up.

Check this post out:

I had a look at a couple of your videos. Something that freaked me out a bit: the camera angle and movement indicates that it is attached to your helmet. However, when you change lanes and take corners the camera doesn't flick to the side like I've seen in other similar video blogs. It therefore appears that you do these maneuvers without checking your blind-spot. Very freaky. Perhaps I'm missing something and I don't want to be rude, but I'm concerned for the safety of all bikers and so wanted to raise this issue. Keep safe man.

Yeah, the law on lane splitting is interesting. There's nothing specific against it but like you said, the police can interpret it to be illegal and hit you with occupying two lanes, or something along the lines of that. I don't do it often, maybe a total of four or five times since I've got my bike but I always keep aware of my surroundings.

As far as shoulder checks, I do them all the time when I'm not recording. I try to keep my head as straight as I can when vlogging though so the image isn't hard to watch for viewers. Its probably a bad habit to do but I check with my eyes when I'm recording. And sometimes I edit out the shoulder checks.

Thanks! As far as my setup goes, my camera is the Hero 4 silver and my mic is the Sena SMH 10. The mirror helps a little bit but you still have to kinda move out of the way to see whats directly behind you.

Nice vlog mate! I was planning to do a vlog about the cities in the Netherlands. I can hop cities quite easily and fast though. Not sure if people are waiting for it :d

Mmm for me it would be fun to explore all the city's. For now I only have a GoPro hero 3. I have got a Cardo Scala Rider GX9. Don't know how to connect them to eachother :(
