Back in the saddle

After a massive retina detachment in July of 2021, the rest of the year was pretty somber as far as riding goes. No riding for 6-7 months. Eye is back to almost normal, with some different correction that worked extremely good. Having a very talented eye surgeon helped as well. Can’t thank the surgeons and nurses at Carolina Eye Associates enough for what they did. Outstanding.

BMW S1000XR 

She didn’t complain at all when I took her out to stretch her legs. Awesome bike.

Microphone test with GoPro Hero 6

Trying out a new mike for a GoPro Hero 6 (I know, I need a Hero 9). Have tried a few different mikes, and all of them distort (clips) the input into the camera at higher speeds. This mike will probably be a keeper (Giant Squid lapel mike). Sounds pretty good, even at higher speeds, without any cracking or distortion. It’s a keeper.

2021 OH-Stoc – Shawnee State Park, OH

Left the house in SC at 6am. Interstate all the way for 460 miles. Raining off an on. Arrived around 2PM, and set up camp at Shawnee State Park campground.

Shawnee State Park, OH

Went for a group ride Friday. Very nice roads in Southern OH. The rain just would not quit.

Group Ride again Saturday. Nice weather. Shot some video with my GoPro Hero 6. We had around 15 riders in the group, using the “drop and sweep” system, which works very good.

 

Great weekend.Met a lot of old friends, along with a few new ones as well.

Returned home Sunday 6/13.
