Quick vid on riding gear for newbies


Did that cover the basics you reckon? Kept it under 5 minutes (with some careful editing).

Congrats, that's a pretty comprehensive and informative video for the beginner. The earplugs thing is always a bone of contention. I always found that wearing earplugs made me ride too fast. Sure you have to have them for long motorway journeys but now I just avoid motorway journeys! Not that there are any motorways in Adelaide.

Great video man, nice and informative . If you would have had someone else shoot you giving the info that would have make the video kick-ass. BUT I don't make a living as a producer so what do I know

Not for nothing though, great job mate!

Well lets hope some beginner riders watch it and learn something. A couple of quick points. 1. I like a clear shield. I wear sun glasses under the shield but my Arai has slots for the glasses to go through and there is no "fiddling" going on. Also what happens if you end up out at night with a tinted shield.. It has happened to me and let me tell you it SUCKS. You can always take off your sunglasses but it much more cumbersome to always carry a second shield. 2. A huge plus for winter/cold weather riding is a neck gator. It really keeps the area between your jacket and helmet nice and warm. I have no problems with riding in 20F weather when I have a neck gator. So since you are talking about cold/winter riding gear at times you might want to add that little lifesaver in there.

Otherwise great video and hope you get some good karma out of it.

PS. how the hell can I put in earplugs when I am rocking the music off my iphone.. ;)

He mentions a "Neck Tube" in the video.

Good information, but the way the camera flops around from place to place it makes me motion sick to watch it.
