Monthly Motovlogger Community Challenge | MCC #3

Every month GoatFather, an inspirational motovlogger, challenges the motovlogging community with a monthly challenge.

This monthly challenge was to talk about a motovlogger that has had an impact on my life and that person is Motordadcle. Motodadcle has reignited my photo bug and got out to ride at night for some night shots. Check out his channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/motordadcle

After reading the details on the contest, it seems that I missed the dead line.. Darn… And on top of that, my GoPro was recording at 720p, not 1080p…

Anyway instead of letting the video go to waste, I decided to go ahead and publish it.

Enjoy!

Not Having The Right Tools

We always want the best tools at our disposal to produce a quality product, in this case it is having the right tools to motovlog, however we don’t always have the means. This vlog post isn’t a how to, rather a self understanding of having a video standard to producing motovlogs with the tools that I have.

Life After The Super Bowl, And Dieting

This is a late post that should had went up a week or two ago. Anyway, here it is: Life After The Super Bowl, and dieting…

Girlfriend said since the festivities of the holidays and Super Bowl are now over, it is time to watch what food we eat, get on a diet, and exercise. Sigh… The life of a motovlogger ain’t easy. Let’s start the diet off with a Five Guys Burger, yum!

Rainbow Six Siege

In the late 90’s, or pre 9/11, I was introduced to the game called Rainbow Six by my uncle. This was the first game where I learned how to hack a game and edit the various stages and scenarios by determining how many enemies there would be, dictating the path that they would roam, how sensitive they are to noise and movement, and their level of difficulty. There would be many nights of little to no sleep as I would spend hours customizing scenarios then sharing and playing the scenario with the wonderful online community.  Ever since then the brand Rainbow Six has held a special places in my heart.

Fast forward to today we have the hundredth iteration to the game under the title Rainbow Six Siege. One big difference about the game is that there ain’t a story online and it is purely a PVP and PVE (scenario/terrorist hunt) game.

Taking tactics to the next level with Rainbow Six Siege Whiteboard

There are a slew of FPS games out there but what draws me to the game is that it is a much slower paced game than others, especially since each player has a single life per round. There is so much great things going for the game that I can talk about this game however what irks me is that Ubisoft servers are horrible, too many dropped matches… Check out this communication thread between my brother and the Support team.

Sigh… Below is my rant on the game, just the thought of writing about the experience is depressing. With that said, I still love Rainbow Six Siege… Odd, right?

Installing A USB Charger On A Motorcycle

Spent the day doing a quick upgrade mod to the Lil Green Monster by adding a USB charger to it. The install of the USB charger is a simple plug and play that requires simple tools (screw driver and a set of Allen wrenches) to install.

USB Charger for a motorcycle

I picked up the USB charger that is specifically designed for motorcycles, from Amazon, for a little over $13. After a simple removal of a few panels and the seat, fishing the electrical wire through the frame, and cinching everything down with zip ties, this project was completed in less than an hour.

Now I’ll be able to charge my iPhone or keep my GoPro powered on long rides thanks to this USB motorcycle charger.

Update: New Motovlog & Reckless Riding

Hey all. It’s been a minute since I had posted up a motovlog but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t been recording any content. I’m still staying busy and grinding. Below is my latest motovlog as well as other knucklehead things that I’ve been up to.

Weather in San Francisco is normally mild sitting in the mid 60’s. When the day is hot, 70 is hot for San Franciscans, I take full advantage of the day by hitting the beach.

Karl (the fog) likes to come out and play when the weather is warm. When warm and hot air mixes with the cold Pacific Ocean, the fog comes out in force and blankets the Golden Gate Bridge. I was lucky on this day as I captured a selfie of myself on the Golden Gate Bridge.

Honestly, taking a selfie while riding a motorcycle isn’t the safest or smartest thing to do. But the same can be said about riding motorcycles in general. Just use your best judgment. Ride safe folks!

Pizza Delivery

Yes! It feels that I just conquered the world with such a simple task of picking up pizza

This was my first time ever transporting something from point A to point B and I did one hell of a job. To some it may not be a big deal, but with for myself this was a huge feat that was accomplished. The reason this was an accomplishment for myself was because I gained so much confidence and trust from not messing up a simple task of transporting pizza on a motorcycle. Who knows what will be next; beer, groceries, tool box, tire, dog, and the list goes on.
