    Default Hope this is okay here.

    Good afternoon chaps and chapettes.
    Having been on the road on my bike now for a little over a week, I decided to start a second YouTube channel, all relating to my biking adventures.
    I've just uploaded the first video and would really appreciate some feedback.
    I know it might be a bit long and boring, but for a first attempt, I thought it was worth a try anyway.
    Saw a nice Unimog and an old Triumph to boot.
    My ramblings sometimes end a bit abruptly and I know I say 'ermmm' a bit much, that's a combination of trying to think of things to say coupled with concentrating on the road
    But still, I would really appreciate feedback and some subscribers, it just helps kickstart the channel a bit and hopefully it can get up to 10k views total reasonably quickly so it can be reviewed for monetising, so if you should feel inclined to subscribe, lke, share etc... I'd be eternally grateful
    As time goes on and I get my license and go on further trips, there should be some better footage to come.

    Here's another video... I feel this one is a bit more fluid and overall better, please let me know what you think though, it's highly appreciated.
    I'm also really just not used to talking to myself lol, so that will get better too.

    A few have said the same lol, I'm not used to talking to myself/viewers really yet... I was always a bit awkward when making RC related videos on the bench lol.
    Hopefully things will improve and my flow will improve.
    Also hoping to go to a classic bike hill climb event on the 24th Sep, so fingers crossed for some good footage

    Cheers chaps... Looking for a trail/enduro bike at the moment, that will be my winter rider I think, keep away from the roads and idiot car drivers.
    One nearly had me off yesterday, trying to push me into the side, doing 40 in a 40 zone and he wasn't happy.
    Until I looked at him and pointed, then the horse blinkers came on, I think he just about ***** himself lol... People seem to get quite the shock when a learner doesn't pander to bullies!
    Really annoyingly, the bloody camera was pointing at my tank had it off a few days ago to do some RC filming and hadn't put it back at the right angle.

    Latest installment from my channel.
    Hope you're enjoying watching so far.
    Hope to have some more exciting/interesting content in the near future.
    For anyone with a YouTube account, please can you try the link in the description.
    It should subscribe you to the channel, you can feel free to un-subscribe, it's not some kind of devious way to get subscribers, I just can't subscribe to myself and need to know if it's working or not.
    So if someone could and then possibly comment to let me know, I'd really appreciate it!

    Here we go chaps, another installment... I'm going to attempt to upload every Wednesday, just to keep it a bit*managable, I just need to remember.
    After this, the videos improve, a bit more talking and interaction... It's just taken me a few weeks to get used to talking to myself (like I'm talking to another person/persons) and so I know they haven't been the most exciting videos, but I really do hope to improve on them... I'd really appreciate some feedback and ideas.

    lol dan, you need a second bike mate, get yourself a trail bike as well , especially as you live where you do,
    it would be a great way to get to some harder to reach places, and also now that I think your getting back into photography as well,
    you'd get some great pics if you travelled further off road ,

    I want to mate, but in the back of my mind, I know I should wait.
    If I buy a second bike now, it's soon going to chew through my savings.
    Where as if I wait until I'm on a bigger bike, the money that I get from selling the YBR will go towards a budget friendly trail bike
    Then I have my big bike and a trail bike, jobs a good'un!
    Who knows, if I ever become YouTube famous I'll just buy one LOL!

    Out for a ride to the camera shop, I managed to drop one of my lenses in our boating lake, which is never a good idea with DSLR glass!
    Unfortunately, we struck out at the shop, they didn't have anything of what I wanted.
    But a wet day turned into a bit of a nicer one, so I hope you enjoy the video.
    It's taken me a while to get used to talking to myself, not only that, but being brand new on the road poses it's own problems with concentration, I feel this one is starting to get better than my previous uploads though and I know my next ones are also better.
    I'd really appreciate some new subscribers
