I got busy and didn't do a throwback on thursday. Throwback Sunday doesn't really have a nice ring to it, but this pic is awesome! Old guy shredding! From page 11 on 9-18-14.

Re: the old guys who still want to ride thread!

Hey - just curious- are you guys rolling video and then taking stills out to post as photos?

If so, how? Go pro or?  cell phone?  My cell phone seems to be pretty lame at using that way.

Some of the stills I posted were from old VHS tapes. I try to post videos when I ride now with my Iphone. I mainly post on instagram (johnu773) since I don't feel my riding is worthy of a youtube audience. Even I get bored of my tricks after doing/watching them... lol

iPhone. Screen grab.

I rarely have someone to shoot me so I have a tiny tripod that I use.

Re: the old guys who still want to ride thread!

Thanks! 

As for worthy of a youtube audience. Who would have thought videos of people unpacking everyday products would have been such a hit?

The more old guy BMX on there the better!   cool

Cool man!

Hey, did you know that the new Gopro’s have a feature where it follows you as you move? I think I heard that somewhere.

Re: the old guys who still want to ride thread!

Yeah, a friend has a camera that does that. You have a sensor on you and the camera swivels on a tri pod.

Nice pics Brett.

Yeah the one tripod that follows you is called Soloshot.  Pretty cool....

Something I've been wondering--are you guys ever afraid some tweaker is gonna run off with your gear?

I usually just roll through a spot, do a few things and roll out to somewhere else--a few minutes max.  Thought about trying to get some footage but I don't want my phone stolen!

Like to hear some thoughts of guys who have been doing this awhile cool

Re: the old guys who still want to ride thread!

I usually do the trick a few times, set up and shoot and put it away.  My phone hasn't been stolen but it was recently run over.

How far away are you planning to put the phone that someone could grab it with you being on a bike?

I've been out filming til 1-2am in world famous Ferguson off and on for the last 6 years. Most of the time im not worried. People up to no good are usually easy to spot. If its midnight and someone is just milling around, not walking in a direction with purpose, i keep a close eye on my stuff.

The other spots i ride regularly are about 15 minutes from my house in a huge  industrial/office building area. Basically no one around except me, and two cops from Friday evening until Monday morning.
