Hi guys,
 
 
I just picked up my new pearl white FZ-07 last Saturday, and I've been having an absolute blast. Just wanted to make my first post here and say hello.
 
I picked up a Sena 10C last week and it's been a great little device for recording video. Here's my introduction video with me talking while I ride around in Marin County:

I'm sure I'll be bugging you guys once I start to have more questions about gear and mods and whatnot, but in the meantime I just wanted to say Hi and invite you to subscribe to my channel if you'd like to see any more videos. 
 
Cheers,
Jane

Welcome and congrats on your new ride! I'm completely jealous of those roads too -- and impressed with the quality that came from the 10c. I may have to pick up one of those :)

@tyler Jane what is the battery life like on the Sena 10C?
It's not very good to be honest. If you keep the camera off, it's probably comparable to the 20S or the other Sena devices. But with the camera on, you only get about 2-2.5 hours of recording time. After your battery gets to about 20%, the camera automatically shuts off so that you can still use other bluetooth functions. 
So I've got a USB battery pack (Amazon Link) that I keep in my inside jacket pocket with a wire coming out my neck and going into the device. Thankfully, the 10C can operate while it's being charged. This battery probably multiplies the battery life by about 5x, maybe more, but I can't find any exact mAh specs on the 10C's battery.

Awesome video, Ive been up that area and the roads are gorgeous. especially when you see the vineyards. in reference to your comments, i share the same sentiments. definitely be patient and take your time when learning to ride, I'm a new rider too and I feel that i could've been more patient. Anyways congrats on a great bike, I have the same color.
 
Ride safe out there.

Thanks for the comments guys!
 
Quick question: Do you think I should remake my YouTube channel under a different name? My videos so far very clearly show me going over the speed limit. Not recklessly I don't think, but definitely illegal. Is this a risk worthy of remaking the channel under a fake name? I know a lot of motovloggers hide their face and license plates and don't use their real name. But I don't think my driving is as risky as theirs.
 
Thoughts?

This is my new favorite channel!
I literally spend hours watching motorcycle crashes, cager VS bike confrontations, and listen to moto-vloggers rant about one thing or another.  Your video is such a pleasant change.  And your voice!  Don't worry, you can never talk too much in these vlogs.  Keep 'em coming... Please?
I seriously doubt anybody will bother you about breaking laws on a YouTube channel.  I mean, if they wanted to go after you, they can find out who you are easy enough.  But, that's your call.

Welcome. Those roads make me jealous! Very, very nice!
 
As a new rider, you looked good out there. You seemed to know your limits pretty well. I look forward to seeing how much you improve over the next few months, as I'm sure you will. The joy you expressed says it all. You're one of us now - you're a rider. :)
 
If I might offer one tip - try to not get so close the the double yellow. It may just be the wide angle of the lens, but there were a few times you looked like you were either over it or really close to it, especially in some of the left-handers. Draw a wall straight up from it and don't even let your head cross the vertical plane - i.e. just because your bike is not over the line, doesn't mean you aren't. One of the biggest threats can be on-coming traffic, so you want to keep a bit of a buffer between you and them. Cars like to come over the line too - it's one of my biggest pet peeves and really irks me when they do it. Other than that, I'd say you did an amazing job out there, especially on roads like that.
 
I agree with the others too... The quality from the 10C is better than I expected.
 
Happy riding, keep the shiny side up and I look forward to the next vid!

I wouldn't worry about it -- I seriously doubt the police have so little to do that they would try to track you down based upon some youtube videos of going slightly over the posted speed limit. Now if you were to say, murder someone, you might not want to post that :D
 
BTW is your name really Tyler? That's actually pretty cool if it is. I'm a guy, and my name is Stacy -- so I know what it means for people to constantly get confused by my name.

There have been multiple cases of people getting nailed for going waaaaay over the speed limit or stunting in traffic because they posted video of it on social media. Just to be on the safe side, I would definitely change your YT user.
 
How are you liking your bike so far? I went out for a 5 hour ride yesterday and my ass was killing me by the time I got back, lol. Aside from that, and the top end being pretty low, I think it's a fun little ride. Kinda starting to miss the speed and power of a 3 cylinder in-line though...
