Snapped this awesome wide angle pic of Kentucky Speedway tonight! Took some other short videos and snapped a few fun pics. This is all for tonight, more coming tomorrow when it’s not so late and I’m not so tired!

Custom tube doors – Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ

These are my custom tube doors I built for my Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ. The material is square tubing from some old industrial carts I picked up. They already had a few hinges on them that I reworked to use for the doors in the factory hinge locations and there were already a couple 90 degree bends in the square tubing from some pieces of the cage, I was able to tweak the bends a bit and make them fit my door frames. Then welded them up, added some cross braces and gussets in the bottom corner of each for added support and a finishing touch. I used gate latches to lock the doors in place. Simple yet effective design. I’ve received a lot of compliments on these and I’m very happy with how they turned out. They’re a lot of fun to drive and wheel with.

Combat Barbie – Dude Date 2014

So after Dude Date 2014 I found that I had enough footage of Barbie to put together this short clip of her doing some riding at various points of the day. This girl has got mad skills on a 50 and a big bike. Yes you read that right, she also rides a Kawasaki 636 fully setup for stunt riding! Watch her kill it on her 50 and check her out on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/CombatBarbieStunts  An awesome rider to film and hope I get to do so again in the future!

POV Lightning Run – Kentucky Kingdom’s new roller coaster!

I got to ride this coaster a week before the park actually opened back up to the public. So I was first of many to get to ride it before the general public ever set foot in the park since my company picnic was held here in May, 2014. I normally am a little biased when it comes to roller coasters since I’ve ridden nearly all the coasters at Cedar Point in Sandusky, OH numerous times. Coasters like Top Thrill Dragster and Millennium Force make coasters at my local parks feel like a county fair ride. So I’ll admit, I was a bit pessimistic in thinking before I got on the ride. Once on the ride I thought the restraints were a little uncomfortable but not awful, I’ve definitely been in worse. The ride started and climbed the first hill at a pretty good pace, I was impressed. First drop, wow, it was steep and fast! More than I was truly expecting for a ride from this park! It went on at a rapid speed pulling some hard G-forces as well as some negative G’s! Turns were sharp and steep! Don’t let it’s size and short ride time fool you, this coaster is intense! Overall I was very impressed and even surprised due to my pessimistic thoughts before getting on the ride and waiting in the very long line. 2 thumbs up to Kentucky Kingdom for actually building a fun and exciting coaster, they finally did something right after all these years! If you love roller coasters, this one is worth your time! Thanks for watching!

PS: This was shot with my gopro hero 3 black edition, no mounts, just holding it (thought I might loose it a time or two). And excuse my lovely fiance’s screaming throughout the video haha!

Bowling Green Skatepark Session – January 2014

It was a rather warm day for January in Kentucky and I got to do a bit of filming at the Bowling Green Skatepark of my younger cousin Danny Dunn on his BMX bike as well as some other local riders. This was also one of my first times using my monopod for the gopro and it definitely came in handy for some of these shots. I’m really happy with the way this edit came out and I hope to do some more BMX videos in the future.

Stunting the Honda Grom at Dude Date 2014. Wheelies, stoppies, and other stunts compilation!

A handful of brand new Honda Groms showed up for the summer annual Dude Date ride in Louisville, Kentucky. I got to film some of them and see them in action for the first time since Honda released the Grom here in the United States for 2014. These little bikes look like an absolute blast to ride, not to mention they’re 100% street legal and get about 120 MPG! I hope to buy myself one of these in the near future! Enjoy!

TYLER GAUGHAN TANDEM WHEELIE – DUDE DATE 2014 – 50 MAFIA

I don’t know how he does it, this trick looks extremely hard to pull off! Tyler Gaughan, rider and owner of the 50 Mafia minibike parts and clothing company does a tandem wheelie at Dude Date 2014! Tyler manages to complete a circle wheelie or two while a willing female volunteer from the crowd sits on his shoulders! Amazing!
