Oh, I forgot to show you the video that shows the sidestand desaster and its solution in the port of Civitavecchia. Well, only to bump into the next problem ...



Enjoy!

Dirk

Dirk,
Great writing, photos and videos! The clip where you rig the side stand with the strap was so funny! "How do I get the camera?" = Oh, the problems of being a one-man producer/director/cameraman!! But as you say, the remote does not wish to stop for the bathroom or eat at a different resto than the one you find most appealing! Wonderful report and worth every second of waiting!

Thank you!
But not to be misunderstood: I was only refering to the additional functions of a human remote control because in terms of photography I may be a pain. An ordinary rc won't get bored, distracted or even hungry when I'm trying to get a good shot...
As riding companions they're just great!

Cheers

Dirk

It allows you to have a self-timer with a countdown of 99hrs, interval shots f.e. (1pic/sec), long exposure and to set the amount of frames (max 99) you like to shoot. You can of course combine the settings.

Some pictures are however created a more natural way: With a human remote control. They are sometimes called kktos, ladigodiva ... Unfortunately, most of the time they're not available when they are needed. And they offer more functions than required: Talk to you, talk to someone else, want to eat, drink, pause ...

Have a nice day!

Cheers

Dirk
I appreciate the response, Dirk. That's interesting to know. It just so happens my k-r has a built in intervalometer. I will give that a try next time! Thanks!

In the last episode our hero, Dirk, had just recovered from a nasty bout with his sidestand....but he was still in Italy. Does he sail across the sea to Africa to continue around the Med in an anti- clockwise fashion, or does he decide to go clockwise instead? Stay tuned and find out........

Hallo, Dirk?

Blader54 screwed with this post 08-09-2013 at 05:56 PM Reason: too many digital disiplays...how do you read a clock again?

Must see spots

Planning a trip to Sardinia, Sicily and Italy soon. What are the must see spots on bikes?

For Tuscany, try reading the "Riding in Tuscany" thread. Towards the end there is also a report about a trip to Sardinia. The author is away right now, so it will be a while before we can expect this excellent report to be continued.

As for Dirk, it's been a while since he posted. You may be better served with a PM to him. Also, for trip planning purposes some people find the Horizons Unlimited site helpful....although for ride reports ADVrider totally rules sans doubt.

Hi kktos,
Thanks for clarifying. That is what I meant to do in my reply to the poster but I botched it. Didn't mean to suggest that Dirk had abandoned the thread or anything...he's been very open about all of the demands on his time.

Speaking of which....you sir produce a most excellent ride report yourself! When might we expect another such?
