Episode 66, in which we talk to Ryan from FortNine about Canada and YouTube

My guest in Episode 66 is Ryan from FortNine. You may have heard of him if you’re a fan of motorcycle videos and watch them endlessly on YouTube like I do sometimes.

You can check out the FortNine YouTube channel, and I especially recommend the video about the Africa Twin Ryan mentions during our discussion, the tools video he breaks down as an example about how they make their videos, and their most recent video about how to spot fake gear (embedded below).  Especially if you live in Canada, don’t forget to visit the FortNine ecommerce website at fortnine.ca.

Ryan and I get into a bit of a tech discussion about the gear they use to make videos, and if you’re interested in going down that rabbit hole, you can check out information about the Panasonic Lumix GH5 and the Sony PXW-FS5. I thought about editing that out, but I changed my mind because I figure if I’m interested in it, maybe you will be too. At any rate, throw the FortNine channel a subscription and tell them Chasing the Horizon sent you.

(By the way, it sounds sometimes like I interrupt Ryan – I wasn’t being rude, there was a weird lag I tried to compensate for in editing. Sometimes it sounds like we cut each other off.)

Another thing Ryan and I discuss briefly is my seemingly constantly broken 2005 BMW R 1200 GS. If you are an MOA member and get the BMW Owners News magazine everything month, you may even be following my trials and tribulations with that bike in my regular tech column, Torque of the Matter. At long last and after much patience, I have secured a parts bike – same year, same model, it’s even the same color! I’m starting a series on breaking that motorcycle down into its component parts and invite you to check the introduction video out and subscribe to the tech video channel, Nicht Uber Max. Here’s that video, embedded for your viewing pleasure.

Please visit our sponsors – the BMW Motorcycle Owners of America and Dunlop Motorcycle Tires. I know winter is setting in for a lot of us, so this is a great time to catch up on podcasts, videos and magazines and to start planning for next year’s rides.
