Alan, your video brought back memories from a trip to your home land in 1997. I hadn't noticed your listed location but thought as I watched that this looks like some of the roads we traveled from Bangor to the Giant's Causeway and onto Bush mills. Then I saw the church at 5:39 and it looked familiar. So next step was finding a map and see what I could recall.

A group of 8 of us were traveling with our ballroom dance instructors (now Canadians whose home was in Newtonards who were back for a visit home.) They invited this group to come with them for a tour with them of their part of the world and to meet their family. They rented a van with a driver and we toured for a week; based out of Sheleven House in Bangor. One day we went south and rounded Strangford Lough. Portaferry was interedting as there had been a travel program on television here a few months before our trip which amoung many other things visited the pubs of Portaferry. It was neat seeing these places in person. The cemetery of Grey Abby was an interesting stop that day. But on another day the visit to the Ulster folk museum and the Museum of transportation will never be forgotten. Just as will a stop at Daft Eddy's, Carrickfergus Castle (and many other castles) and the day in Belfast, (complete with an unexpected Orangeman's parade) never be forgotten. Is that tree still in the center of the pub? Yes, many memories from 20 years ago brought back through your videos ...on a Silverwing, no less.

Keep the videos coming !!!

Hiya

Glad the video brought back some memories of your time in NI. The footage shows the road from Cairndhu to Glenarm. I have a number of videos still to be edited and lots more still to be taken. Here is another to have a look at.

Hi and thanks for the video. Ireland is a place I'd like to tour someday.

Some suggestions you might try. Firstly, the camera is focusing on the speedo and not the road ahead. Try to move the camera view off the clocks and more on the road with one third sky and two thirds road. That should give a better exposure and focussing... also keeps the speed police off your back.

Secondly, don't take up the option to smooth out the video with YouTube. That's what makes it look like a wobbly jelly. If your camera has built in video stabilisation, use that instead.

Personally, I'm not a fan of a 100% music soundtrack. I like to hear the engine and the wind now and again.

However, it looks like a nice route so keep it up.

PS. My own YouTube videos are under my forum username.

Mike from NS, I've done that many times, but I found to me at least an even better way, google earth, revisiting places sometimes even from the street view.

Hi there "Oldwingguy" !

I agree with you about the google street views. I use them often. A most valuable tool prior to a trip.

One day a couple of years ago, when out on my Silverwing I turned down Hatchery Lane, from the Bedford Hwy, to travel along Shore Drive to the local outdoor pool. I followed the Google Camera / Mapping car along shore drive. If you "play" with this you will see some of Bedford, Nova Scotia and with a Silverwing in the picture. Most valuable and riveting --- not to be missed ... LOL !!!! Let's see if this works.

Worked like a charm, thanks. We have been to Bangor but never to Nova Scotia, looks like we missed some nice riding.

Glad it worked.  Sheleven House in Bangor looks over a really nice marina. Some nice roads here in NS along the water's edge, like in Mr Blobby's vids;  but some that need repair.  At Peggy's Cove Lighthouse, a tourist trap not unlike Giant's Causeway, I asked a group of motorcyclists from the US how they liked our roads.  The comment was that "they keep you awake" !  This is the road that leads into the light house from the secondary road. https://www.google.ca/maps/search/peggy's+cove+lighthouse/@44.4977503,-63.9152344,3a,60y,147.57h,85.26t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1saM5euSGU8fQ8uVGst40RcQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656   Peggy's is a great destination for a short ride ... maybe 45 minutes one way from home.  I often use the Google street scapes to check out a ride destination, lessening any surprises.

And this is a link to the lighthouse web cam. http://www.novascotiawebcams.com/en/webcams/peggys-cove-lighthouse/.
