Ultimate Ear

Ultimate Ear

Tässäpä lyhyesti katsaus käytössäni oleviin korvatulppiin. Kyseessä on englantilaisen Ultimate Ear -yrityksen (Ultimate Ear Protection ltd) valmistamat muotoon valetut tulpat. Olen koko mp-uran aikana etsinyt aina sitä “oikeaa” tulppaa, ja kieltämättä monta euroa on mennyt jos minkäkinlaisen tulpan valmistajalle. Olen käyttänyt Eareita, joulukuusitulppia, yrittänyt itse tehdä valettuja tulppia, testannut erilaisia korvanappeja äänenvaimennuksella (aktiivinen/passiivinen) ja ilman. Varmaan on parikymmentä erilaista yritystä ollut. Olen myös ilman tulppia lyhyitä matkoja ajannut, ja se ei kyllä ole minun juttu. Alla asiaan liittyvää perustelua. Minulla…

The helmet, KLIM Krios Pro 2020

The helmet, KLIM Krios Pro 2020

Last time I changed my helmet was a few years back when I bought the Schuberth E1. It was a novel helmet and eagerly waited amongst Schuberth users. Schuberth’s answer to Dual Sport/Adventure riders. It is a modular helmet, it has a peak and a built-in sun visor. It is a great value helmet but it has also some downsides. You have to have the “Schuberth head”, more round than oval. It is heavy because of all the mechanisms and…

Vibration damper for motorcycle electronics devices

Vibration damper for motorcycle electronics devices

I used to have bikes with no significant vibration to handlebar or other parts. The engines were big and well balanced. But when I bought my thumper, KTM 690 Enduro R (my 2015), I suddenly had a problem. And a big one. How to reduce vibrations which are powerful enough to break your phone, navigator, camera or any other electrical device you attach to the handlebar or front of the bike? I know there are people without any of the…

Wintery tinkering 2019

Wintery tinkering 2019

During the long white season, there are not many travel stories to tell. And while I am not a winter driver (yet), I just do some slow maintenance work in my garage to my bikes. Last year I got a new bike to me, the KTM 690 Adventure R. I thought to broaden my riding more gravel roads and even some technical driving in single tracks and paths. There is some 20 000 km of gravel roads here in Finland. They…

Photographers reward

Photographers reward

I am an amateur/hobbyist photographer, I have always been. I have had many cameras, even camera drones, and still I have a very decent camera beside my phone camera. I have thousands of photos on my computers and cloud service. I have been interested also videos and within a few past years, I have taken some short clips when I have been doing moto traveling. I have put some photos on the online services like this web site (in my…

Ei ole helppoa

Ei ole helppoa

Edellinen sivustonisäntä, Bluehost, laskutti tulevasta vuodesta. Etukäteen. Mikäpä siinä, mutta hinta oli kyllä liian kova. Sain alkuun ns. sisäänheittohinnan, mutta nyt vuoden jälkeen hinta nousi normaalille tasolle. Päätin katsella vähän ympärilleni, ja löysinkin halvemman. Nyt sitten ollaan GreenGeeks-nimisen palveluntarjoajan hoteissa. Siirto oli yllättävän helppo, ja kaikki toimi. Jouduin heidän 24/7 chatin kanssa hieman keskustelemaan, mutta siitäkin selvittiin muutamalla sananvaihdolla. Nyt nämä sivut pyörivät kolmanneksen halvemmalla (reilut 30 € / v), joten katsellaan tässä nyt hetken. Lisäksi tällä uudella on, edeltäjäänsä…

The Raatejutaus I

The Raatejutaus I

When my friend informed me that there are still some places for the upcoming motorcycle trip/gathering, the Raatejutaus I, I was still hesitating. From the previous trips, which he has organised I learnt that there will be many participants and a tight schedule to visit and see places. Namely war historical sites and monuments. I was thinking my interests to war history overall and noticed that there might be some good opportunity to learn our history and what my ancestors…

About planning the trip

About planning the trip

It’s always the same. I am planning the trip well before. I have thoughts about the filming, doing the drone shooting, b-roll shots, landscapes and general views what I see. And when the time comes, I am on the trip and I notice I haven’t taken the drone out of its box, there’s plenty of left in the memory cards and backup disk. Am I enjoying the trip to its fullest? Am I living the trip minute to minute only…
