Take a virtual motorcycle ride around Ketchikan, AK

Published On: 2011-06-30By:

A few weeks ago I went on SQL Cruise with Kris (my wife) and a bunch of other SQL geeks.  When the ship was stopped in Ketchikan, Alaska while a bunch of people were going in the water (crazy right?) I hopped on the back of a Harley and went riding through town as part of a motorcycle tour.  Well Kris was smart enough to purchase a little high def video camera that I was able to strap to the front forks of the motorcycle so I could record the video, and here it is.  It’s hosted by Facebook as they allow for longer videos than YouTube, but it’s in three parts because they only allow 20 minute long videos.

All told the tour was about 3.5 hours long (the SD card ran out of space a little before the end), but after cutting out where we stopped to look at stuff, take pictures, etc. there is about 48 minutes of actual video of me riding around the city (the camera tipped down for about 10 minutes as well, so I cut that out as well as it wasn’t much fun to look at the front fender).  There are about 38 miles of paved road in the city, and we road for about 45 miles so we covered most of the town.
