Saving my 1978 Honda CB400A "Decaf" bike from a near fatal blow -- lower gasket blowout and huge oil leak ! (like, dumped a quart+ of oil in minutes while riding fast on highway at high temps). It was inadvertently overfilled with oil (my bad) and driven too hard (twin brother's not so good) combination that killed the Beast! Work with my twin brother (a very gifted self-and-internets-taught car and motorcycle moonlighting mechanic!), I as assistant especially for the entire...

I'm about to sell, with some sadness, my 1978 Honda CB400A "Hondamatic" motorcycle. I have one last problem with it -- that's been baffling me for over a year. When I consolidated the speedometer and "idiot lights" to a svelte new cafe racer style chrome LED-based single instrument, I found that its neutral light was always on , no matter what gear. So I finally figured out a clever (if I may say so) way through research to use the "proverbial $7 part" from...

If you've never changed your motorcycle's oil, it's surprisingly easy! I step through my bike on my 2nd oil change since buying it.

The front brake of my 1978 Honda CB400A (baby cafe racer -- AKA "decaf") went almost dead. Here, we fix it in about 30 minutes -- my first time doing more than just an oil change or electronic reworkings! 8-) We assume somehow my brake fluid has deteriorated/aged from viscous fluid to closer to water (this naturally happens over time) and/or somehow has taken in air (which will sack your brakes entirely). We open my brake master cylinder, inspect, flush clean brake fluid through...

Having some fun in twisty turns in canyons in the hills near our house, with my 1978 Honda CB400a. Hunter and I were riding together -- this is footage from his helmet cam. I had just learned about 2 excellent turn techniques: (1) lift your butt up off the seat when you move into place towards hanging more off the side of the bike (instead of sliding across the seat) (2) move your head, arms, and shoulder far to the left or right of the windscreen/headlight area -- pretend like you can't see...

My 1978 honda "hondamatic" CB400A cafe racer modified bike project. The "A" is for automatic (a clutch-less 2 speed "low" and "high" geared bike), so I named her "decaf". My first/primary goal is to remove the ridiculously large/lame instrument section into a single smaller combined speedo/odometer/"idiot lights" chrome single instrument, and relocate the key/ignition. For me, this is kinda ambitious! But fun to learn and customize...

Time-lapse of 17 hours on Labor Day 2012 overlooking the San Francisco bay. Our downhill neighbor decided to remove a roughly 150 foot eucalyptus (that appeared to be dying) and it bumped our view of the Bay up amazingly. It's broken into 3 segments right now: (1) Canon SLR ~4:45am-10am (~3700 images) ==> 1728x1152 60fps h.264 .mp4 (~16 Mb/s) (2) iPhone4S ~10am-2:30pm (~4400 images) ==> 1296x968 30fps h.264 .mp4 (~10 Mb/s) (3) Canon SLR ~3:15pm-9:40pm (~4400 images) ==> 1728x1152 60fps...

Preview of how Hunter and I plan to collaborate! Audio track is new music used with permission from Hunter Lee Brown . It is his latest piece titled "My Father Didn't Know John Adams" (John Adams, a local Berkeley "minimalist" composer has a piece called "My Father Knew Charles Ives" 8-) ) This is zooming in from the house on a friday night shoot (our view isn't quite this good with the naked eye!) It is a span of about 48 minutes compressed into 19 seconds (~150x...

Things I see and hear on the prettiest part of my commute. Footage source is Motion-JPEG 640x480 30fps from Canon SD-300. I "vintaged" it (this is how I "see" the Presidio, after all) and cropped top and bottom to 16:9 ratio. What can I say -- I'm a sucker for film and the miniDV and HDV stuff isn't my bag.
