The Lenten holiday gave me ample time to personally customized both T2 (my trike) and Sean Kirk’s trike! Two birds in one stone! Not only that it saves me money for not bringing it to a welding shop, but at the same time got the privilege to practice my rusty welding skills haha!

What I did was I’ve adjusted my seat bracket 6 inches backwards and added length to the original Huffy Slider axle of Sean Kirk’s trike to make it similar with my axle’s size. 😀

Oh by the way, Kudos to my 78 year old mom, she’s my photographer for this session, and boy was she great! Thanks mama! Love you! 😀

 

DIY GoPro Bobber

Why the need for a GoPro Bobber?

Basically you need it for your camera safety when using your camera on water. Particularly at sea, because without it, your GoPro will easily submerged like a stone. So a bobber will save it, much more if the color is bright, you could easily see it even when its dark. It’s also a floating device, and you can shoot photos/videos underwater hands free! Isn’t that amazing!

That’s why for my DIY Bobber project, I choose the Mountain Dew 400ml plastic bottle because of its green fluorescent color.

Other materials needed

hammer
1 pc concrete nail size 4 inch
1 GoPro orig or generic Tripod Mount
1 set of 1/8th bolt & nut
(but in my case, I’ve used the bolt from my wreck tripod mount)
Silicon sealer
Mountain Dew 400ml flourescent platic bottle
(or any plastic bottle na mahanap nyo, yan kase Mountain Dew bottle na yan eh very rare na kse ginagawang palamuti rin sa mga jeep, sa kariton, sa bike, etc..)
Yan nga gamit ko, nakita ko lang naka display sa isang store, nilambing ko lang yung tindera kaya binenta sa akin hehe)

Procedure (very basic, even a 10 year old can do it)

Hammer half the length of the nail on the center of the cap to make a hole.
Move the nail in circular motion just to enlarge the hole a little bigger
Insert the 1/8th bolt and nut in between the cap
Place the tripod mount on bolt on the top of the cap
Cover the bolt and nut underneath the cap with silicon. Have it dry for while
Fit the cap on the bottle and place your GoPro camera
Finish! You now have a personalized GoPro Bobber and have save yourself some money.

 

Enjoy your water activity with your personalized GoPro bobber! 😀

Tribute to Ozzy

My daily companion for almost 4 years, sa hirap at sarap, sa office at galaan, sa simple errands and most of all sa ADVENTURES! Walang iba kundi si Ozzy (my Yamaha Mio) scooter.

OZZY TRIVIA:

Q. Why I named her/him Ozzy?

A. I got the idea from the plate number. OZ-4291

Q. Why Pink? Do I like pink? Am I a fan of Hello Kitty? lol 😀

A. The scooter was originally intended for my friend’s wife. Fortunately, my friend’s wife doesn’t want to drive one, she only wants to be a pillion. That’s why my friend sold it to me bcoz my scooter Miah, also a Yamaha Mio, was bikenapped, and I really needed a ride! I really don’t like pink haha!

Never akong nagkaroon ng sira sa daan, yun nga lang naging suki ako ng vulcanizing kase hindi tubeless tires ang gamit ko haha! But engine wise and performance wise, the best si Ozzy ko! Nabili ko sya na naka setup na ng 54mm block, but mas prefer ko pa rin yung stock since viajero ako, so wala pang 1 year binalik ko na sya sa stock which is happy naman ako sa speed and tipid nya sa gas. You wouldn’t believe it pero she only gulped a remarkable 1 liter per 50 km!  Winner talaga lalo na pag long distance travel, mas lalo syang matipid! Its not a trade secret naman kung bakit ito matipid. Palit na kase yung gearing nya nung nabili ko sya, tapos ako naman pinasakal ko din yung carb by replacing the jettings (sorry I forgot the number hehe). But still kahit stock sya, it can reach a top speed of 120kph. Baka sabihin nyo kuwento lang. You can watch the video here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMz5eSZsfPI

I sold Ozzy last January kase na-offer-an ng mejo magandang presyo, ok lang naman since kilala ko naman yung nakabili at alam kong aalagaan din sya katulad ng pag-aalaga ko sa kanya.

And now my simple tribute to Ozzy! Sensya na po konti lang photos namin :MRGRIN:
