A year ago around Christmas, I took a full day rental INT650 through Los Angeles to give it a thorough shakedown to see how much I might like it. I ended up buyinng one two weeks later. To commemorate my first ride a year later, I took my own Interceptor on the same ride, and shot a video.

I used very basic video software that was included by Microsoft (ClipChamp), so it's not fancy, and I only have one camera, but it will give you a good idea of what L.A. looks like the day after Christmas (no traffic!)

   I thoroughly enjoyed riding with you (vicariously) on your trip & it's a perfectly decent video with your "very basic" (your words) equipment. Thanks. I have to let other people get my kicks for me now contrary to what Dylan said in Like A Rolling Stone.

   That Frank Gehry building is amazing. Of course I suppose that depends on your architectural opinions about using stainless steel.
