Sometimes it gets kind of boring on long hauls across large stretches of flat land with nothing interesting to see. To make the time go by, I installed a DVD player on the handlebars so that I can watch movies.

Now, I wouldn't think of watching T.V. while riding in traffic, but being out in the middle of nowhere is different. When there is limited, if any, traffic around, I like to watch a good movie. My last long distance ride took me to southern Illinois (where I'm originally from) and the Pennyrile Parkway through Kentucky is just plain monotonous. Hours of riding along cornfield after cornfield... boring. Time to flip on the portable DVD player.

What I did was buy one of the small, inexpensive portable DVD players and Velcro it to the handlebars and it rests on the tachometer. The DVD can run off batteries but I run the power cord to the power converter and then to the accessory plug (like a cigarette lighter in a car) and just plug it in. Presto !!! It's movie time !!!

The last film I watched was a zombie movie which was so corny it was hilarious. I probably looked weird riding my motorcycle down the highway and laughing my head off. It's a lot of fun and kills a couple hours of time.

Safe riding,
