I somewhat agree with dbuck, but mostly because of the title, "Live Live with no Limit" and you speed a little on freeways and slow down when cops roll by? I don't condone wheelies or excessive speeding in any way, but the title is misleading.

Maybe some twisties with a knee down? Different camera angles? Minimal vlogging? Your current bike build listed in the description? More aggressive editing to fit the music a little more than just riding down a few streets?

I really don't want to sound like a troll here, but GoPro vids of people riding around are a penny a dozen at this point. The ones who get the most views are the ones who go out of their way to make their videos different, entertaining, engaging. Rnickeymouse (not a vlogger, I know), ARidersLife, BaronVonGrumble, ChaseOnTwoWheels, those guys are pretty big because of how much variety they have. LaurieJennifer owns the female subscriber base.

Your video just didn't stand out in any way beyond being able to say, "Heh, I recognise that road" which is lost outside of Houston.

, how did you get over 3k subscribers? I should market my youtube better. At my current rate, I won't see a dime for a year.

Here is a gopro vid + musical arrangement I made last night

My gopro slow motion testing + music arrangement I tossed together the night before:

Stabilize the camera.... too much shaking. At least stabilize the video afterwards

Do something interesting... either while filming, or during editing.

I know my commute is boring... so I sped it up. If something interesting happens, slow it/freeze frame it. At least set the pace to a song (I didn't). I sped up 1hr of footage to 4min. That's pushing people's attention span.

Use multiple cameras, or move the camera around to get different views... change views with changes in song tempo. Try some interesting angles people don't normally see.... pole attached infront of the nose... pole sticking way off the side, etc.

Yeah this ^^^, music isn't necessary to have a good video. Just riding and clean editing.

Are you planning to vlog or just riding videos?

Well thanks for sharing your video, truth is you have a lot of competition not just n mh but on youtube in general, the first minute of your video must catch the attention of your viewers, but on your case you failed to keep most people interested, i couldnt watch it past the 30 seconds into it.

Two things i would recommend, first being to improve your riding skills and show something worth watching other than going straight down the road passing cars...... secondly, change the scenary, find some roads with curves so people dont get bored. In other words, you gotta bring something worth watching that at least is on the same level compared to the rest of the videos out there!

Chevy got a new subscriber! Thanks for sharing!

howabout overlays and picture in picture? man, i need a streetbike again. it would be better than testing my cam stuff with my f250.

Boring video inside, just a warning. Like I said, I was just testing a setup to race with, but haven't made it back to a race :

buy a mic, tape inside your helmet, start a moto vlog and if the you say is funny enough or relevant enough you will profit.

Oh yeah... sound of bike is better than music. Maybe some LIGHT music in the background... but anything interesting will probably have the engine reving up or down.

The sound from my GoPro SUCKS... and I haven't found a way to fix it yet. Debating second sound recording device... but not that serious yet.

PIP and overlays help it look MUCH more professional. Even if it's just your logo/name, location, map... something. Hotnanas is AWESOME though... very pro.

Use transitions, but not just randomly. Use titles/labels. Make a "theme" with it. Use similar ones, same colors to fade in/out, same fonts... make it look cohesive.

i am far from pro. i appreciate the comment. it's just a super late night when the child is asleep hobby for me. so as I up your thread, I am only doing it to give you some free tips. No fees here!

one bit of GoPro advice that I have started to do (but haven't made it to many videos) is to play with the lens when recording. Wiping it will make it clean and can be used for a transition. I lately have been licking my camera and eating it when I am doing water activities.

For instance the transition I did at 7 seconds. I don't think I will ever get to finishing this video, but it was supposed to have a lot less of me and a lot more of my family on the lake when it is complete.


EDIT:
While I am whoring it up, here's one of my "pass of the race" vids
