Today, I went for one of the first official rides after they were approved by Department of Transport. The original recording (just up the street) was of a 'walk past' but today I had the microphone mounted just to the left of the driver. It's sad to see how impatient car drivers are. At one stage more than a half dozen cars overtook us on the left where the footpath was wide enough for them to fit. (we drive on the left over here) One towing a trailer had to speed up to make it through a gap to avoid colliding with a sign. In the process he cut off the horses to get back onto the road. It's a very pleasant way to see the street, although, at 5kph, I couldn't see myself riding the 40km to Adelaide.
This is also the first recording using my new Rode NT4. It's VERY heavy
