Video: After Dark Street Riding in Scotland

Jan 18, 2020
by Adam McGuire  

As the long winter nights approach its far too easy to put the bike away, hunker down and keep yourself warm, In reality, late at night, it's the best time to get out and cruise the streets in peace.

Myself & Ben decided that this winter we wanted to try and film an edit during the evenings and try something different. The edit took us about 6 days over the course of December to film, lucky that the dry nights are also the coldest. We were lucky that a lot of the spots we wanted to film in Aberdeen were well lit which helped massively.


Evening rides can be some of the best rides, the streets are a lot quieter and security guards are few and far between. So grab the bike and get out there, After Dark!

 I could actually hear the car because it was coming down a cobbled road. We had half a mind to re-shoot it, but the shot looked cool so kept it.

 Quite the reason it's termed the Granite City. Slickly shot by McGuire Visuals and some smooth riding to!

 That was a nice video. Same as the first comment, reminds me of the good ol’ days puttering around downtown Vancouver with the boys. The riding was great too in that it looked effortless and was silky smooth. Good stuff.

 Cool vid! Reminds me of BITD (1990-1993) when my buddies and I would sneak out of the house at night and ride all over our town... and be back in before our parents got up for work!

 Was this on a school night?

 Some of them were school nights, but not all. It was shot over christmas, so we chose the quieter of the nights to try and film.

 Surprised that you managed to edit out all the drunk/ drug ed up idiots that hassle you on streets of Aberdeen at night!

 Haha, it wasn't too bad, though we did shoot later on at night on quieter nights to try and avoid that.
