Southern VT for Thanksgiving

I took myself, my 11 yr old and hit the road from Brooklyn NY to Southern VT, Brattleboro/Marlboro area for a week-end. With a KTM EXC-R 530 for me and a KLX 140L for him. Starting to upload some videos done with a Countour HD helmet cam and reduced for youtube viewing.

To be perfectly honest - the lill' one only rode for a bit on semi-public roads, we had permits for the Pisqah State Park trails in NH - never made it - it snowed that day...

The area is covered with some great dirt roads that are very scenic - a better trip for the Columbus day than Thanksgiving - still very picturesque. I am a new dirt rider, having ridden city streets for most of my riding life - so I am not ripping it all up with full wide open throttle. It was tricky surface - from wet asphalt to soft wet clay, icy sheen and frozen ruts.

this is the first clip - highlights are the fact that I finally learned how to kick start the beast and I pick at the mysteriously disemboweled side stand - thank god for the stock rubber loop.

more to come as I edit.
warning - could produce sleepiness and boredom.
