Are you using a Go-Pro? If so mine came with a little rubber piece that goes between the mount and the camera arm that eliminates that chatter sounds.

Nice video BTW. You're learning that's the most important thing.

Glad you're okay. I had a similar incident a while ago that landed me in the hospital. I wasn't going much faster than you were either.

I noticed the guy who helped you out is wearing a Rukka outfit. Not only is he a helpful guy, but he has good taste too.

Thanks, and I do have the white rubber piece installed. I tightened down some bolts in my fairing and it seemed to help.

Good thing you missed that metal road side reflector..if you would have hit that with any part of your body....that would have been very bad.

That's 180, just uphill from Vogel, isn't it? That turn is very sharp. Not that I need to tell you, 180 is a tough road that clearly can bite. In the winter its worse... from all the crap they put on the road for snow.




Glad you are OK.

Thanks for the tip on the reading material, sucks that grassroots had to take a hit for me to find this. Hopefully more people will see the post and decide to pick the book up as well. My copy is downloading now.

Also, I noticed from your profile that you're from Lancaster, I grew up in York, just down the road, relatively speaking. Will be headed up that way during spring break to visit family, looking forward to riding some of the old trails that we used to hit when I was a kid.

I like the stairs clip - seemed like when you went all of the way back down and fell you look around the parking lot to see if anybody saw you.....

i finally got to watch the vid...

glad you're ok.
for some reason, right there at the end of that slide i was expecting an umpire to run out of the brush and yell "SAFE!"

i've toured around some roads between ellijay, dalohnega and helen. there are quiet a few turns like that one. combine decreasing radius with the crown of the road (and/or additional camber) and it can make for a complicated ride.

Sure glad that you're OK. Well take that dirt riding class and maybe a rider safety class. Hard to tell the speed in the video but it looked fast to me, noticed that car beep the horn at you. You got distracted with the dirt on the road. When that happens just lean and don't touch the brakes. Been there done that. IF you go down leaning it will be a low side anyway. Better to go down that way with good gear on.
