Where's Big Foot, the wrench?

I am not sure where Big Foot (Mike) went. He is a good Dude, probably would have had a haul to join back up with the Cedartown store. He'll surface soon I bet.

He recently did the 10k service on my 690 so I have time.

In the mean time if something comes up, Eric at KTM World is a great Tech. Very meticulous and honest. That comes from having worked with him, personal experience.

finally got around to editing some of the video I shot when I went with BlueLightning on his south georga dual sport trip. not the best camera angles, but some of it came out well and gives you some ideas of what to expect on the loop he laid out. I am pretty sure at least one of the bridges is now out, but it was a great ride, wish we had gotten more of the rain the days before the ride, it was pretty dusty...

change the settings to 1080p and enjoy. I didn't add any music so you'll be able to view on mobile devices:

Coming down Alec Mountain Road this afternoon I looked ahead and thought to myself, "Great, there's a dog in the road."

I proceeded down the hill toward the dog and thought to myself, "Man, that's a big dog."

I got closer still to the dog and said out loud, "Shit, that's not a dog, it's a damn bear."

Scary part was the bear wasn't moving despite having a KLR rushing at it.

Luckily the high pitched squeal of KLR brake pads that need to be changed are natural bear repellent and he ran off into the corn field when I got about 40 feet from him.

Next time I probably won't be so lucky...I put new brake pads on when I got home.

I got charged by a momma bear a couple of years ago leaving the cabin early one morning for a ride.

Luckily throwing my hands up in the air and screaming like a little girl turned the bear around and she run off.

BlueLightning can answer that better than I can. I know it has part of it in there, but he would know better about the sections...

but thanks on the video. I was experimenting with some different camera angles. some worked, some didn't. will be better next time hopefully!

now to go thru a few hours of LBL200 video then a few hours of Copper Penny DS ride video. :(
