You cheater! But me likes the results.

I knew you were up to something....your pics always look flashy.

Vid

Here's a tiny bit of video from Sunday. I had mounted my GoPro on my RC airplane on Saturday for test #2 & had to change the setting to record upside down.......and of course I ended up recording all my riding vid upside down as well. I can fix it but it takes time on my slow ass PC.








....and here's the newest RC plane video test. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a48YLoxMsg4

Dr650

Hey I'm up by Willow International and I am putting an old DR650 back together. Are there any other DR riders out by me?

my poor bike

Well I finally took the head off my XR650R and found that indeed it was warn out. Valve job, new piston and rings and she should be good to go.

It is a 2001 with I have no idea how many miles, 40k plus I would have to guess and this is the first time it has been apart. Not bad I would say. Hopefully I will get another 40k out of it. I should be back at it in a week or two.

Nice video JP>

I don't discriminate. What kind of riding do you like to do?

Dirt, as little street as possible. Favor the desert more than the hills but thats only because I fall down less in the desert!

Im on Teague and Clovis.

Very cool, looks like fun. What plane are you using? Did it cost much? Did you have to mod the motor or anything to have enough oomph to lift the gopro? I haven't flown rc since high school but wouldn't mind giving it a shot.

thats a great vid!

But you guys can stick to your DRs & BRPs, I'll stick to my KTMs.

Remember it's 90% rider and 10% bike.

Ok, I said in my last post that we worked with the niece on a photo project, and I post the results. Here goes:



We thought we'd have a little fun with my sister and brother in law, so when we got back into text range we sent some photos (too bad we didn't have the GIF created yet) and told them that the new boots were great, but not really needed now that the leg wasn't working. We're awesome aunts and uncles. There is some debate as to how awesome we are as brothers and sister in laws.

Oh, and on another subject, JPaccassi, I blatently stole some of your pics for use in our own ride report thread, Hesaid/Shesaid's Daytripping Thread to Fortune and Glory! Shesaid has been on me about not stopping for, or taking enough pictures, and how we didn't even have pictures of her "scary bridge" or the river even. So I provided some. Thanks, I owe you a beer.
