Thanks for the invite. With my work schedule though, (and the money situation) I really don't have time to ride anymore. All I use the bike for is commutting these days.

2.5 hours raw video, 4.5 mins of anything remotely interesting. Look through and you'll see a turkey, me passing Wynn once, some horses and a couple of crashes.

I'm done with it.

Oh hell no! I'm gonna ride the trails. Probably hit wolf den, dickey bell, dutch john and RML or Daniel as a finisher. Get up early before the hungover mofos hit the trails.

Pretty cool George, your hired as the official WARDS documentary film crew.

Lots more interesting stuff to film in Green Swamp than Holly Shelter. We have a sand pit with jumps to play on, big ditch crossing, and really tight trails to fly down. No rain so shouldn't be much mud.

Any luck on a hardwire to get away from the batteries?

Working on it. One bic pen is the right diameter, now just need to find a couple springs and make a battery box. I definitely have it figured out. I won't have it done this weekend, but should have a mount figured out.

Oh, and official camera man? No. I'm figuring out a way to spread the wealth.

4.5hrs, not long on a bike. Most of it is two lane and small towns.

Once you cross 95, it's a good ride through. The trails would be awesome on these bikes. Figure one or two fast foods, sodas, tag, and a couple tanks, maybe $34 tops? Worth the trip if given more than 36 hours notice.

I don't know, GS is an 1.5hr drive I may need to tow my bike down in case I break something.


I'm down for riding if I can't find someone to go to URE with.
