Here is the vid from the old road in Hickman Co. Its on the County maps but hasn't been maintained in years.....

Yea that is the one that I told you about. I really can't say what happened..... It was a shallow curve.... I think I was looking at that house..... IDK... was pretty funny...

I am going to blame it on my rear tire... Just put new shoes on the old girl.. I should be GTG next weekend.

Hey guys, looks like a good ride. its days like that that will make ya wish the rear sproket could be changed fast and easy . I know it was a hot sumbeach in them woods also. If yall keep this up all the summer, sometimes next year we will have some nice single tracks looks like. (yall lost me on that road) thats one i dont thank i have seen over there. or not since the flood anyways. Ihatefalling....yes sir, there gona tear out that bridge on leappers creek and replace them over the next few weeks. I also went under it and back up the outher bank the outher day.(works good).
I have been working on a crown vic this weekend so i didnt get in any rideing,,grrrr.

Great report guys !! keep up the good work

Too bad Hickman County is so far away from sea level NC, looks like a blast.

WP looks like he got a Klim sponsorship :)

That road was pretty kick ass, you still Rock 1 and KLR 0 ?

WP How about that KLIM gear?

I see new helmet!

I see new riding pants!

I see new gloves!

How Is The Air Flow? Can you tell a difference? Enough to make the day a longer ride?

Overall 1 to 10 ?

Also now that you have had that helmet cam for some time Would you get it again or go with the GoPro?

The Klim Gear is top notch....

The helmet on the first ride paid for itself...great air flow....even when we were down in that holler with no air at all... once we got moving you could tell a real diffrence....10 if you can get it on a deal.... mine was only $187 from Atomic-Moto.

The Mojave pants are sweet tits.... plenty of air flow keeps the boys nice and happy... 10... great price from Tellico Plains Outfitters. ( I think that is their name)

The Jersey is nice and works with the pressure suit very well but a little warm... price you pay for ATGATT......

The gloves are Mojave also... when they get worn out I will be going back to the mechanics gloves. Don't get me wrong but the gloves are lacking a little in the area of comfort. 5

The cam awesome..... as you can see in the footage is pretty darn good...
I really love the features you just gotta make sure its on... if you hit the remote you just gotta check to make sure it comes on. I missed some good footage going into the old road... I have never been too impressed with the GOPro.. You can't seen what its recording.. at least with this cam you can look at what you have recorded. I am real happy with it... It is water proof to like a half a foot.... but I don't plan to go SCUBA with it... You could dunk it with no worries.
