Ok...starting to go through some of the HRS of helmet cam footage from the trip. Here's the first video with a mix of pictures, Helmet footage (HD GoPro) and music. More to come when I get the time.

Make sure and select 720P HD for best picture.

I love that clip, brings back great memories. The XR is serviced and ready to go, almost, just need new tires, chain and sprockets. Looks like Craig is ready for an October adventure. Lets do it. Thanks again.

Great Ride

Tom, Allen, Craig -

You guys rock! I had an epic time with the three of you! I still laugh and smile when I see the pictures and think of our time out there! OK- except drunks at Fish Lake Hot Springs that nearly burned down my tent and kept me up all night! (The 5:30am warm-up of my XR650R made me feel a little better )

Thanks for including me with the three amigos on this trip. Really, these are three of the best guys you could ride with and it was the chance of a lifetime try to keep up with them! Each has endless patience and an unforgettable sense of humor. Each is a great riders and it would be impossible to find a better bunch to spend two weeks with off-road!

My BRP needs a new pair of shoes and a valve adjustment - other than that it is about tuned up again. Took a little time off to do some local catamaran racing but am itching to get out again. Our Northern California trails are just now losing the darn late season snow and are becoming available again - my local trips will never seem the same again!

Ok, finally starting to go through the hrs of HD Helmet Cam footage from the trip. I'll be posting a short series of videos from the trip.

Here's the first video in the series. Double click the video to watch in full screen and make sure and select 720P for the best picture.

Another Great Vid.

Couple of questions:

How did that mirror hold up, and would you buy another? Is it long enough to see around your arm/shoulder?

Over the whole trip, what kind of MPG did the 530's get?

The mirror works great! It actually works great as a mirror (a lot of the dual sport mirrors are worthless to see out of), it's bullet proof, and it folds out of the way easily. I would defiantly go that route again without a second thought. I'm running the short arm on my mirror and I can see around me just fine without having to move out of the way, I'm also pretty skinny though. If your bigger in the mid section you may want the longer arm.

Both 530's got just over 50 mpg the whole trip, that was the same results that we got with them the year before on our Oregon trip as well. They both have JD Jetting kits installed and are jetted for 3-6K ft.

Good review, I'm going to get 2 and some spares parts then for 2 bikes. I've always used the cheap ones(they always break too), but they have always been worthless to use.

50mpg, excellent, beats the hell out of my BRP MPG :(
