Mike, Bob, where we stopped on El Oso Rd. we should have kept going where it looped back - check out the GPS track, there's miles more of exploring to do.. next time.
Ya, it looks like we gave up too early on the Mazatzal Divide Trail..dead ends but so does El Oso...next time.

This one deserves a post


Jay, did you make it back in time?

Looks like an excellent day out riding guys.

Wish I could have joined you guys but I was with the kid today. Some of you know that he's a Hip Hop dancer and today we were at the US Airways arena at the try outs for the Suns Dance kids. They come out and dance on the court during time outs and at halftime.



18 chosen from this group.



He made the squad.

On the way to the kid's audition today I see this guy going relatively slow on the I-10. As I'm passing him my wife says "He's fuckin' texting!"

She snapped a pic.





Safety Seventh!

Thanks, I actually only stabilized some of the shots in post (Warp Stabilizer in Premiere), mostly those facing backwards when the vibrations are most visible. I avoid youtube stabilization, it makes the whole video look pretty wonky and it messes up subtitles etc.

But funny you should ask, I just went looking for something to help get rid of the vibrations and "jello" in the first place, the drone guys deal with the same issue so there are solutions out there. This seems to be the most promising one, I've contacted the seller and will give it a go once I figure out exactly how to make the mount work for me.

Anyone interested in a 1995 GPZ1100?



It only has 22k miles. The bike was stored in a shed in upstate NY for a lot of years and my buddy Steve bought it to have out here for riding street. He's an excellent mechanic and went over every bolt before riding it out here. The bike is rock solid. I use it as a backup bike but he's bringing his VFR down here now so there's no use for the GPZ anymore. Let me know if anyone here is interested before I take it to CL.
