I actually created it with Garage Band that comes standard on my Mac. Garage Band comes with a number of clips of music and I strung them together to make a 4 minute soundtrack. It's not great music, but, it was pretty simple to make, and lets me have control over the copyright of the video.

Thanks to everyone for their comments on the video!

Thumb Excellent!

You know..... its hard to convey to non-riders why we love to ride. often they picture us as a bunch of terrain-destroying hooligans. I show them pictures of places I've been & they really enjoy what they see, you know... shots of here and there.. But...... videos like this really bring out the exhilleration of the ride & the perspective only a rider would experience..

If a picture is worth a thousand words..... what is a video worth ?

Fine job... fine job indeed.

I have no IT tech skills so I really appreciate these postings.

Thank you so much, those are every fine compliments. I like to bring folks along on my rides- videos like these are my way of letting lots of people do so. I think with time these videos will be meaningful for my family too.

Chaco trip

Great report and video! A great moto friend and I went there earlier this year. We came from Canyon De Chelly and rode east across the Chuska Mtns and down Narbona Pass to Sheep Springs and then headed East towards Chaco via the dirt. It was great fun! Chaco was awesome at sunset. It is very special...Thanks for taking me there again.

I think many of us that adventure travel on motorcycles enjoy the thought that the people who built those structures were a lot like us.
Not sure about now, but you used to be able to buy a VHS/DVD of a PBS special called 'The Sun Dagger', all about the Anasazi and Chaco Canyon/Fajada Butte.

Fajada Butte is the only known archeological site that accurately tracks both the full cycle of the moon AND the sun.

I just checked and my library has a copy of this - thanks for the tip. I remember seeing it on PBS but forgot the name.

Last week I went to a lecture in Boulder given by a retired astronomer who has an interest in Archeology. He's been studying the Chaco/Chimney Rock connection for some time and showed slides demonstrating how houses and Kivas were built and situated in both places according to astronomical phenomena. The old fire tower at Chimney Rock was removed in October so the moon can again be seen from angles first used a thousand years ago.
