Yep.

Original video was shot with a Hero 2 using 720p at 60fps.

For the picture I used a Nikon D90 with the 18-105mm kit lens.


I bought a Hero 3 Black edition for Christmas. I'll be doing that run again at 1080p 60fps.

just out riding



I was out riding with some buddies and really enjoyed the roads we traveled, mainly forest service roads. I had some Full Bore tires on her and she did great, except for the slimy stuff. I'm liking this off roading business!

I think I've seen this Tiger. Were you at Barbers Motorsports park last June, parked by the Triumph tent?

LED instrument lights...

red works well for the fuel and temp gauges and green for the speedo, white is best for the tach....also installed green LED's for the neutral and turn indicators and they make a noticeable improvement

After getting back to the NW from a weekend birthday trip to SoCal and assuming the weather up here was gonna turn to rain. I was pleased to wake up to sun and warm enough temps for a ride.


I made it just about this far into the Gifford Pinchott NF before the snow tracks converged too closely.... Pushing in reverse for a few yards and then a U-turn in a dry area and I was away unscathed.

Happy birthday to me.

I gotta ask. How did you make the decision between a Kalamat 800GS or the TigerXC?? I love my 955 Tiger but looking at these two to go a bit lighter in weight.
