The Last F8 Video Had a Sad Ending...

This one is considerably more fun even though we almost lost a DRZ.

It's long...so here are some of my favorite parts
1:10 I fall down
2:33 We nearly lose a DRZ
9:20 FYYFF and you're tire threads...this dude is on a motard
11:20 We get moving at a pretty good pace while Chris films
13:45 "What an amazingly beautiful day" from the guy on the DRZ



Lost Creek on a F800GS from James Dixson on Vimeo.

Taylor, Chris, a couple of www.advrider.com friends and I went out and rode Lost Creek area on Sunday. We got off to a bad start on one of the low water bridges Charrette Creek Road and had to recover the DRZ. We later made up for it on some real creek crossings without those pesky low water bridges...enjoy.

Nice video--what are you shooting that with? Riding across water moving that fast always makes me pucker up. At least that DRZ got nice and clean.

Nice soundtrack.

The older 720 version of the ContourHD. I rewired the mic so it was in the helmet and not on the camera.... http://vimeo.com/20519049

I started listening to zeppelin when my dad got the first record back in the day...it sticks with you.

Nice !

I miss that part of the country this time of year... was just thinking about how the bass fishing season is starting in Arkansas.
Those slabs are slicker than snot (or ice), glad you all made it out unharmed.

Thanks for taking me back.

I was pretty sure we were going to have to take a roundel of the f8 and call roadside assistance.

What is the name of the album so I can look for the MP3 (or FLAC) version.
Great motivational riding music. I can see pumping that into my helmet while riding.

It's the live version from How the West Was Won. I believe it's the 2nd version of Dazed and Confused on the 3 disk set.

The BBC Sessions are also excellent.

I felt the knot is my stomach when the f800 went down.
My buddy lost his first one in a flood on the street.

Then when the Z almost went over the edge I was .
In all my years of off road riding I never got comfortable with water crossings. I never drowned out but once did get washed down stream around 50' on a XR600
