Apparently Al and I swapped bodies for a short while today.

Re-posted video since we switched pages so fast.

That looks like big hit, glad you OK Al!

We didn't just explore ruins, Maat led me on some fast roads where I practiced some falling, posted my vid on the Big Bike thread. There are few more, have not completely processed the footage, I'm using Contour's software and it's a PITA to clip and upload.

we had a variety of obstacles from wet leaves in the forest to some deep water on the gas line

Sorry if I'm screwing everyone up. You guys make a new thread for small bikes and I bring the 990. It was a blast and quite challenging for me. I'm happy that I kept the rubber side down. I could have probably done the last section with you guys but Lester was really ready to go. I did what any friend would do and ride back with him.

Rob, Lester, or anyone else willing to take big bikes on small bike rides.. you are more than welcome to come along! I love seeing bigger bikes being ridden beyond their design expectations!

As for me.. I am fine, nothing fractured (I'm fairly positive) but I'll have some good bruises for sure.. My crash was in the first ten minutes on the dirt when I was just playing around. My right hand and right leg both got caught up in bike parts so the rest of the ride I had limited use of my right side.. It made for an interesting ride at least...

Mrt10x. Thanks again for bringing down that starter relay/solenoid.. It made all the difference for me today!

MatPoc.. if you are using a PC I have a cracked version of Cyberlink PowerDirector I could send you.. The Contour software is crap...

Rob.. Did you catch the homage to you at the end of my video?

Al, I got Mac, few of them, all Intel based but none are newer than 2 years old, was told that I can edit HD using iMovie and it works with my camcorder (some fancy AVCHD thing I bought when the kid was born) but I can't get the Contour video in to iMovie...

anyway, I need to learn how to ride before the video editing, although both can be done concurrently, especially in winter.


I need to get a truck, trailer or something, friend of mine is out of town most of the winter on business and he offered his EXC 525, he even told me it's OK to crash it! ... but I got to pick it up in Northampton, it's plated but I don't want to take it for a 100 mile highway ride or slab it back and fourth to Pachaug this winter.

I can probably throw a hitch on my Accord? IIRC p-funk towing with a Jetta?

hmmmm.... iMovie only gave me an upload of 360p.

Some really fast riding today. I was a little too far back to get a good view of MATPOCs second bath but I give his dismount a 9.8.

You pay for gas, I'll ride up with ya in my truck. Nice KTM/ Ducati dealer up there. That's where I bought the 990.

Al - I hope you heal quickly! Thanks again for setting up a great day of riding! The video you posted is a freightful reminder of the risks we take as riders. It is nice to have a great - small community of riders that truly care.

I'll post my video in a few days...

-Shawn

It was a pretty good hit mostly since it was SO straight on..
I guess I'll have to take responsibility for that Al. Sorry! Obviously, if your're following me you don't have enough speed to maintain proper controll. Heal quick.

Save the clips using Contours Storyteller software and then Import them into iMovie to edit.
