Awesome Pics!

What camera / lens did you use?

Four of us from Ohio will be going there to ride for a week at the end of April.

Bummer about the final outcome of the weekend.

Since you two left town , and my other possible contact there also couldn't make it, I ended up going to Slickrock alone on Sunday and promptly limped out of there with an exploded bearing (cam shaft bearing, I think).
Wouldn't have happened if you'd been there; you'se my good luck charm.

Hoping Morgan can fix it.

Sorry to hear that Uli - did you have to walk the bike out?
Didn't you just check the valves last week - any chance something missed?



OHDRTRDR:

The camp shots were done with an NEX-7 with a variety of lenses - the fun fish-eye stuff being an 8mm Rokinon aspherical fish eye; the crisp stuff being a 50mm prime 1.8.



The riding shots were done with my old bullet proof point & shoot - a Panasonic TS1. Not the greatest pics but I can drop it in a lake or run over it and it keeps on working.

Yeah, I thought so as well, but Morgan thinks that misadjusting the valves can't make the camshaft bearing go BOOM. Beats me. Maybe just coincedence.

Was able to nurse it -- as much as one can NURSE a bike on Slickrock -- back to the parking lot. THAT would have sucked badly, to have to leave it half-way through the trail; way too steep to push it up those climbs.

C'mon Morgan, give me good news!!!!!

Why did you cross the straps of the Day Trippers like this?

Did you find that they were more secure this way?

looks like it would hold the hooks tighter in place against the fender.

those are great bags (I have the E-12), on my TE 310 the hooks slid back and forth a bit because my tool pack kept me from criss-crossing them like that.

that's one of my favorite spots on Poison Spider. Nice launch off the steep rock.

Did go out for a short test, my knee was trashed so I didn't want to risk it too much, have a video of the different setups while riding, need to edit it down shorter, but this is what we were testing, custom lens it still needs some refinement, but it works pretty good.

I still think you should make your lights look like boobs and your fairings look like naked lady silhouettes.

while I would find that sexist and disgusting I know others who would buy stuff like that.

I'm telling Kel about all your design suggestions, including all the really nasty ones I can't say here.

Have fun this weekend.

Does that clip into a GoPro mount? I was wondering when someone was going to do that.

Yes and the Baja Designs Sll is a direct bolt on with a few washers as spacers and the GoPro hardware.

The Sll combo is probably better then the lenses I was using, but I had to give it a try.
