Noise

What is the thumping noise? Is it the camera rattling in its housing?

The camera is on my goggle strap and the thumping sound is the housing bouncing off the helmet.

Thanks, Refokus! Those videos are a lot of work! Editing them down to something remotely watchable is far more difficult and time consuming than what it takes to do pictures. I hope it was watchable all the way through and that it conveyed the difficulty and steepness of the terrain. Adding a soundtrack would be a lot more work and I know some people want the bike and ambient sounds. I figure this way people can pick their own soundtrack or listen to the original audio.

I kind of gave up on editing, I can never decide what to keep. Hours of great video and I never want to cut anything out. I'm glad there's someone with the patience to put the work in. I think you captured the essence of 202 very well.

I can completely understand giving up editing! Just taking out the starts and stops took my original video from 3 hrs 15 minuts down to just under 3 hours. Doing some big chops from there cut it in half, but that's still an hour and a half! There was a lot I cut because the camera was pointing toward the sun or I was getting too much flare on the lens. Some I left in because you can kind of see what's going on. I cut out a lot of good material that was just too long for me to sit through with my short attention span.

Thanks for taking the time to share the RR.
BTW great pics and videos. 17 miles of 2nd and 3rd gear single track scattered with loose rock and challenging wash/river bed gets me all warm and fuzzy inside.

Yardstick I just realized that we have crossed paths after finding your RR you did for your AK trip in 2010 at Adventure CycleWorks in Fairbanks. I actually chatted with Dillion and he gave me his card for ZEN Moto.

That's more like 1st and (rarely) 2nd gear singletrack, but the rest is accurate. It's my favorite!

Small world! We met a few travelers on that trip. Did you put up a RR for yours? I'll have to check it out.

No RR, I discovered this forum when we left for our trip to AK in 2010. I only started reading the RR's this summer and my first post/contribution was in July.


I'm on the left resembling my avatar.
Notice all the stickers and how low the Dalton Sign was in 2010. The more recent RR's reflect fewer decals and the sign has been raised significantly higher.

BTW I ride a 2 stroke 250 so I like to chug along in a higher gear so it minimizes wheel spin. The power delivery is a bit different then your big thumper.
