i have awsome trails to ride on out at my grandpa's farm. its right along the peace river so there are great hills and he has really good huge unused pasture land that there are good trails in. then you can go down to the river and go up it for quite a few killometers, plus all that mud!

Crikey is it only Aussies that take cameras on trail rides? Yes I do go trail riding! Watagans trailride Brad and Jeff 1.5 hours North of Sydney Australia. Jeff inspecting a Weta. A bit of a surprise as they are native to NZ but not supposed to be here!
Tough hillclimb, just a little further up the 40 degree slope turns sharply to the left and the ruts deepen to over the top of the crankcase deep and have tree roots, rocks and lots of loose stuff in them. We kept wheel-standing over the roots and dropping the bikes. Finally made it up after much kicking of flooded bikes at the bottom. Had to really attack the hill and not back off and try and keep the weight right up front. Although we heard and saw many other bikes in the area no-one else came through this trail.
Even in the bush Big Brother is watching you! (See blue sign right hand side.)

Here's some of last weekend. Only got 2 because I was busy riding the rest of the time. (removed dead pics) I'm riding up north this weekend so I'm going to try to get some cool video and pics.

Its a repost, but its the most recent stuff I have. I put together 3 videos of some helmet cam footage I got the other day out riding. The location is Jordan Creek OHV area, which is in the Tillamook State forest. It is probably 40 miles or so west of Portland Oregon off of Hwy 6. Sorry for the quality, I had to mess with the size of it when I rendered it and it lost some of the quality. Have a few nice saves that were caught on tape, I didnt crash once, but came close a couple of times. For the most part it turned out pretty good, other than not having the helmet cam pointing a little more up. Hope ya like'em. If you change the "view size" to 320 the quality is a little better.

An update... From Huntsville Ontario, courtesy of my buddy Kris who I went to visit. Here's Huntsville from their lookout hill, ah, the beauty of dual sporting.. My friend's brother Martin stuck in a dune, yes that is a Super Sherpa! Self explanatory. Found this one morning while riding some trails. Trails, not very tight here but were nice and quick. Trails again. A huge sandpit that I have some footage that'll try to get up..great fun! Sand pit again... more great fun there! (removed dead pics)

Thump! Those are some sweet trails you have and the soundtrack fit perfectly, the boys of AC/DC are gods among gods. Crap... just lost my train of thought, I hate it when that happens. Oh, yeah, your camera is mounted on the side of your helmet, right? Do you notice much extra weight wanting to move your helmet around. The guys who did the on-bike bits of Dust To Glory (if you haven't seen it you definitely should) used cameras on the side of their helmets and they gave some pretty decent resolution. What did it cost to get THX to do your sound?

You have to have the picture hosted online some where (photobucket and picturetrail are the first to that came to mind). Once it is hosted you will copy the pictures web address and then when posting a topic on the forum you will click on this button located in the tool bar above. Something similar tp this will pop up (img)(/img). You will then paste the web address (img)here(/img). Then when you click post new reply your picture will be posted.

Finally I've got some quick clips of me riding. I was out east this past weekend at Northumberland Forest, just north of Cobourg. I was actually riding with my buddy, but he was on his Specialized MTB, so he couldn't really keep up with me, but he nabbed these littles vids.

My plan is to get a helmet cam, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a decent setup that I can interchange between dirtbiking and mountain biking helmets. Enjoy!

Reply by Admin on 08/21/2007 07:08:09 AM
Enjoyed, thanks! That bike looks like it will produce a major grin factor!

Reply by b_king on 08/21/2007 10:08:03 PM
I'm disappointed that they are so short, but yes, major grin-factor indeed.

if it wasnt for the black tires. you would lose that green thing in the trees. thats a old joke about john deere tractors. since they are green, they have to make the tires black so you dont lose them in the corn field

Very nice b_king! That thing is quiet! Wish I could have gone.

Not to get off track here, but check out this post: on helmet cams I haven't had the chance to take a picture of my helmet with the cam mounted, but it uses that new plastic velcro stuff. Never had an issue with it wanting to fall off. This would make it very easy to mount between the two helmets

Video of my new XR at my favorite riding spot. Douglas County, Colorado:

b king your bike sounds like an xr!?

Reply by b_king on 02/23/2008 10:14:25 AM
Nah, XR's are more throaty because of the longer stroke. The KLX is a short stroke big bore engine so it revs a lot quicker, thus sounds a lot more electric.

Reply by ThumperTDC on 02/24/2008 2:16:41 PM
waycool30, Thats a pretty sweet video.. curious as to which program you used to make it?

Reply by waycool30 on 02/26/2008 8:43:51 PM
Hey Thumper, Thanks for the positive comment! The vid was made on my Mac using Imovie. Shot in Douglas County, Colorado. Any other Colorado folks out there?

Nothing fancy. I know I am bumping a thread from 4 years old but I figured bring this back to life as it is a sticky.
