I'm curious though, how did you manage all the video you recorded while on the trip? Perhaps I missed it in a previous comment, but all I caught was you'd used a GoPro Hero2, some of the settings you used as well as vibration reduction in post. Seems like you'd need a laptop + external harddrive, or lots of SD cards, and batteries always getting charged.

I imagine you don't leave the camera on for the entire duration, just on/off as needed?
I tried to have the camera on while in most of the remote locations, just in case something happened. But in a lot of cases I had to reach up and turn on the (helmet-mounted) camera when I saw something in the distance.
I ended up with a lot of short clips of tree stumps, drainage culverts, rocks, etc. that I edited out.

I carried two 32GB SD cards, and a Netbook PC with a pocket-sized 1TB USB drive to transfer clips from the cards.
I have a 12V power outlet and a short cable run into my tank bag for charging up a spare GoPro battery & phone while riding.
