Video - Summer 2011 - [TASF]Overkill and I spend 7 days in Colorado

Video tribute to the beauty of Colorado, and the awesomeness of seeing it on 2 wheels on a 7 day trip with your brother. Best watched with audio turned up on a good sound system, in my opinion.

Engineer Pass, Imogene Pass, Cinnamon Pass, California Pass, Corkscrew Gulch, Hurricane Pass, Owl Creek Pass, the Black Canyons, the road to Silverjack Reservoir, Montrose's 4th of July Parade , and more.


Untitled from MaverickH1 on Vimeo.


This is really my first try at a real video. Windows Movie Maker absolutely killed the quality. I will never use that program again. It took me a month to stitch the pieces of the video together, 2 months to get Movie Maker to actually save the thing. Cameras were a GoPro Hero HD, and a Samsung TL320 point and shoot still camera that also takes bad movies.

Thanks Mav. :-) Good times. Good. Times.

We try to take a one week trip every year on the bikes. I've been doing it for 3 years, we've been doing it as a brother team for 2. Not sure where next year will land us, but I know there's still a lot of Colorado to see!

Oh, oh, also... I took a KLR with a blown out shock to Colorado and then loaded it down with all of our luggage. I probably should have done a write up this year, too.

Amazing

The video was awesome. I'm sure the riding was even better.

Around 3:50, did you stop to look over the side, or did you stop to pull the seat out of your butt after almost taking the quick way down?

Badguy, I'm hoping he'll post some of the unedited clips of interesting bits at some point. That was definitely one of them. Since I had a blown out shock, that first bump sucked away my momentum... Then the second one stopped me dead. I'd been bottoming out the suspension linkage on things the whole way up, so was trying to be careful. When bike started tipping, I did the usual kick-the-foot-out move, my foot slid an inch or two on the loose stuff... When everything settled and I looked over, I was seeing the rocks I had displaced skipping down the mountain. I didn't say anything.... Then when I looked forward again (over the bike to bike communicator), "My recommendation is to stay on the left."

Mav was right behind me... we went maybe another 20 feet and he said "Tyler, I think we should turn around." "Me too, now." Turning the bikes around was a little stressful for me, but I've got long legs. Mav was skeeeeeeered. He contends I would have just gone straight over the edge, I'd like to think the instinct would have been to scramble over the bike... to hell with where the bike lands. Either way, eesh. It's hard to watch the original video in HD... Quality on that one sucks because I screwed up saving it when I edited my weiner out... took a leak further down the trail and forgot I had helmet cam on. :-)

The great part is that it was snowed in at the top anyway, and we knew it. :-) We just didn't want to go back the long way to Ouray, agh. We ended up having to do that anyway.

Yikes I'd love to see the full quality video of that climb. Seems like it would be sort of like that video of the guys on the goat trail in the Alps...

I bet the dong footage was a hell of a surprise later on
