It was easy...I saw him stuck in it and I went around and pulled off if front of him. ;) I edited a bunch out. It took us about 1/2 hour to get him out. I think it took about 6 guys too. Some guy had a tow rope we finally used to all grab a hold of a yank him out.

We blocked the entrance to the hole afterwards with limbs so no one else would get snared.

GoPro mounting

With the wide angle lens a few inches of difference in mounting change the perspective a ton. I had it mounted up higher and toward the back of my helmet before but the helmet blocked 1/5 of the view and I couldn't really see the bars. I tried a chest mount too but I thought it got too much of the bike when sitting.

I'd like get 2 or 3 to run simultaneously so I could add more angles to the edited videos...mostly for when I crash spectacularly....now where did I put the extra $800 of camera fund money

You can see it here at 6:19. http://youtu.be/Dz8RW3qKm6s?t=6m19s

Now back to the regularly scheduled insults!
Aint a' English major and my editor cant review everything. Insult unintended - but feel free to assume such if its applies and is proper motivation for anyone.

If given advice, which I most often appreciate, I'll determine the merit and act accordingly. Rarely, you do get such self-evidently awful comments its unwise to accept. Ignore the dumb fuck. 'Find attempts to convince the obviously ignorant wholly unproductive. Least there's little of that here. Little.

Glad your PA ride was pleasantly uneventful.

Meef's night ride this weekend is probably the best idea I've seen yet. Have you looked at the weather forcast for this weekend?

Sat
May 26
92

Sun
May 27
94

Mon
May 28
91

Pretty much sucks to be off roading in that kind of heat...

I spent many years getting blown over by the fast guys. Early on a gent at a race came up to me and asked if I was riding the 125 that was flagging guys by during the race tp which he thanked me and moved on. If you know there is someone breathing down your neck, hold up a hand momentarily to let them know you'll be moving over asap then you won't have to worry about getting roosted as badly.

Dunno. The girlfriend and I are both off Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, which puts us out of whack with everyone elses fun 3 day weekend plans.

We are open to recommendations!

Edit:
Thinking about riding to Niagara Falls Sunday, stay the night. Riding to Frankenmuth Michigan Monday (over Lake Erie and north of Detroit), hotelling it here too. Then riding home Tuesday. They would be easy days at around 300 miles, but they'd give us destinations to spend some time.
