Here's a quasi double track less than a mile from my home. Man do I love living and riding in West Virginia!

Cool, I'm from Huntington WV. Moved west many years ago... For my Go Pro I remove the visor on my MX Helmet and have one of there self-stick mounts on the front of the helmet. Up/down aim is critical. I delete many videos that have too much bike or too much sky. Here's one of mine:

Following the mechanics advice; riding very carefully with the fresh Scorpions ...

Man, I haven't been to Morgantown in forever. I gotta take the 990 down there and ride. There are tons of places to ride around here. Micheaux, Greenridge, Buchanon State Forest just to name a couple. We gotta hook up and trade some rides. I haven't ridden in Cacapon, even though I got my bike from the KTM dealer in Berkeley Springs! So I gotta make it there as well.

RLS was an amazing writer for sure. His travel stuff is so overshadowed by his novels, but in my opinion just as great.

I can make it from Morgantown, WV to Snow Shoe on roads like this. The trip takes about 11 hours, but it's a great trip!

BTW, your quote in your signature line from RLS is the same quote I use in my signature line on another board. I love Robert Louis Stevenson's travel writings!

Sorry but i dont find it funny. Man this could be your last video. This is not a way to drive when you are out for a ride to have some fun. I believe you should wait for him to see you more clearly. It is your responsibility to make him see you very good before you make a move.

+2. Responsibility is always with the overtaker; that's you. You were putting him under needless stress and it was a silly place to overtake.

Elias, I am a very safe rider and I am always courteous to other riders. That is a indisputable fact. Unfortunately, this gentleman is not safe and I will continue to remain on guard with such riders. I don't care to explain the facts to you. However, I can see where if that were you, you might be frightened. I apologize.
I will continue to document my rides to others in interesting and dramatic fashion, if possible. It's for effect and it makes good viewing!

Frightened? No I would have been pissed off. IMO it was a very poor place to pass. Looks like the guy you passed was on a big bike and not that comfortable on dirt. He needed the whole road at his skill level and you tried to pass just as a tree was coming up on the right.

I have done group rides. If you want to go fast you take off first when they regroup. If you don't you give the lesser riders the room they need.
