It got really good at 2:49.

I have a question, it's part of an ongoing research project I have.

Why in the fuck would anyone want to drown out the sweetest sounds in the world, the sound of a motorcycle engine, with some craptastic music?

And why would someone put some craptastic drum machine cover version of a song that's covering up the sweetest sound in the world instead of using either the original or else someone with some musical talent covering the song, like Dr. John.

Thanks for participating in the research.

Nice place to ride.

Thanks, I think Different strokes for different folks I guess. Some people can't stand watching riding videos without music (it's just too boring I guess), so I dubbed in some tunes. I don't mind either way, although longer videos without some music can get pretty monotonous to watch, IMO.

Agreed. I only made it 10 seconds into that video before I killed it. It looked like it started good, though. But music on these makes me cringe like fingernails on a chalkboard.

Went riding today on the ice with a few friends at an invitational ice ride. It was around 1 degree, but the ice was great! This is one lap of the track, I'm riding a 390

Tough crowd! Enjoyed the video - I have not been to Rabbit Valley yet, but plan to next season. Looks like perfect "Berg terrain" too. Just to deflect some fire, here are a couple of crappy videos from last year

Short clip of me going up a ledge on my FE450 in Moab.

The following video is a mix of stills and helmet cam footage, too long at 18 minutes, has craptastic music and sucks in general, but has beautiful scenery from Crested Butte and Taylor Park from last year's guy trip. A great time was had by all. If you are stuck in winter hell and truly desperate for a dirt bike fix, well, here you go. Don't say I didn't warn you

Sweet! I'll watch 30 minutes of helmet cam with just the noise of the bike and be riveted the whole time. But as soon as the music starts, it's hard for me to keep watching. But maybe I'm not the norm.

Thanks. I see them at http://www.koldkutter.com

Is there a preferred knobby for cold temps to put the screws in, and do you put one in every knob to get crazy on the ice? How fast do they fall/pull out - if they do? Thanks!

I'm thinking of setting up a set of tires and go ice hunting.
