    Just a hint....try not to pant....you don`t get any oxygen in tour system when you do. Try to take a deep breath and hold it as long as you can then exhale deep. You will have more energy and your heart rate will drop...try it.

    Thanks, I thought I was having a heart-attack at Hatfield McCoy when I couldn't stop breathing like that. :(

    Nice video, indypup. In addition to learning how to pop wheelies and cross logs, it looks like another basic skill I should learn is how to turn around when stopped on a hill.

    Thanks for the info .I will probably just shoot down RT.7 to Fly then take the ferry across to RT.2. I will PM you the GPS coordinates to the cabin @ Tappan Lake so you can check it out sometime. Don't pay any attenion to the Private Property & No Tresspassing signs when you start back the lane.

    Depends where I go, if it's on the road orange, green if I'm 100% offroad.

    I'm guessing you were out of breath before you got to the hill.

    That first 15% of that hill was a bitch, huh?

    I was fine until I fell over and slid down the hill and had to hike back up it and the muscle a 300# bike around. ;)

    The first two shots were attempted in first gear which caused a bit too much wheel spin. The successful third attempt was made in second gear with more traction hook-up. :freaky

    I may make another video of the rest of the carnage...lol I hung out there about 1/2 hour getting video of all the crashes. I was at bottom of the hill though and everyone looks like they are a mile away using the gopro. May try to zoom in a bit and see how that looks...

    Speaking from experience (having taken multiple runs at many a hill), go faster before you get to the hill. If you had carried speed entering the woods and through the left hander before it got steep, you wouldn't have had as much trouble at the top. Accelerating up the hill is the hard way up.

    After 3 years away from the dirt I'll get to see if I can still do what I'm talking about at the Baby Burr. I should get a motivational tape tp play while I'm riding, momentum momentum momentum stand up!

    lol, sounds like something I should try too. :D

    So swingset is playing in the dirt this weekend? I told sion I'd do the road ride though. :( May have to renege on him though. I'd like to learn a thing or two from swingset... ;)
