    I just finished editing and uploading my footage from the Gateway BMW GS Challenge.

    I decided not to participate this year and let someone on a BMW win it.

    Anyway, here's a link to Sundays ride. Most of these guys are first timers and did an awesome job. We went down some stuff that was a little tougher than anticipated because the dust was pretty bad.

    Have a look at what you're 560 pound pig can do in the woods

    Loving a song and knowing a song are two totally different things!

    Are you a true fan? Take this simple quiz to find out!

    Artist: (has already been provided to you)

    Song:

    Album it appear on:

    And for your life line question - What is the meaning of the songs title? (thats right you need to know the title of the song; or I guess you are just a poser!!!)

    Love the vid! I just bought a helmet cam and hope to do a lot of the same this summer!

    no quarter - Salival, buoght the LTD ed box set when saw them live, that DVD menu's a fucker, also seen APC and TOOL again... true enough.:ksteve
    Nice to know they're still apreciated by someone other than myself.
    Song title.... don't usually play much into this but "show No Quarter", refers to or means "show no mercy"...

    Close the door, put out the light.
    You know they won't be home tonight.
    The snow falls hard and don't you know?
    The winds of Thor are blowing cold.
    They're wearing steel that's bright and true
    They carry news that must get through.

    They choose the path where no-one goes.

    They hold no quarter.

    Walking side by side with death, The devil mocks their every step
    The snow drives back the foot that's slow, The dogs of doom are howling more
    They carry news that must get through, To build a dream for me and you

    They choose the path where no-one goes.

    They hold no quarter. They ask no quarter.
    The pain, the pain without quarter.
    They ask no quarter.
    The dogs of doom are howling more!


    I thought the line they chose the path where no one goes was fitting.

    I also changed the exposure, levels and contrast to make it look darker.
