    It would be a dream ride for me to make it down there and see those amazing mountains!

    For now I must enjoy some great Texas weather! It is only perfect here a couple months out of the year... then gets hot or cold!

    Day tripping on my new (but previously owned) F650GS. I had just bought it the day before this video. I took it on an easy off road rode to start with.

    its a good mix of bikes, she out paces me on the 650 and goes everywhere I can go from Hatcher pass in Alaska, Copper Canyon Mexico to the infamous La Amatillo border crossing in Honduras and beyond. Another year to go....

    I left Friday around 3pm and made my way to Five Mile to start my ride along the PET. Weather was clearing from all the rain we had during the week. I was hoping for good roads with minimal dust and/or mud, and that's exactly what I got. Conditions were excellent. I did get rained on breifly just before I got to Simpson Springs Station, but nothing too bad. I took a detour down South to Topaz Valley where I camped for the night. Then back to the PET in the morning. The stretch from Wendover back to SLC on I-80 wasn't as bad as I imagined. Total milege according to my GPS was 401 miles.(GPS was acting up a bit, so I could be off a little) Enjoy the photos.

    One of the nicest scenes from a long weekend riding North Georgia and Western North Carolina. Some trails in GA and the Dragon in NC. Great time!

    What editing software and export settings did you use? In general I've found it best NOT to export directly to YouTube (I use either Windows Live Movie Maker on Windows 7 or Sony Movie Studio HD Platinum 10.0 when I want to get a bit more serious with my editing. In both cases, however, and despite there being an option to upload directly to YouTube I personally render the movie and export to a folder where I save my videos and then upload it from there using the usual YouTube method. Watching your video on the YouTube channel I note that the maximum resolution available is 480 so I suspect that either you chose an SD setting on exporting from your software or if only default settings are available to you then they do not include HD.
