Ain't nobody sayin' it's that technical.
Highlights from Helmet Cam:
Since no one is holding their breath for a 6 hour long video of the route, you'll be happy to know it's still uploading and I won't bore you with it :)
Did you not have the camera's on when you went into the weeds?
Conveniently no I didn't. I stopped recording at the bottom of the hill to fix my tank bag since batteries were running low. After the mis-direction of the bike's inertia incident, I realized by GoPro and bandit weren't recording.
Final video up.
I was honestly hoping someone was recording!
Thanks for the videos Adam.hopefully packindirt had his GoPro on.next year I will have one on my bike catching all your offtrail bushwhacking excitement
I see what you did there.
Super busy since we got back; I haven't even looked at the video yet. Since I was the #5 bike, I may not have gotten the whole thing. All I saw was Adam's helmet going into the weeds on the right side of the trail, hoping there was run-off room before he found a tree. He was just behind a little rise so the best pic may be the one of your hands in the air, like "I meant to do that". No damage and he kept it upright.
This weekend looks a little quieter so stay tuned.
I’m in Gorham NH this weekend with the BMW QC club. All I know is not a lick of English and we’ll be off road up to the border tomorrow. I see a possible second week of hamster in my future. These guys are great. Just don’t know what they’re saying.
We used to camp there every Columbus day weekend, family with the camper no motorcycle, and I saw them yearly. Talked to them, the few that spoke English, and gave them some firewood one year when we left early. Great group of people.
Wish I was there now instead of working.
It was a blast! but I have to say, if I ride the GSA like these guys do, I'll need a new $3,00 suspension after 2 years. This riding style is amazing and the bike absolutely handled it but I can't financially afford to ride like this without a 2nd mortgage. need a real dual sport.
Since I know most of you here and not sure this is warranting it's own thread, here's the route I took with the Quebec Crew on Saturday. Lots of nasty gravel dirt. OHRV sticker required!
7AM to 9AM was road up to the border. Then we took dirt south and backtracked up again on the same very twisty route then we were on mostly dirt until we were back in Gorham.
In retrospect this was probably 20% harder than Hamster due to the terrain. Sand, Mud, big huge granite rocks (for erosion reasons) on each hill climb. it was a lot for my 600 pound motorcycle to handle. If you're on a big ADV bike, if you can maintain 30-40 on the off-road portions, consider yourself an expert
lets do this next year with our group
Thanks for sharing. Looks like a nice loop.
Adam when not off the trail and on the tarmac
Or more correctly this is Adam when he hits the asphalt
That's me on my DR every morning on my way to work.
Had to remove my luggage while commuting. Keep scraping it.
3 seconds of excitement followed by however many miles of NH's most boring highway. ugh. I hate going to Dartmouth.
The ONLY time my editing skills worked in my favor :) I'm on this highway for 2-3 miles a week at most. Work near Dartmouth and on most days, I take the back road through Etna home and hit dirt roads through Goose Pond area. Adds half an hour to my commute I could you could say I ride the hamster every day
