    Thats funny man. I saw this video the other day! I think they had it posted on their facebook page. Just to let you know they also started another one of their contests for a free camera. you just have to make up a sport and tell them about it. FYI. Glad that you didn't crack anything when you fliped it

    I'll try to learn from your experience when it comes to mud holes. Glad you weren't injured.

    Looks like you did a complete flip and landed, cat-like right back on your feet!

    Nice vid man! That camera takes some quality footage too. It's great catching those moments on film. How deep do some of those mud holes get out there?

    I picked up a cheap Polariod HD cam and deff got what i paid for! It did get a random wreck i had (worth a cheap laugh) when some friends and I were messin around on trails. I'm on the DRZ (temporarily).

    How about a very short RR with face plant?:D

    Whatever forum it belongs in, great vids nonetheless. :thumb

    some of em can get pretty burly. but it isn't the depth that will get you, it is the consistency. it is comparable to peanut butter. so hard to dig out. i got stuck in my jeep a few years back, first ride with the lift on. took some REAL convincing to get that one out.

    Other than you doing something stupid the reports use of tech is the best. Very crisp and good sound. Nice pix at the end with you talking. Good job - I live under a computer rock.

    Glad you didn't hit the middle. Lift the front a bit and you'll make it.

    put something on and stay in that position.
    that got a laugh out of me. that contourHD gives a very good picture, i'll say that.

    helmet cam technology is leaps and bounds from where it was a few years ago. quality sound as well.

    Now go try it on some wooded trails with low hanging branches and bring us the results. :D Should rival the mud vid.
