    As some of you know, I no longer ride events where there is single track, or competition. Raced for too long and no matter how much I tell myself I will ride only for fun and at my own pace... it wont happen. Almost got me in Perry Mountain that Friday when we hit the single tract for fun!

    As someone once said if you have more than one motorcycle you have a race.

    Anyway - nuff said about that.


    BTW - in SERA Enduros when a fast guy catches you, they will "woo woo" as a warning (no horns of course). Smart thing to do is pull over or give them a nod of the helmet or a wave to let em know you will move ASAP... which may not be instantly. They may wait or they may just come around anyway.

    In Hare Scramble they just come around period. "Racin aint for pussies mates." not my quote.

    I'm up for some riding on the REZ or otherwise. I was thinking Hard Labor on Sunday. Let me know what time, I was actually planning to ride Sunday.

    Me and college boy got out early to Karick, Hansel and Greteled it out as far as we could and found our way back twice. Did two tanks and it was hot but not unbearable. No other bikes in the woods and even the campground was sparsely populated for such a nice weekend. No issues all good.

    Spooky out there at night may need to hook up a set LEDs for night running. Shit load of wildlife seen as well slow it down out there is a good rule of thumb.
    Saw some fresh bike tracks along 211. Fun little burm to jump near the Ranger camp near creek crossing. Was not there yesterday :wink:

    Hey Waysherr I'll make sure your aware next time but to clarify, we never really got lost and we had plenty of gas. We would be riding stuff we thought was new and saw our previous tracks, but it was all good and I ain't tired of any of those trails yet

    Anybody ever do the "Loggy Bottom Enduro" in Saucier, MS?

    Thinking about doing it if they ever run it for my first enduro.

    It is listed as "Postponed" right now on the SERA site.

    I use the MovieMaker that comes with windows free. I know lots of folks with cameras but they are useless unless you spend the hours it takes to view edit and publish you work for others.

    Step one - save video from camera to computer.
    Step two- open Moviemaker and import all files you want to incorporate into movie.
    Step three - edit movies until you get about 10 minutes of movie. YouTube doesn't like movies linger that 10
    Step last - publish to YouTube. Vimeo or some other. I use YouTube.

    Oh yea the you have to copy embed and actually post it on adv.

    Good luck.

    Hope you get it worked out.

    This use to be one of the more fun enduros SERA had. They haven't run it in awhile. Land issues as always.

    You will enjoy it. :eek1

    I use PowerDirector 10 by Cyberlink, it's got a learning curve but works well for me & will burn blu ray. I burn a lot of bike stuff to blue ray for the rv, 1 disc will hold 6 dvd's worth of stuff!

    Yea Hatch just 1, 2, 3...of course he makes going fast down a trail that is narrower than your handlebars look easy too!

    Thanks for the scoop on the enduro.
