    Come on all you doubting thomases....:ddog This is classis GJ riding!

    My GoPro had the same effect. Probably the combination of wide angle and anti-vibe feature...The first time I watched my replay, I couldn't figure out why the helmet looked so static....when I was actually moving around and vibrating on the ride.

    At any rate, this is real and the riding is real and GJ has access to some "unbelievably" great riding. 10 minutes from town...hell you could ride out your back door, duck into a wash and be on the skinny ridges in no time..

    So

    Pedal your doubting butts out here and have the time of your life!!

    You doubting dickheads better be prepared to come back here and apologize !! Just go to Utube and look for Skinny Ridge , Grand Junction before running off at the mouth . There are tons of vids there of the riding area .

    Our how about this one, shot by the same guy who shot the original one in post #1? This one is shot in our very own back yard atDonner (pass) Hill. His helmet "doesn't move" much in this one either. Maybe it's faked? Maybe there is no such place as Donner(Pass) Hill. Maybe some of you skeptics don't know the first damn thing about how a video looks when it's attached to the same platform it's shooting from (in this case a helmet).
    These videos are REAL, and the rest of you are idiots. I mean full blown, complete idiots.

    Thanks for sharing the video, silverboy. Looks like a fantastic place to ride. It looks similar to the bentonite hills north of Lovell, Wyoming. Just might have to make a road trip to Grand Junction.

    As for the doubters...:rofl!!!

    I apologize if your lack of logical reasoning skills caused you to be offended.

    Who'd have thought everybody outside the motorcycling world would be as excited about this as we are.

    Those numbskulls who think it's fake are missing a couple of vital points: Firstly there is already a trail so SOMEBODY has ridden it before. Secondly, if it was fake, how the heck did the rider get the background footage of traversing that ridge in order to superimpose a picture of their helmet?
