    I started on rides like this one so I feel like I have a bit of an obligation to pay it back at least a little bit and help others see parts of AZ they would otherwise miss.. even if it takes 5 hours to cover 25 miles of flat dirt in and out ;)

    Testing my new GoPro Hero 7 with Hypersmooth on a dirtbike... the 6 was a major step up but it still sometimes got out of sync and the video was somewhat jerky e.g. when you looked around, looks like they tuned all that out now.. I think this is good enough to not have to worry about a gimbal..

    That looked pretty good.

    Is it just me or are those trails a lot more rutted than usual?

    As is our annual tradition, we headed up to the mountains south of Superior to honor those no longer with us...

    Nice!

    Do you have any additional footage of passing that douchebag on the side by side? I have no idea why he was pissed at us but he was shouting at all of us while we passed. :dunno

    I wasn't recording that section but I don't think anyone got within 10ft of him... he should have been more concerned about the squid on the quad rolling up and down those ledges with no helmet on..

    Nice @Plawa! What happened to the guy/girl with the bent sprocket, did they make it back?

    Like how you worked in the drone footage, bet all the folks who attended that ride really appreciate the effort. At least they should appreciate the effort of making the video.

    Well done man :thumbup

    Sweet video and looks like a stellar ride @Plawa! Some of those hill climbs are no joke, especially if they're as loose as they looked in the vid :eek7:eek7

    Is that white adv helmet a memorial for someone? Sad if so.

    I like that rocky, technical stuff - looks like a blast to ride. Good to hear a couple 2-smokers in the video too; love my little Gas Gas 2T.

    Thanks for putting it together, was fun to watch :thumb

    In case you were wondering, hills are way easier when you stay in gear.
