    Nice @Plawa!

    Some of those hill climbs look nasty as hell, especially that rocky boulder strewn bit :eek7:eek7. If memory serves me from your previous video, this is in CO, correct? That drone footage you captured that ride was spectacular, truly incredible perspective.

    Looking forward to watching what you put together and reading the report :thumb:thumb

    Correct... Crested Butte, CO. I left the drone at home this time but I still got a ton of video, it will take me some time to go through it all but will hopefully be worth it..

    Still sifting through video... and to make matters worse, I'm heading back to CO on Wednesday on a big bike. I just can't catch a break...

    In the meantime - 5 minutes of pure joy (no, not that..)

    Looks like perfect dirt for that trail rip @Plawa! And I'm not going to feel sorry for you if you get to head back that way and enjoy more 2-wheeled fun...lol.

    That riding reminds me of what it's like riding in Gifford Pinchot out here, that trail looked fantastic :thumb:thumb

    Safe travels as you head back on the big bike :ricky :ricky

    CO big bike trip is in the books... the levels of epicness (that's a word!) were unprecedented, not a single drop on the offroad days.. as usual it will be a couple weeks before I get to editing it all but if any of you cool kids are on Instagram you can get an early preview @Plawasan

    That's a seriously cool shot :nod:nod

    Taken from your drone, or did you stop and take it once those riders were past and you hung back?

    Looking forward to reading about it (and watching) when you have time to craft your magic :thumb :thumb

    Hell yeah, great video @Plawa :super :thumb :thumbup

    Dude, some of those trails were serious pucker factor inducing - like riding that ridge line and some of the cut-in stuff on the side of the mountains. Holy hell. I've ridden a few crazy trails up in Gifford Pinchot NF, but nothing like that before. No coming back if you fall on some of those sections.

    Great music selection too, perfect theme of freedom.

    Well done man, that was a pleasure to watch and I will be going back to watch again when I need a break from the damn nuthouse I work in...lol.

    Now, where's the big bike video with drone footage...muwahahahahaha :ricky :ricky

    Thanks! I think this is the only thing the gopro makes looks worse than it actually is but there was some serious clenching going on anyway ;)

    Big bikes are next now that I got this out of the way ...

    That’s really good footage. I need to work on my GoPro skills. It’s pretty amateur.

    And you are no amateur rider. Hell I stalled on about a 2% grade yesterday lol

    Honestly it's mostly just time... a lot of time. I'd say between sorting the footage, picking the clips you want to use and then editing them to music it's ~10h that goes into a 3 minute video. Oh yes, I'm single, why do you ask?

    I usually stall going down a hill ;)

    I went through all my footage to find the good stuff, now comes editing to reasonable length and making it somewhat hopefully watchable. I had all sorts of issues with my mic this time so I'll have to resort to mostly music but at least you don't have to listen to my yapping and heavy breathing ;)

    I will incorporate the drone footage into the final videos but I think it deserves it's own edit.. the scenery out there is just amazing.

    Awesome! Thanks for sharing!

    Been to a lot of those passes but only on my small bike.........don’t think I could get the GSA thru some of them.

    Need to up my game.

    Said so in the other thread, but it deserves it here too...that's a killer video @Plawa! Spectacular scenery and riding bikes, what could be better. Good job manning the controls of the Mavic, I know how hard it is to keep a subject in frame flying like that.

    I want to go out and ride now...lol.

    Can I hire you as my official videographer? I can pay you with takeoff tires and month old leftover trailmix.

    That may be a step up from what I usually find in my tankbag when hunger strikes ;)

    And the answer is yes... the drone can go up to about 30mph so there’s plenty of buffer...
