    I didn't see a sub-forum for videos - so I guess I'll put it here..

    I just picked up a GoPro and today I tried it out.. Put together a video of our ride from yesterday. It was about a 5hr ride with a variety of stuff. Still getting the hang of editing and putting it all together :) One thing I notice is the fish eye lens takes a bit of depth away from the vid. A lot of steep stuff didn't look like it in the video. Oh well, still cool looking!

    The new clutch is in the KLX and it's running like a beast :D

    It was recorded in 720p @ 60fps, but I had to downsize it a bit because the file was huuuuuuge. Can't wait for the next ride! :D

    what are those black "things" flying about in your slo-mo vid's at the track in CT? They're moving awfully fast for a slo-mo video. . . and truning at very sharp angles. One of 'em is flying right at the cameraman.

    First sighting is at :56; second at :58 - 1:01; a good one at 1:21; and then the one that flies at the cameraman is cool, at 1:28. There are others.
    Funky.
    Could these be "Rods"?
    Could I be drinking too much tonight?

    Thanks for the vid's - and good riding too!

    Carry on.

    Thanks for the comments!! :)

    I had fun making the vids :D

    Pariahtize - I believe they're dragonflies.. That track has a bit of swamp around it and there's lots of dragonflies around.

    Bomber - They gave me some serious meds when I went in with the popped shoulder!!! They could have amputated my arm and I probably wouldn't have cared at that point!!! hahaaa...

    The good thing is if I ever pop my arm out again, I know how to get it back in place.. When it happened I tryed to google on my phone how to pop it back in, but the pain was so crazy I had to just get to the hospital. hahaaa

    Live and learn :D
