    Watching this one again as I pack for this weekend's overnight. Hope to have a CONTROLLED fire up at 6,000ft altitude. We'll see how the conditions are up there.

    Nice video,I ride solo a fair amount and I always figured the smaller the bike,the less chance of endoing off into the underbrush. Honestly my DR650 can feel plenty big in certain areas.
    It still weighs well over twice what I weigh. But it's pretty darn ridable for the most part,I guess im not a big twin off road guy.

    I hope that everyone finds this in the morning as they're taking their first sip of coffee, and watches is far enough to start packing their stuff for a spontaneous trip.

    If anyone knows of any reachable camping in California during winter, then please let me know.

    Great video! Check out the AeroPress for coffee -- essentially unbreakable, reasonably compact.

    Wow, thank you for the suggestion. It looks to be about the size of a Nalgene, but still a bit smaller than my glass press. ...and for that price, how can I not try it?

    I completely tore a hamstring riding my thumper and was able to hop around and lift the bike one-legged, and make it home. On the big GS in the boonies, would have been SOL, probably reduced to making a crutch and trying to hike out to some cell coverage. Maybe digging under the wheels to right the bike as much as possible on the jug before trying a lift. Light is right for solo.

    On that same tangent, I try to have a backpack along, or moto luggage that converts into a backpack, to carry water / filtration and a tarp or bivvy, and footwear good for a very long walk. I'm used to hiking in (Bedrock) sandals, so those are what I bring. Food is not a concern; on-board storage is good for weeks. Just need water access, a calm head, and absence of major injury, and pretty much everything else can be handled. A basic med kit plus broad spectrum antibiotics -- amoxicillin+clavulanate / later generation cephalosporins -- good to have for those BFE adventures. And a locator beacon.

    ...and now that we're all stuck at home here in the Bay Area, you'll have stuff to watch.

    I'm way late to the party but like others have said, it could have been a lot worse and glad you were able to get up and running. Subbed to your YT and I'll watch the others when I get the time.

    Thank you, I don't take my safety for granted. My older videos can be a little rough, but I think that I'm improving as I go. Cheers!

    Are we done with this yet? This is not as dangerous as we originally considered. Is it time to say "enough is enough" and take our freedom back?
