    Admiral and Georgie's Test Ride

    Admiral and Georgie ride the first two minutes on a test ride on my backroads accompanied by Adam-in-Nevada, me, and evan, a.k.a. Mike the Motor Man. Who else would sell a great engine, hand delivers it then personally install it?. Gosh, he even accompanied the Admiral on a personally escorted test ride.
    Admiral's dog Georgie has amazing sea legs but with the heat we left both dogs at home then all left for a longer ride. My camera's battery pooped out part way into a multi mile single trac trail. Off to the left Adam parrallels me on more advanced single track hung on steeper valley wall. Eventually trails merge and continue upwards.
    Admiral had his fancy Ion camera so he should post some too. His will probably capture engine sound better, I just thought you folks would like to see Georgie.

    That dog on the bike is so punk-rock. My cattle dogs cant sit still like that. Ive thought about fabbing an enclosed box for one of them. When I was in bangkok thailand I saw a tiny dog that rode with its feet on the lap of the driver and the front paws on the handlebars, it was hilarious looking. Im so envious of that sunshine and dry country. Here its starting to get down into the mid 30s at night and summer is singing its swan song at the moment. Nice video thanks for sharing.

    This Is great. You have an awesome place to ride for sure. I really like the single track stuff where you can get in the "zone."

    One bit of good news is my new ION camera worked great. I got 1 hour 7 minutes worth of good Fred riding country video. Bad news is I got 1 hour 7 minutes worth of good Fred riding country video to edit! I'll try to get it pared down to 5-6 minutes, so we won't bore the heck out of folks. But I got to ride it and it was fun. Boy I wish Fred lived closer!

    Edit: So weird to see Georgie and myself recorded. Not use to seeing ourselves.

    I checked Georgie and the bike for any hidden vacuum, suction cups, doggie velcro, or other antigravity devices. Nothing. She really stayed planted on several rougher bumps looking calm and in her groove even when slightly airborn. That dog was born to ride.
    My apologies to Admiral for riding so close while trying to video Georgie's secret technique with a wide angle lens, I should have warned him. He was probably thinking "Gee, they sure ride a lot closer together in California than we do back home in Idaho".
