    Did some single track riding last weekend. Had some nice showers for part of it which made the desert beautiful and the trails nice and sticky. Had a few falls and tried out a new mount for the go pro..tell me what you think of it.

    That looks like some fun riding. Videos look great. You have a picture of how you mounted the camera in the third video?

    Good stuff! That looks like some great riding, but dang, it looks a little hazardous in places dodging the cacti! How many times have you been stuck with cactus thorns? It also looks kind of gnarly in places, I can see why you like that 70 tooth sprocket. I really enjoyed the videos, thanks for sharing them.

    Looks like you had a blast, thanks!
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    I like the part where your bike plays dead.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    I wish I had someplace like that close by.
    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    I tip my hat to you, that's some rough riding going on there! I was expecting to hear some cuss words a few times. I like the field of vision on the helmet mount, but the fork mount has a better depth perception, if that makes sense. Less fisheye, and you can see the depth of the ruts, rocks, etc. Overall, looks like a fun ride and you got some great video out of the deal as well. Keep the ride reports coming!

    Im really liking the front mount too. Actually i wish i had a bigger memory card...then you would of heard a few cuss words and "get this pig off me!". What i posted was the easy parts..i musta dropped the bike 6 more times. From ruts, rocky ledges, hill climbs with ruts..stood the bike up several times too. The tw doesn't do so well when the ruts are so deep the my skid plate gets hung up on the edges. Haven't ran into a cactus yet..that's what i worry about...



    Next ride ill have a 16gig card so be ready for more videos...





    Heres how i mounted it. I put it on my custom cross piece that holds up my front fender.
