    Moab 17 The Thrill of Victory & Agony of Defeat

    I spent the better part of the past 9 months viewing all my Moab 17 footage to come up with this version of events. This mumbo-jumbo assortment of clips is presented to show the lighter side of the TW gathering this past March 2017. I cannot guarantee no TW (or KTM) rider got hurt during the filming of these clips but if they did they didn't fess up to it. At the end of the video, I have a short still photo section.

    Thanks Kris, good memories and your subtitles were good for a laugh. Time line for the rides was all over the place.

    putt-putt, you need to join the Moab gathering. We do a lot of putting around down there. There are also riders of all abilities and we need more Canadians.

    Just when I had just about decided that I really didn’t need to return for Moab2018 Admiral goes and dangles this irresistible bait.
    Another most excellent video!

    That was fabulous Kris. I KNOW that I fell more than anyone else on the two days I rode; so it was nice to see others taking hits too. I've always thought that an OOPS pics and vids thread would be great here.

    Once again Kris, you make me green with envy. What a great compilation of Moab. Thanks for taking us along. I will always be waiting for the next one.
