    Keep it up and you'll be ready for Moab before you know it.

    What an awesome desert place to ride. Very cool to see Air Force One fly overhead. I saw the shadow on the ground and wondered what had flown overhead. I saw AF1 Taxiing once when Bill Clinton was the prez. Love the Hail to the Chief soundtrack you inserted. Very Funny.

    I also love the cat-call whistle when you arrived and Tango India Tango Mountain. I love those clever things. I could see your drone shadow when you were riding up the hill as well. I chuckled.

    If you were thinking of coming to Moab to ride, don't. You're gonna make us look bad. I kid on that part. You're getting some great trail riding seat time for sure.

    Thanks for sharing another awesomer video.

    Admittedly Moab will have some steeper slopes, but then again those petrified sand dunes can seem like riding on poured concrete.

    The concrete comes in two flavors, twin track painted with smeared jeep rubber:
    Video was shot during my first visit after I sucked a valve on my bike downstream along the Colorado River. Iwas kindly loaned a TW by The Right Honorable Judge Borneo. I dove his bike into a sandbank avoiding an oncoming side-by side Razor thus explaining the grassy salad stuck in the turn signal. Sorry Judge! Any charges for damage still pending?

    ...and single track where you just try to chase these little white painted worms while avoiding drop-offs.



    Either way I think Dual Sport would have a blast.

    At first I thought, oh crap, a damn Thunderbird or Pterodactyl crawled out from the depths of that mine to swoop us up, HAHA! Sometimes the soundtrack writes itself! Glad you got a chuckle out of it!

    Don't worry, Moab has plenty of sand to deflate my riding ego

    Thanks for watching!

    what drone do you use? Does it auto follow you at a given height? Don't know anything about drones but would like to learn. By the way nice video.

    I use the DJI Mavic Air. It has multiple follow modes depending on your surroundings. It's very compact which is a must when out on the Tdub! Thanks for watching and Merry Christmas!
