    T-Dub Wub Wub...the backyard obstacle riding video

    So it's only been 4 months since I broke my wrist requiring distal radius surgery and I thought I'd be riding a little by now, but not this hard this quickly! My wrist still doesn't have full range of motion but on a good day if I don't push too hard I don't notice any discomfort. That said, I'm worried that if I fall on my right hand, it will become a write off...or I'd be riding harder!

    I do most of my riding with Ditch Bitch who is a bit more experienced rider and pushes me to excel. A wanna be trials rider and myself more enduro, we both seek challenging terrain.

    We filmed this in one day and look forward to more multi-camera edited videos. I have several edited videos but with rural internet I can't upload them all or I'll exceed my monthly data usage (then the speed drops)....but this one is worth sharing. Enjoy!

    T-Dub Wub Wub!

    HOOT! I love it.
    You guys are having way too much fun...and pushing each other & yourselves a little. And that's good. I always like to ride behind someone who is just a little bit better than me....and pass 'em every time I can!

    I'd highly recommend you get some support for that recovering wrist!
    I broke my wrist once when I 'effed up a parachute landing. After it was much better and I got the plaster off, I found a wrist support made of tough, slightly flexible plastic, lightly padded. Held on with an Ace bandage.
    Great support 'til the wrist was well healed...and I didn't have to miss any more fun stuff!

    More vids...more vids!

    Thanks. Glad to share with others when I can, and glad others enjoy it.

    She used to ride a xr250L with a bald back tire so following her through mud was quite scary knowing shes a little better of a rider and forgetting my bike was better than hers on some terrain.Trying to keep up with a CRF250X will keep you on your toes too....till we get in the tight trails and I'd leave him behind. Challenging yourself with reasonable risk assessment IMO is a great way to keep improving without taking risks beyond your skill level. Seeing someone more experienced can also give you some cues on how to approach stuff and what to expect. Catching up with a more experienced rider can also push them to up their game as well.

    I wore a brace on and off for 2 months or so. I used it as much as possible and when it got sore I'd put the brace on for a bit. I did a lot of sanding and painting in my recovery. I would wear the brace if it were my left hand but it's not easy to throttle without some wrist movement.

    Once the ticks, garden work, and busy season at work calm down a little we'll be doing a lot more video work. Aug/Sept should be some productive filmed ride time.

    You practice track is cool!
    So many different things to play with & master...dirt, mud, sand, rocks, logs, wet, dry, snow, slides, wheelies!
    I have an area scoped out for that this summer, but not as good.

    More vids, please...and tell us more about woods riding in Nova Scotia!

    And black flies!!!... little friggers were all over me yesterday cleaning out my drum brake.



    The "sand" is actually a giant sawdust pile roughly 8 acres....though we do get sand in the valleys on the forestry roads of which we have 1480km/919m of connected to our dirt road giving us access to rivers, lakes, and rolling hills. There are ATV and foot trails as well though most of the tight single track riding is right behind our house. Mostly loam soil full of rocks and roots.
