That looked like a good time!! as dry and dusty as it is normally here in UT, I envy you guys riding in all that mud and lush green stuff




I have to admit, I was however, doing alot of flinching watching those wide panniers going through all of those trees...just knowing they were going to get clipped!




Nice videos!

Are these videos jumpy or am I having a problem with my video player (but only on Photobucket)?



From what I can tell from every tenth frame or so, it looks like a good time. Thanks for sharing.



I try to avoid mud too, but it's not the mud I don't like, it's the clean up afterward.

Looks like you folks were in TW country for sure. Yea, between the ride, clean up and video production, you folks had a long day. I had fun as well. Thanks. Gerry

Thanks for posting these video's up. Pretty fun to watch!




For what it's worth, I stopped using photobucket as a video host before I even posted my first video. Like you I had better quality on my computer, plus the video takes up a lot of available space that I wanted to reserve for pictures, since I used the free limited amount of space. This was my resolution to the problem for video's: I created a free youtube account. Took me a while to figure it out, and I'm still learning and playing with the features of youtube, but for me, the quality was much better.

That camera takes a pretty good video.Thanks for posting.That was a great ride even though I was a wee bit sore the next day.



And you are right Wingnut the panniers do get in the way at times.I need to get a top box to put my gear in when trail riding and then I can remove the panniers.The pelican case that Ridgeline uses is perfect.



When are we getting out again?

I thought I would post up a few pictures of the run.



The crazy guy in this pict is my Harley riding brother-in -law.He owns an 03 RoadKing Screaming Eagle.Sweet bike.He fell in love with my TW and has been looking all summer for one.He just picked up this 06 three days earlier and this was his maiden voyage on it.Over 300klms and 12hours later I think he was broken in.







Some nice scenery on the way:





We even met a couple friends from work at the range and they offered me a couple shots:





This is the mud hole that we had detour around and my boot after I checked it out:







Back to pavement for a while:





There was lots of mud but there was also lots of dust.We just had to wash it down.But only one each!!:





A couple more shots.Look at the smile on that new T-Dub owner:







And this is what the little beast looked like when I got home.Nothing a little soap and water won't wash off:





All in all it was a great day with some great guys.I can't wait for the next trip.

And to think that last spring I was the only local T-Dubber around...now we have our own little "gang" of three.
