Default Long time away

Hello guys,

It's been a while since I have been around. I busted up my shoulder last August and really just started riding off-road again. I also have a GoPro I take along now.

Here are a couple from yesterday.

It sure felt good to ride off-road again! Looking forward to some winter NorCal riding.

Hey Mike,

Glad your back and OK! Your one of the old timers from the Smackover days. What ever happened to Josh? Any idea?

I remember when we could only talk about how great a trail was. Now a days we get to slap a small camera on our helmets a share.
Awesome video! That trail looks very well used.

Any chance of showing where you ride on maybe 'Google Earth' or maybe just a Google map or something?
First Video was not working for me...

Nice vid! I've found that putting the GoPro under the visor to be the safest spot for the camera, you have to adjust your visor up (so it doesn't restrict your vision of course), but it takes some of the stress off from always wondering if it got knocked off, etc.
Glad to hear you're back on 2-wheels! Trails look awesome!
Tim

Thanks guys. I was given a streetbike and got sucked in. It sure feels good to slide the bike around.

Hollister Hills was pretty dry and slick. The winds from last week dried everything out. On one of the videos, I marked the position on the map next to it, but a quick Google maps search of Hollister Hills will get you there. Thanks for the camera tip.

By the way.. how do you like the FZ1?? I'm really considering one for the spring as a daytripper.. no multi day trips.. but I have a couple 700 mile in a day trips I'd like to do..
