    Nice work...that is some sweet riding in the movie. Some of that stuff is really technical. Makes me wanna get out there and give some of those sections a try. It also really makes wish I had an extra 2000$ for a doog dually frame

    It still kills me with the lack of trees...I am so used to plush forest.

    We have got areas with trees just like you guys up north. Just the video was shot in my backyard. We have not gotton out to the tree infested areas yet with the video camera. There is a local rider building a N. Shore wanabe are not to far from here. We will be getting more footage there as well when it is compleat.

    I think you could make the video shorter by not showing everything 3 times, if people wanted to watch something again they could just rewind it a little. And could you put it into a file instead of having it like that? Or can you right click somewhere...I didnt try that. Mine stopped downloading around 1/3 into it...or maybe that was actually the end. Yea I know...i'm a bītch. lol

    You didn't actually Download it...you were streaming it. That's why it didn't finish! Right click on the link to the video and "save target as" and save it to your HD and then you wont have that problem.

    Dirtbikedude, looks just as good as the last time I saw it! Now lets get some video of riding with trees...ha ha.

    if you aren't having fun, then you get rigid, stiff, crash, cry and then you make your new friend run away..... (there don't you feel less nervous now?)

    when it's snowin check this place out http://www.treelinemedia.ca/phpBB2/index.php

    What you do not see are the broken brake levers, the bent wheel and the, shall we say, minor patches of blood on his face.
    You should have seen him riding down trying to use his foot as a break on the rear tire. Unfortunatly the footage is on another guys camera and I have not recieved it yet.

    Yea I know...i'm a bītch. lol
    And all along I thought you were at least male.
