8/5/10 Barona Oaks MX The Good And The Bad

Another week at the track and this time i played with the camera a bit. I mounted my cam on top of the helmet and i also did a swing arm view but was only able to get about a half a lap before it moved to sideways position. I also broke ANOTHER one of my pivot arm assembly's trying to tighten it down too tight today :doh:

The video starts off with the bad... aka ME. Then it goes on to the good who is a kid named Garrett Hart that i met out at the track. He was cool enough to hit the in field jump a bunch while i video taped him. So much thanks to you Garrett... if you sign up to teh site and see this... THANKS!

i also added some music to this weeks video. Some Pennywise for my part and some Pharrell for Garrets part as he told me he is into rap. so sorry if you don't like rap but i am all over the board when it comes to music and i enjoy it anyway.

as always it will look better in 720p if you click the button. Enjoy!!!
 
sweet vids! congratz on the first barrel roll :P I feel that if you gas it just a few seconds earlier coming out of that corner for the big jump you will make it more consistently :thumb: that guy you were filming took up like the entire second have of the vid :shocked: he was good though haha

:satisfied: That was a good 6:45 :thumb: I really dig that swing-arm view, can't wait till you get the upside down view figured out.

:lol: That "dirt nap" wasn't to bad, :noidea: stuff happens, should watch me sometime and you'll know what I mean. :smirk: :bonk:

The corners are still your problem, go set the camera up with it looking at a corner and then run it a few times, so we can actually see what you're doing. Notice how the extra speed out of the corner helps Hart clear the jump better? BTW do you even use the front brake, I couldn't see from those angles?

:hail: Thanks for the credit at the end, but addicts has a "t" in it. :P

yea i use front brake but only going into it... I think a lot of it has to do with confidence.... ill be honest im still scared of those turny dirt wall thingys.

Edit: i fixed the typo at the end.
 
:thumb: just for you Trav #600 on your ride report. Sweet video and you will see the work you put in at the track out in the Dez. I better step up my workout regiment before the dez season kicks in. :ride:
