Go Pro, Brick & Skyline Drive, Colorado

From last weekend, probably my last ride of the year with the snow coming on here in Colorado. My first attempt with the camera & editing, hope you enjoy!

Wasnt able to figure out video embedding but here is the link:

Hey Mike,
Looks like it was an awesome ride.

gol durn

Gol durn you Coloradans. That ain't fair. Highest point here in Dull-Aware is a speed bump in the Acme parking lot. Ain't fair, I tell ya.

Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism, complete with witch hunts, funny outfits, and solemn preachers thundering doom. The name of God is changed to Safety; the name of Satan is changed to Lawyer; but the object remains the same: to suck all the life out of life and make you live on the husk.

Nicely done, I like the way you spliced in the pictures that you took at the beginning.

Thanks.

Thank you for the kind words, all! Glad you enjoyed it, had alot of fun making it. Of course the best part was filming it during the ride.

Have another one in the works that includes a minor face plant in the dirt not too far from this place:

It's tough living here I tell ya! Every time I want to ride I first have to decide which one of the seemingly hundreds of roads I will ride on. And then I have to decide which route I'll take back home. And don't get me started on those incredible mountains that keep getting in the way or those seriously twisty roads one HAS to ride in order to get over them!!!

It's really tough.......sniff, sniff......

Regards,
Randy

nice video! glad the SUV pulled iver for ya, I hate it when you go out on a nice ride to get a shot of video and you're stuck behind a line of cars halfway into it.

notice the donuts in the road at 4:49 or so?!?! kids these days

mine isn't on the brick, but I'm sure glad I made it as I don't get to ride the old nail often, what with 'er being on the wrong side of the pond from me now. it's nice to return vicariously on the internet
