Well-produced video!

I'm impressed- riding through so much mud and barely dirtying the bike. :ban

Jack, the secret is using only high quality mud for reduced clingability and enhanched undirtyness.

in the late 60's a higher quality mud was developed. Being the second iteration of quality mud for photographic purposes it was denoted the "B" range. Having an optimum image factor (oif) of 25. Further refinements saw 44 and 50 sub variations of the B range. With such large popular appeal......wait for it ...the oif B25, B44 and B50 came about.

So now you know.

Great video, steady non vibrating camera :cool:

I'm not really into trail riding but that looked easy fun.

The B40 seems to be a tad underestimated.

Didn't look "easy" to me- more like "masterful" riding.

Fantastic! And nearly feet-up all the way. I liked the camera position. Never found the ideal location for my FauxPro.

The camera (a cheapish Mobius) is fixed to a piece of wood, that is zip-tied to the carrier. Works OK as long as there is not too much wind. For my kind of trail riding, there seldom is.
