Hey Shrubbo, what time does it get dark down there at this time of year? Looks like it was a great ride.

I was not disappointed, I even got to see a kangaroo in your video. :eek:

Next, I would like to see some of those poisonous spiders and snakes. >:D

Nice vid, Shrubbo!! Soundtrack us perfect. Looks like you might have done this once or twice before? :D

Sure makes me miss riding mine right now and itching for the warmer weather to return here. Next time, stick a Go-Pro on somebody else's machine so we can get a glimpse or two of that beautiful Valk!

We left at 4:30pm and I was expecting the sun to go down at 6:50pm but I forgot we were going up on the range so it was probably around 7:50 then it dipped below the horizon.

As for the snakes and **** I don't really notice them probably because I am used to it however I look and wonder how the F*&^ you guys can go camping with bears. Screw that !

Thanks mate, yeah done a few and I would like to think I am getting better at them but the real reason I do them is so I can look back later and remember very clearly. I look at photos and yeah ok but when I watch these I seem to remember much more, they capture the mood for me. I think it helps that I go looking for the music first that suits my overall feeling for the day. Very subjective obviously but it seems to work.

Bears are not a problem - We have guns - However the white tail deer is by far the deadliest animal to humans in the USA.

FEAR THE DEER
On average, sharks, bears and alligators each kill one person a year in the United States, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Snakes and lizards kill six people a year. Spiders kill seven. Stinging ants and the like kill nine people a year. Cows (none in the wild) kill 20. Dogs kill 28 each year. Horses, pigs and other mammals kill 52 people a year, while bees, wasps and hornets combine for a whopping 58 deaths in a typical year.
Responsible for more deaths than all those other creatures combined, deer are involved in crashes that kill nearly 200 Americans a year.

I have to agree. In 48 years I have only seen about 5 bears in my life, but I have seen hundreds of deer. Quite a few of them when they jumped in front of my car. :D

Yeah but a dear has zero potential of dragging you out of a tent for a late night snack right? ;)

What brand windshield is attached to the lower screen and how effective is it in cutting the wind? Where do you buy one?
Thanks,
Mike
If you search ebay for

Universal Motorcycle motobike Windshield Windscreen Transparent Spoiler Shield

you will find heaps of them and different styles now as well. They where about a third to a quarter the price of the nearest competitor at the time and I only bought one to see if it would help... which it did... so I kept it.

For me it saved me throwing the entire windscreen experiment into the bin. With that little jigger I have smooth air flowing into my helmet but I can also ride with my jacket open or a button up shirt without it inflating so for me I am very happy. Read this thread for my full write up on the thing...

That almost never happens.....

A snake or a spider can hide in your sleeping bag though and you guys have the most deadly ones in the world. You usually can see bears coming, not like that will help you though. Truth be told, most bears are afraid of people and usually don't come around unless they are used to seeing people. Bears are also pretty easily scared, unless it is a grizzly, then you are toast. Also, if you get between a cub and it's momma, forget it. :eek:

I remember hearing of a sign somewhere that said for hikers to wear small bells tied on them and bring pepper spray to prevent bear attacks. The sign then said to tell the difference between black bear and grizzly bear poop is that grizzly bear poop looks just like black bear poop except is smells like pepper and has small bells in it. >:D>:D>:D
