1. Nov 27, 2011 Dirt Clods at Kevin's Track


    from Phil Rager Added 78 0 0

    11/27/2011 THe Dirt Clods got a beautiful late November day to ride at Kevin's. This video is a clip from a video of 4 of us riding Kevin's MX track. In order of appearance: Joe is on the CRF250R, Becky is on my XR100, Jack, Becky's father, is on my 300EXC, and I am on my YZ250. This was Becky's 3rd time riding, so, she did not do the g-out (the dip) making her lap a touch shorter. This was great since we got to ride with her almost every lap. Jack has ridden street bikes a lot and is just getting into dirt bikes with his daughter (good father). He was passing the jumps since he is not comfortable with them yet and I had asked him to wind out the KTM when he felt safe (to keep the plug from fouling). Jack & I roadraced motorcycles during the 80s, so, he is familiar with going fast. I used the helmet mount this time just for variety. I don't know what the creaking sound is. My guess is my helmet rubbing against my neck brace. Another great day of riding.

    • Dirt Clods at Joe's track


      from Phil Rager Added 99 1 0

      11/20/2011 the Dirt Clods rode at Joe's track. This is about 5.5 minutes out of a 20 minute video. Right at the beginning you can see Joe's house. About 45 seconds into the video you can see Joe pass me on his CRF250R. The other riders are Kevin, CRF450X and Chris-1 (we have 3 Chrises), WR450F. The group is just playing chase in the woods. Its a cloudy day and there are dark clouds rolling in as this is being recorded. You can tell by how dark it gets as the video plays. One giveaway of how dark it was getting is how much the headlight from my 300EXC shows up as it goes on. It actually gets even darker past where I cut off the video. Just another fun day of riding. :-)

      • Crash Testing a GoPro


        from Phil Rager Added 268 2 0

        11/06/2011. The local group of dirt riders (we call ourselves "Dirt Clods") was riding my home track having a good time. I was riding my 2005 YZ250, putting in some good laps. As I caught up to one of the other riders, I misjudged how close I was to him. Fearing I would run into him when he singled the double, I, needlessly, after watching the video, tried to adjust my my speed and jump, and really botched it. However, one good thing. It did show just how tough the GoPro system is. Camera with case and mount all still work fine. There were no scratches on the lens. I had worried about crashing and damaging the GoPro, but no more. The damage to the bike cost almost as much as the entire GoPro system. :-( No need for more testing. If only I could crash more gracefully. The person to the right of the jump in the blue sweatshirt taking pictures is my wife, Linda. She had a great view of my crash. After she found out I was OK, she informed me that she was not happy with my riding. I wasn't real pleased myself.

        • Practicing at home on my old YZ490


          from Phil Rager Added 34 0 0

          11/03/2011. Practicing on my track in my yard (doing yard work?) on my 1989 YZ490. This bike is over 22 years old and runs great. I get teased about riding something this old, but I love it. I know I'm faster on my 2005 YZ250, but therre is something special about cranking it on that old beast.

          • Oct 2, 2011 Kevin & I play racing on his track


            from Phil Rager Added 32 0 0

            Oct 2, 2011 was a warm rainy day. Kevin & I were out cutting laps for fun on his track when a race broke out. Kevin is really fast for someone who just started dirt riding Oct 2010. After trying the chest vs helmet mount and thinking that I prefer the chest mount, riding in the rain and, especially, the mud brought out an advantage for the helmet mount. Its higher and would probably catch less mud. Mud comes off the back tire of the rider in front and off your own front tire where you run into it. Guess I'll have to keep testing. :-)

            • GoPro Home Track - 2


              from Phil Rager Added 23 1 0

              8/18/2011. This video was immediately following the GoPro Home Track - 1 video. I was checking out the difference in the mounts using the chest mount this time. Turns out that what I felt was correct, the chest mount gives a better depiction of the roughness of the terrain.
