    This trail is called Mullet

    Party up front, business out back. I do hit the log drop... I don't hit that gigantic wooden jump

    jealous

    I like the chest mount with no background music. It makes it feel more real. Plus the fact you didn't do a 80' double front flip.
    I could almost convince myself it was me riding in a dream world with no snow. Stupid wet, crusty, sticky, dirty, white everywhere snow. But I digress.

    Good vid! Keep them coming us seasonal challenged riders!

    Looked like you had enough speed for the gap. Of course that's what I thought too, as I was casing it The log ride worked out nice but what's up with skipping the skinny above it? Gotta go for all the extra credit ya know

    It's in Bellingham near to Canada but in the US.

    Ken - I actually suck at skinnies so I skip them. The log ride right after is scary enough for me. I'm sure I'll bite it on that one at some point and not looking forward to it.

    I have some Hans Dampf tires to mount up tonight. The Muddy Mary's are just about toast so I'm starting to slide around a little out back. The H-D's feel grippy. Their new rubber is gonna be good, I can tell.

    They just did a short review in the new Decline. Looks promising...
    BTW, the only way to get good at skinnies is to keep trying. Just be selective on which ones to ride (that particular one nearly got me as I recall...)

    Nice vids, keep 'em coming!

    I think you've had a firebird for a while? How is the firebird holding up for you under those riding conditons (frame, periodic maintenance, etc)?

    My brother happened to cut that wood for the bridge. He has a Wood-Mizer portable bandsaw and he can cut stuff like that on-site. It's very cool

    I've actually had 2 Firebirds. I went from a Large to an XL. I like the XL better for me. You can see my knees when I pedal in the vids and I think that explains why....

    I did another video with the new Hans Dampf tire today. But the battery ran out halfway thorough the trail. So I might try again tomorrow.

    Hey - it'll be 8 months of long hard campaigning. If I win... will be looking for ways that Bellingham can purchase the mountain (among other important issues).

    Looks like I had a copy/paste disaster. Was supposed to be Cheech and Chongs Wild Ride here. Lets see if this works.

    Those are some fine trails and some dang good riding on your part!
    I really like the point-of-view of that camera mount. I felt like I was driving and I crashed (3) times and died twice.

    The video right above your post is changed. For some reason I put the same one from the top in. The new one starts where the first one ends... right where I pop out on to the road where the dog was running. If you click to vimeo you can see it in much better resolution.

    It might be... but your best bet is to look here.
    http://www.ridegalbraith.com/TrailMaps.cfm

    There's some really great maps available at the local shops and basic ones on the ridgalbraith.com site. It's all right next to Bellingham.

    If you do come here to ride, come this sunday. There's a 3:30 ride with the norco pros up at galbraith.

    I thought you might like to see these two videos. The second one is using my chesty mount GoPro and probably all of you have already watched it so skip that (if you do, the POV starts where his video is at the 40 sec mark). The first one is a local guy that made a video of the same trail but he took the time to shoot each section of the trail separately. It's a very good video, IMO. He stopped where the trail goes into clearcut but I bet that took him 3-4 hours just to shoot. Trail will have some logs removed probably this week (they were about 20' from it Friday) so it might be closed for a month or so while they work their way through and then we need to repair the trail. You'll note real NW riders use fenders My bike has those too. Otherwise you'll literally get mud in yer eye and your arse gets raw and I too refuse to wear bib shorts.

    Cool New Video someone made.
