There's a pig in the desert

Posted a video of another ride... this time I was with my buddy who has about 10 years more experience than me, he rides a KTM 950 SE as if it's a 450.

Took me into some very technical dunes, I was a bit out of my depth - dropped my XR650 a few times, came home minus a mirror and minus 2 front indicators. Learning experience...

Previous video (i think better quality) is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptx0oUGbm

That time was with a KTM 640, the KTM 950 and another 525. A lot of orange...

Awesome vid and music. Really felt like I was riding along !!

Made me feel real good as it is dark and cold in Northern Ontario, Canada. :crazy:

Cheers fellow XR rider!!

don't know the CD but the song is called One Step Too Far which kind of described the ride...

Really enjoyed that, thanks for sharing!

Very good music, and smooth editing...

Man, what a great vid. I actually am thinking about bailing out of work and going riding! I wish, but too much to do.

That looked like some sweet riding, with lots of soft sand. Great workout I am sure.

Can't remember the last time I passed some camels during a ride! Sweet. Thanks for sharing.

awesome ride video!! :crazy:

and i was wondering, does it hurt crashing on the dunes??

Not so far - I've dropped the bike many times (I've lost count) on the dunes, no pain or injuries - most times it's pretty slow speed. It's just embarrassing and irritating. My fastest get-off in the dunes was enough to bend the handlebars and I was fine.

I think it depends a lot on speed, I'm pretty slow on dunes. On the faster gravel stuff, it would probably hurt!

Thanks - yep, it's a workout.

I've only ever ridden in soft sand so I can't compare to rocks and stuff, but to me a hour ride feels like 12 rounds in a boxing ring. I never thought I'd start lifting weights to be able to ride better, but that's what I'm doing :crazy:

That is a huge tank! I thought my 4.6 gallon was heavy. I can imagine that if you fill it up, then the front won't like to stay on top of the sand.

Cool video, thanks for sharing!

Here is a quick clip out here in California. Check out the distance this thing travels in the air.

Hey, I just caught this one!:crazy::D:applause: Outstanding!!! Great music as well. Look at the wild camels. Real cool!:bonk:

Awesome video. What software did you use to edit/make the vid?
