XR Sundays

I don't know much about how an action cam works so when a friend of mine John offered me to take an Isaw Advance out for a test ride I was keen to try it out.
This is the mid range Isaw and it took a few knocks along the way but seems to be fairly resilient to branches and so on. As you will see from the vid the camera
angle was a bit off but it still gives you a good idea of the great trails on our doorstep. Area of the ride is Inanda Valley just east of Inanda dam, riding with my buddy
DG on his bling XR. Here's a bit of YouTube footage of the ride. Still gotta sort out the YouTube upload and quality options.....

New weekend and new ride. Same same but this time with Craig on his 690 who was battling with a broken hydraulic clutch on his Katoom. Slightly different route.
The XR - as reliable as always...

A wimpish river crossing through shallow waters by Craig and I ensued. No one was hurt in the process and all the fish survived.
Still playing with the new to me Isaw action cam and and there are a few things that stand out. Any original files are best viewed
on your Samsung large screen TV in the lounge or on a small format laptop Mac type with a good screen. My 23" desktop screen
does not do justice to the original footage and loading up to YouTube just makes matters worse. Here is a the link to the river
crossing - hope to upload some kiff high speed footage once I get the YouTube thing sorted out.

Was in a bit of a hurry going home on a solo mission trying out the Isaw and my XR. Got some work to do on the camera angles.
 Aircooled all the way.
