Some nice pics Wes  :thumleft:

shot, they're just really screen-caps from the vids I shot - don't have time to edit the clips right now. Did a quick colour touchup in photoshop. You actually get better shots if you just leave the helmet cam on photo mode - lekker 5MP shots...

Wes, I am impressed by those photos take from a helmet video camera.  The colour is particularly nice (I appreciate you Photoshopped them) and the resolution fine.

As I said these are screencaps, not actual photos - i.e. I literally just hit "print screen" with the file open in media player... I could have probably done better to actually export individual frames using a video editor...

I agree though, the quality is really good... but this camera also takes lekker photos

here's one of the un-touched up screen caps, slightly resized:

Hey dudes.  Looks like a really cool trip.  Glad you all made it back in one piece. 

So, were do you hide those vids riders hitting the deck…

Yea yea.  I think that’s a lame excuse to hide the evidence…

I can't believe you nutters rode the AR in the rain , it rained quite heavily in the night  :o

Looks like this was a good ride to miss , my bike likes to lie down at the best of times , no need to put rain and mud into the equation as well  >:D

Glad you had fun  :thumleft:
