  • DSBC Spring Newbie Ride - "B" hard route Sunday Mar.20

    Coming up fast is the Spring Newbie Ride over at Tamihi. I am gonna ride the plated WR250f but dirt bikes are fine on this route. Maybe we gotta try for two laps this year eh! Who's in?

    For more info see
    So you wanna try the "Hard" Loop? What you can expect Entire route will be clearly marked with Yellow Arrows Very rough washed out Forestry Roads (some steep) Some very old Forestry Grades Lots of roots Some Ruts Lots of narrow single track Some narrow single track on steep off camber (dont fall down-hill)

    I'm thinking about it. of course we know the "hard" route is easier than sandman, other than the mud. prob swap the trials tire for the knobby. No 700 lb KTM this year?

      Just keep telling yourself that, haha. Ya, ditch the trials tire as even with a few rain free days coming up there will be some mud and fresh roots.

      The KTM is in need of some TLC and I am having too much fun on the Yami!

        Good times and two laps for me at the DSBC Newbie ride.

        Here is a vid of the climbs about half way around on lap one plus the descent down Dashboard Trail.




        Here is the last trail and the gravel road that takes you back to the Staging area.

            The newbie ride was a lot of fun! but.. like Dave said easy as sandman other then the mud that was actually clay.. I rode 2.5 laps on the hard loop on a 98 xr650l with dual sport tires wasn't to bad.

            Then I had clay try to lay the pass on me in the mud on the 501 only to lay it down like a SQUID!!

            650 out!

                  I'm confused, clay went down on the 501, or you went down on the 650, or clay went down on....never mind

                    OK there Scott Summers.

                    "Clay, do you think it's OK to ride the kids loop to the parking lot?"

                    "No Curtis, not unless you have kids."

                    Anyways, Scott Summers is knocking little girls off their pink quads on the kids loop to beat me to the parking lot which was 5 feet away. Meanwhile I slipped while standing there watching in awe as Summers dirt tracks around the kids loop.

                    That 501 did 5 PN races last year. Are you up to the challenge on the big bore? O rare you just going to stand there holding your bike up like that?

                    Because I had to explain to McNutt Kid who Scott Summers is there may be a couple of more kids that don't know:

                      You might want to look into using the 'medium' field of view setting (I don't think the Session offers narrow FOV) -- you might like it better than the super wide angle since it looks more natural (less fisheye effect). I think with the Session you can select the medium FOV only at the 720P and 1080P recording settings.

                      Give it a shot!

                        Thanks Moto. I had it at 720s 60 W and now I will try 720 100 M. Medium FOV at 100 frames a minute should give a better action shot too.

                        SuperView captures a tall perspective (4:3), which allows you to capture more of yourself and your surroundings in the shot. The content is then dynamically stretched to a wide perspective (16:9) for full, immersive widescreen playback. Learn more here.

                          You should not see an option for 100fps unless you have (mistakenly) set your camera to PAL (should be NTSC). You are likely going to see higher FPS at 720P, not 1080P, but that is just an assumption on my part (I have not owned that camera). Try selecting 720P with the narrower FOV and then look at 1080P with the narrower FOV and go with the one that gives you more FPS (guessing it will be 720P).

                            good thing you know something about vid Moto. I checked and 100 FPS is slo-mo. I changed it to 1080 60 M now and will see how it looks at higher resolution and medium FOV.

                            That "s" superview setting might have been part of the problem too. I will be shooting some Powell River trails this weekend and will soon find out!

                              I always found the best set up for action vids such as what your doing Bryon is 720-60fps
