New Dual Sport

I picked up a 2010 Husaberg FE390 from a buddy. It will hopefully fill the gap between the Gas Gas woods weapon and the big 950. I'm thinking it will be the bike I use on dual sport rides where I ride from the house. It will also be the bike I take out west to ride in the Rockies since it has fuel injection.

Look for this bike in an upcoming video.

GoPro Hero4 Session

I need to make a mockup of one of these.

If it fits my dual sport helmet better than my Hero3 I may have to get one. Dimensions are 1.5"x1.5"x1.5". Specs should be similar to a Hero4 Silver (minus 4k).

Durty Dabbers National Dual Sport

I finally got to ride the Durty Dabbers dual sport. I'd been wanting to make it to this one for years. We had a great RCR group there with a mix of newbies and veterans of the event. My overall experience with the event was great. Despite a downpour shortly after arriving at the campground, the weather the rest of the weekend was awesome. The food available was great. The routes were well marked and laid out. The roads and trails were challenging! I left feeling very beat up but it was very very fun. I hope to do this one again next year!

The routes cover some ground:
