Well I have been posting these in the Stinger's thread but they might get buried there. So I am starting a new thread in the proper area to get more exposure.

Here is my latest compilation from a solo ride I did on March 22 when everyone else was scared of a little precipitation. I labeled a couple of key areas to give people an idea of what to expect if they head out to the West Side Loop (further known as WSL) like grated road on North Territorial West of US23, Darwin Road detour from Dexter-Pinckney to McGregor where it is dirt. This is video 1 of 2. I had so much footage I had to split it into two videos:

And here are the other two I previously released from Boomer's Bike Nights:

Great music on the WSL video. And I'm still liking the GoPro angle, even better than the helmet cam. AND I think you guys should take me there next week. :D

Nice! The helmet cam was starting to make me seasick (maybe I wouldnt make a good crab fisherman, NG...) but the side mount was top notch.

I have to get some bigger SD cards so I can shoot more video at 720p/60fps and get some good smooth hi def action going.

dood i gave you the link for 16gb sdhc for $27.. skip a meal or two or stop smoking crack for 1/2 a day and you could get a couple fo sho..

and yes we will hit the west side loop very soon.. next week sounds great.. i think i know a couple of things wrong with helmet cam but inherently it is set up to fail because your head is constantly moving.. but i did find it is damn good for still shots.. i need to get some new velcro and adjust the angle a bit then see how it is.. i haven't given up hope on it yet.. the velcro was actually kind of shitty because i put it on the bike in 2 locations, then on the frankenstein mount and finally on the helmet.. so all adhesive properties ceased to exist.. that didn't help vertical movement like its supposed to.. and with no bikes in front there is zero perspective..

and aeryck PUHLEEZE find that plastic polish so i can fix the lens on the gopro..

part 2 of the WSL video is even better.. just have to put it together.. the roads start getting much better..

ya mud these videos were great there close (actually nothing near) to the real thing but it helps late at night when im to drunk to ride to watch something like this.

those roads out there are amazing though the other day was the first day i hit them by myself and was so much better than following some one. let me know when you guys head out that way im looking forward to those roads again.

Yeah yeah yeah, I'm just a lazy mofo who hasn't ordered them yet.

I'll look around for the plastic polish. Gotta find some super fine grit sandpaper too (2000 and 4000) to wetsand the lens to get most of the blemishes down to a uniform surface before you apply the polish.

Video # 4 is done. I took a little more time on this one and had the best video yet to work with. Not HD wise but just as far as really good roads.. Took me forever to pull all the pics off the video and narrow down what video to use.. There is just so much good video of the heart of the loop.. So its more of a highlight reel of the best part of that ride. I think it is the best video yet:

Next time you're out there find your way to this stretch of HRD. You can take Mast Road from N Territorial. You'll love it.

funny you should say that.. i was checking out mast road on the map when i was doing recon on google maps.. i just got a late start so i didn't have time to check it out..

also i posted all 4 links in my original post on page 1 of this thread and i will add new ones as i get them done there as well so they are easy to find..

There are a lot of ways to get there on decent roads. Take North Territorial all the way to 52, then 52 South to Waterloo/Island Lake back through Dexter. Or, go further south and bring Chelsea Dexter Road back to Dexter. If you don't want to run 52, take Stofer/Werkner down to Island Lake Road.

Mudpuppy

Yes I passed Island Lake Road as well..

Do your research on Island Lake. Some of it is paved, some dirt. I think by and large the dirt part is west of Werkner, but I wouldn't swear to it.
