WoW ckangaroo!! This vid and some of you guys's bikes blows away the old low-tech footage I found of me and my buddy with a couple of our first 2 strokes in it maybe 6-7 yrs. ago..lol.. Nice job!! Ive come a long way in bike-building since then!! Also.. the pics and vids can be a great source for ideas and when making repairs etc. Im new to the forum but im guessing this is the best place to post a video?? Oh and btw..is this video of yours actually like 10 hrs. long?? Ride on!!!✌

Thanks for the compliments. Some of my first videos were so shakey and poor vid quality that they were painful to watch. We have improved that a bit i hope?
The event depicted in that video was a 9 hour event and the ride itself was around 4.5 hours. I captured around 3 hours of footage from that event and compressed the day into a 25 minute video.
Enough to give people the gist of the event.

Hello guys and gals.Here is what I captured on the 3rd Scarecrow Ride. Just want to apologize to to the guys from Connecticut for not getting more coverage of their vintage rides. We had a wonderful mix of equipment this year and I failed to get that all on tape. Thanks my friend Darren for putting the video together for me. Ray and Heather you are the best host. Kurt and Jordan, I will see you next year for #4. Tom........we miss you man. Time for some catch up! A special thanks for my wife and Rays wife.

Roo, not sure with the new biz but we are gonna try to make it out next year. If I fly, gonna have to borrow a mb or build a cheapie while there.

That's actually kinda fun and always a great learning experience. Building one on the fly. Somebody always knows a workaround or better way to turn a wrench. Never fails. Always something cool to learn.

But, anyway. Hope to see ya next one!
