Thank you. It was my first time using a go pro... I just got it a few days before we left to Colorado. My wife took these picture's with her cell phone as I rode through the mountain goats on Mt. Evans. The picture with the white one's is on the top of the mountain. I'm not sure which is big horn sheep or mountain goat's,? maybe someone out there knows. :?:

Wonderfully done! Great choice of tunes, too. Especially the Bad Company. That song has always felt Gordon Lightfooty to me and fit perfect with the vid. Only thing I didn't like about the whole thing was the chemtrails and the paint job on that MX helmet. :P Other than those, great job!!

Great video. I was never interested in a video camera before. I think I want one now.

Spent a lot of time in the Snowy Range in southern WYO.

Any of the video there?

Thank you, I'm glad you liked the video and music. Chemtrails ?... maybe in Vietnam :( . "Contrails" (condensation trails) yes :) . Anyway, when I bought that helmet (two years ago) I was looking for a full face helmet with a beak or visor that didn't cost $600. Speed and Strength called that a dual purpose / adventure helmet, $200. Now I see there are regular full face helmets with beak's/visor's that aren't so expensive. The paint scheme is called "lunatic fringe"... remember the song by Red Rider ? it's very busy and gives my wife something to look at if she gets bored which is not too often. ;) Thank you again

Hero 3+ silver $300 + $30 sim card. Go Pro has a free editing software program you can download. I made my own selfy stick. Thanks for the nice compliment.

That seals it!!! I'm saving up for a ride to the Rockies with my wife for next year. I've been through many times in auto or semi's, but always wanted to on a bike. Thanks so much for this share!! Lots of 2 lane. Nice job. :D :D

Thank you for the nice reply's everyone. :D Next is the Black Hills of South Dakota for two days (this weekend) now that "Sturgis" is over (been there done that twice back in the 80's). It's going to be in the 70's and sunny with twisty's every where ! I'll try to post a shorter video next week sometime.

Awesome video, loved it. I like how you mounted your camera on the side of your helmet rather than the top, much better perspective. I've ridden to Estes park but never South toward Durango. They say the million dollar hwy is really something..
