2 years of me and my friends personal "fails" video (in HD)

Recommended Posts

Here's a link to 2 years or so of wipeouts and crashes that me and my buddies caught on our Gopro cameras. Nothing too extreme but some funny stuff in there. New to thumpertalk but this seems like the appropriate place to post.

Its mostly in HD, thanks for checking it out and ride safe.

Hey thanks for the kind words everybody. MN is cold and nasty in the winter so we are forced to adapt and seek fun in less conventional ways than the summer. I like making this stuff to remember good times but its fun to share it too, so thanks for checking it out.

Nice video, I agree the winter stuff looks fun. I am just to big of a sissy to get my old fat butt out in the cold...

Yeah pipe burn :lol: Unfortunately or fortunately we didn't catch that crash on video. (I always forget to record the big ones) The guy who got burned is on his 2nd year riding ever. He was going around a right hand turn hot and the bike slid out. He started to come off the seat and didn't let go of the bars, trying to save the bike. His left leg slid across the rear tire as the bike went down and the knobbies sucked his leg all the way up to the pipe.

I was right behind him and saw the whole thing. I though his leg would be ****ed up from the tire but the pipe is what screwed him. We tried and tried to rip his leg out of there but it was completely stuck. He even had on thick carharts, but it burned the hell out of him for about a solid minute before we got the bike up and his leg out. He rode back to the house like a boss, and found he had quite a bit of skin stuck to the inside of his carharts. It was gross.

How long did it take to get the submarine out of the pond? Same thing happened to a buddy about 3 years ago and I think it took the two of us over 2 hours to get it out of the muck and then the fun of trying to get all of the water out; priceless!!!

:lol:

It took a little bit to get the bike out but it wasn't the worst fall through we had. Went in with the bike up to my waist before and had a hell of a time getting it out and froze my balls off. We got that on gopro but of course something got corrupted in the file before I could edit it, probably water :lol:

Oh man that was funny! :) I think what also made it so enjoyable was the fact that during and after the crashes i wasn't all cringing at the possibility of you all going to the hospital. The woods sections with your buddy on the CRF made me realize the enjoyment I get out of riding with my buddies! That very subtle "There ya go" @ 2:29 has to be the best!!! Thanks for sharing! :lol:

Awe thanks dudes. I live in Stanchfield MN, which is in Isanti county just north of Cambridge. About an hour and fifteen north of the twin cities. The RM is a 95 and bored (correct spelling?) to a 144 by Eric Gorr. Flywheel weights, revalved and all that fun candy stuff.

CCC4 - Thanks a lot man. That is kind of how I approach our riding videos. I'm never gonna even be half as wild as Travis Pastrana but we will have just as much fun, and record and edit it into something other people might get a kick out of. Or at the very least when we are old and crippled, we can have some memories of the good times. A day off and some tight woods stuff is just heaven as far as I'm concerned. Thanks again, prolly the best comment I have ever gotten on a video ever.

Boxcarwilly- I have a pretty cool track at home here in MN, 40 acres. I'll put up a tour video I made of the yard later in the week or something.
