    I'll be doing Elbert for sure, possibly the Bierstadt to Evans hike, depending on time and if I do meet up to ride. So camping near the trail head of either place. Cannot wait!

    I used the "GoPro Quik". I tried recording yesterday at 4k and the video was shaky. I did some googling and found the GoPro 5 (which I got) has no image stabilization for 4k, only 1080p and below, so I'll be sticking to that as the video looks quite clear to me. Maybe you can try reducing the resolution and see if it helps.

    Maybe Bubba can show us a video. He has the most recent GoPro 7:drewl:

    Mad MD, did you mount it using the suction cup mount? It looks great. Any enclosure, or just the stock open holder?

    Just the stock open holder and a flat adhesive mount I got from BestBuy. I'm thinking of using a lanyard and using that to attach to the side mirror just in case.

    It's official: I won't be able to take a long ride this year as I had hoped to. You all have fun and enjoy the adventure.

    • So, can we get a shout out on who, what and when we are riding? Igrok you are coming in on Friday and leaving Sunday night which is a short trip home? A.M. May hit us to ride along. Mad doc are you planning on what day to leave Colorado? Strang Doc, Are you still in? Gregindenver are you in?
    • I am in from June 7th Friday with Mad Doc arriving later in the evening, settling in and going to eat and drink. Wake up Saturday (This needs to be discussed as far as time and route;-) and have good long riding route that day and a shorter route Sunday IMO but again up to debate. Then Mad Doc and I heading home depending on Mad Doc Monday late afternoon. Due to the miles plus and a excepted hangover and frequent stops.
    • With A.M., Mad Doc and myself we could go into Utah Monday the 10th and Hit a day of great Utah riding on the way home with A.M. or anyone else since she knows the area better than I and only have a couple of hours backtracking for to get back to her Colorado home base for her previous engagements. But again that is up to A.M, Mad Doc and myself to arrange.
    • 4 Weeks, I have to return my Olympia riding pants do to faulty snaps, get them back and altered since I am short. Get the bike in for the front end wobble at above 90mph that I just found about.
    • Let's get everyones phone #s in with a P.M. so we can talk a week prior. Mad Doc and I are good. I think the routes and ride times will be a good conversation over beer and food Friday Night. Personally, I don't think that we can go wrong with any route unless the weather is an issue. And I trust a Coloradoan with routes.:)

    Ok here is my Short of a Gopro Hero 7 Black mounted on the left upper cowling with the GoPro suction cup rated at up to 150mph. The Youtube video really does not show the clarity of the video. Strange. I play it on my laptop vs. this and it is really night and day! ;-)

    WHO, WHAT, WHEN:

    Igrok (Andrew) / 2014 pearl VFR / Friday - Sunday:

    I'm taking Friday off, so I will leave Friday morning. its a 5.5 hr drive to Delta for me, so I should get there around 4:30 in the afternoon? I like the idea of getting settled in at Sunset Valley and then finding a place for food and beer. I'll have route options printed out for everyone and we can discuss over food. I'll ride Saturday and Sunday, but will need to head toward the house after lunch on Sunday.

    My buddy Chad will more than likely be joining us as well; he rides a 2002 VFR (red).

    I'll PM everyone my number. ESAK, I understand you are riding in from Kansas - do you know when and what route? We could possibly link up to ride out to Delta together.

    I had the same experience. It's so clear on my laptop, but looks much lower quality when exported. I'll check to see if there's any solution out there. Maybe it might say something in the manual. I got a used GoPro 5 so it didn't come with any. Maybe there'll be some online, I'll have to check.

    You need to change the compression when you compile the video.

    That is up to you Doc, What time do you work at on Monday. I am guessing normal job hours like starting in the morning. So let me know and we can also talk about it when we are down there.

    I looked up and see that there are a few bars close to the campsite and it looks like both Uber and Lyft function in Delta. So we could settle in and park the bikes, gear and then head to the bar on Friday night and get some bar food, beer, whiskey, cocktails. Go home safe and Ride a great ride on Saturday and settle in for some better food Saturday night for a farewell dinner. Then take a short ride Sunday ( for those that survive Friday & Saturday night) and part ways that afternoon to get everyone home. I for one is up to looking at accommodations in Utah Sunday night and taking a day on Monday if A.M and Mad doc want to join along for a day of Utah's national parks. If not I need to know A.S.A.P due to pricing and availability. So A.M., Doc let me know. My only complaint and I will call the campsite is that I see that they do not show showers. I guess they are mostly R.V so they have it. I will be very pissy and groggy if they do not. But, I see that they have a pool. So if need be I hope that they do not kick me out for just jumping in and lathering up!;-) OH AND COFFEE! LOTS of it needs to be close. God help you all while riding with me!;-)

    I am not available for your June trip. My original post was about making it over Memorial Weekend, as I am not able to make it in June. You guys have fun and ride safe.
