Talking UniGeezer: "It's all 'downhill' from here!"

First time riding at Chumash trail in Simi Valley. Very technical in spots, and steep. Managed a few good drops, seen at the end of the video. (the loud "pop" or shot heard at the very end...not sure what that was!)

Also some funny hiker/biker comments--one guy used an "NC-17" adjective in his excitement, lol! Then some bails-after the creds. Would really appreciate your comments!

(Shot with my Canon HV30 so it's excellent quality!)

Good thing that bush stopped your fall on the last bail. Very entertaining us usual.

Some of those rocky sections looked quite gnarly !!! Rocky sections like that scare me a little just because I know that if I bail and hit the ground it's going to hurt. Self-preservation instincts kick in Nice riding, enjoyed watching.

Hi terry great riding. Whenever i watch your videos i have to remind myself that it is like watching my Dad doing these trails (you are of a similar age)- then your commitment and skill to the sport sinks in. You have inspired me to make more vids, maybe even with a UCC? I have graduated from University and have part time work so i have more time on my hands to get out and put things together. Keep it up. Always enjoy the riding in your vids.

Mark

You really are doing some awesome riding. Starting to get really smooth man. Nice to know that some of you old geezers could keep up with the youth out there

Really though, pretty good video, but would have liked a little bit more in there.
Its cool though, with all the videos you have its not like I ever be forced to watch the same one twice

Thanks Sam, but I made a mistake; it was actually RFK, not JFK.

Haha yeah I almost got skewered when I landed chest-first onto a sharp tree branch, (out of frame) but luckily it was loose and not attached to a tree! I did cut my lip though it could've been worse.

Thanks, yeah I'm trying to ride those extra technical sections faster each time, but it is scary to bail on that rough stuff at high speeds!

(I will reply to the more comments a little later...I have to get a piano ready for a customer! )

so I got to 2:32 and thought the music was a bit like nightmarish elevator music, and I'm wondering how hard it is to ride on dry surfaces? So I stopped.
I await your feedback before I expend another 2 minutes to find out.

The Oneal Underdog for example http://picture.yatego.com/images/48f...0/underdog.jpg

The music is the orignal RUSH song, "Tom Sawyer", an all-time rock classic! I used the instrumental version so Youtube would be less likely to "mute" it, and so far they haven't. Not sure what you meant about your other statement, but you should watch the rest; some good drops, the hiker/biker comments are funny, and then there's some good bails at the end.

That explains it - Elevators use instrumentals, but not Rush music

My comment is just observing how grippy the surfaces are.
I suppose I'll have to watch the rest... you always save the best for last.
