Do you have camera cord dangling when you put your helmet on and then plug it in when you mount the bike? Do You travel with several memory sticks?

    Sorry for all the questions, but I know Zilch about having a recorder on a bike and you really have inspired me.
    Take a look at different mounting options presented well at: http://www.pashnit.com/more/cameramount.htm. Included is the helmetcamera.com option I use. The website there provides a good explanation with visuals.

    To be sure, helmetcams have their pos/negs. Take a look at the options and PM me with any questions. Would be happy to help out.

    Incredible....I am a new rider...bought an 04 1150R Silver on 4/2/05. I already have 2300 miles on it. I live in Middle Tennessee and love the area where you rode. The musical scores are fantastic. I am 42 and have always wanted a bike. Watching your rides do bring tears and smiles since I am really loving this new hobby/lifestyle. I got to ride through the Smokies heading to the Ga. Mtn. Rally, and get to go back next week. Riding out West would be a thrill of a lifetime. Thanks for letting us 'be there'.

    By the way, what do people do to listen to music? Ear buds like Ipods? I like the music ideas...I have XM in my car....thanks for any music ideas...

    Thanks Steve. Got it all book marked. I'm going to start exploring the options and will let you know how it goes. Thanks again.

    As a new BMW owner I've found this forum very helpful, but rarely have I read a series of posts which have been so inspiring. Particularly the videos. I have family who used to live in that part of the world, and reading your posts and watching the videos brought back so many memories of how beautiful Utah and area can be.

    Thank you so much.

    Check out this thread http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/showthread.php?t=1706 for a few options. Plus you can do a Search from the header bar for more options. Me personally, I have an AutoComm with a MixIt connected to an iPod and an XM SkyFi on my RT. But I love music.

    Steve, everyone has said it all, it is all great! Thank you!

    As a music lover, I think you should have credited each song properly just so we wouldn't have to ask you 5 times (and I was curious so I could obtain them)!

    I am in Indianapolis - do you know Tim and Linda Balough, Hoosiers relocated to your part of the mountains?

    Thanks again - can't wait for your web site!

    Much appreciated everyone. Nice memories only two wheels can provide. FWIW, thought I'd respond and mention I processed another vid of the trip. Shortly after the day 4 video of Grand Staircase Escalante, I recorded another day 4 vid... Utah 12 from Boulder to Torrey. If interested, the link is below. Accompanying 70's tune "Another Park, Another Sunday" somewhat appropriate.

    Thanks again for this particularly excellent travelogue--especially this most recent installment. I'm heading to Torrey for the first time on Friday and now know exactly what to expect from the 12.

    Keep posting!

    Here's one of the onboard ride vids...
    Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument Streaming Video.

    I've seen pics before but never a video of this ride or area. Enjoy the curves, scenery, and appropriate (imho ) accompanying soundtrack.

    Here's the video of yesterday's ride, accompanying the images already posted...

    Wolf Creek and Trout Creek Pass - Streaming Video

    So, a helmetcam for the GS. The head is very stable compared to the thrashing the bike takes. Minimal to no vibes. An example... the GS going above timberline to Breckenridge on a dirt/rock road... http://www.farson.com/video/gsboreas.wmv.

    so FWIW if interested in an armchair ride ...

    Hey BT... Thanks. Good to see the memories again. It was great ride. FWIW, I've put the finishing touches on a motorcycling Colorado book, sending it to the publisher a few weeks ago. 175 new onboard, online videos are a part of the project. They will be at a companion web site later this year.

    Steve
