    I would happily post my gimbal setup but honestly I can't recommend it. I've broken so many!

    Just got back from Moab! Great place to beat the chit out of a bike! Love it!

    Out to Rockstacker back to Ahab? Never thought of that loop. Always seem to drop into Jackson's i guess.

    Any low down on the Gimbal used? Golden footage!

    I wonder what POV camera was used? I am amazed at how stable and smooth the image is considering how much the bike is rattling and shaking.

    Just sayin' but... Actual soil is precious in those parts. Why do all those kickouts and scrub it all off?

    Ha! Don't worry. I temporarily broke my gimbal smashing it into the seat on said "bottom out testing" the following day. There are some excellent old school ankle testing drops all over Porcupine. And I did my best to find them all.

    This is what I told Fisher when he handed me the bike. https://youtu.be/4T2GmGSNvaM?t=118 He was less than pleased. Ha.
