BC Supermoto Video
Thanks to Ken Noakes for this BC Supermoto Video from the Aug 21 race including some fast laps with John Brown & Tim Masters flying his DRZ over the berm. (He later put his plate back on & rode home!) http://youtu.be/z-1LRE0Onb4

Thanks for taking the time to do that video! Because you were there, I kicked myself for not having a helmet cam on as I left... I wouldn't do the accent justice, so please insert your thickest French-Canadian accent in for the fellow as I describe...
As I was leaving Tradex, I had to wait for a lone Harley to pass before I could pull out. I turned left as he passed and followed only a short distance before he started slowing... and slowing... and slowing... right in the middle of the lane. When he came to a stop, I pulled alongside of him. He was an old fellow, and his face was like a cabbage patch doll plumping out the sides of his helmet. Before I got by him, he says while looking at the cleanup crew tearing down the track, (insert that accent) "Are they packing it in for the day?" I said, sounding a little melancholy, "Yeah, they're all done for the day." He replied, "O-K" in that way you Canadians can sing those two letters, "Have a good day."
What a PERFECT ending to a supermoto promotional video that would have been! Picture the credits starting, then interrupted by that scene before continuing! What a missed opportunity.
If someone is there for the last round, I have some ideas for staged footage that would be fun to do and great to have for a video.
