Have never had a close call. I'm constantly looking well beyond for any signs of dust anywhere possibly in the valley that could be coming my way. I can show you clips that aren't in that video where I'm on truly blind corners and you'll see me hugging the right side and going at a reasonable slow pace. I ride dirt bikes and have grown up knowing I'm going to loose the battle on a blind corner and the last thing I want to do is be the cause of someone else loosing. Everywhere in that video, even the beginning with the big rollers, I'm able to catch glimpses of the trail ahead and am looking for dust. I am taking the road into consideration, if it's glassy smooth I figure other traffic will likely be moving at a decent clip also and dust will be visable. In rougher sections where I know the "norm" aren't going to be running fast I realize dust is less likely to be spotted and I drive slower because of that. Also, you can kind of see the blue light on my dash? I've got 4 HID lights on a roof rack and both those and my headlights are on trying to make myself visable also.
On that particular run we caught up to a pair of UTV's on the trail and they eventually pulled over to let us pass. There was another truck behind me... I had 2 dirt bikes pass by me in a wash and I met a pair of jeeps head on in a tighter wash area but both the jeeps and me were going reasonable speeds to react without any issues. I just posted the faster stuff there's lots that's not fast like that because of lack of sight.
The one thing I do regret... I have helmets now but am not in the routine of wearing them. I need to be but they just weren't on my list to pack and I remember once I was out there that I didn't bring them. I want to start wearing the helmets all the time offroad so that I can get used to the sounds with them on. Any stupid little failure at those speeds could be ugly and even if the terrain is smooth having a steering bolt back out or wheel bearing let loose could get ugly fast. Before I take the truck out I do a pretty good once over on the entire suspension every time. Also everytime I stop on the trail I do a walk around to at least visually look everything over and do a steering wheel crank back and forth to make sure all the steering looks normal as well. It's no joke running those speeds so eventhough it might not look it on the video I do try my darndest to keep it as safe as possible. I don't want to kill myself yet and I really really really don't want to ruin someone else's day either!
I should edit up a couple of the more blind sections and you'll see that when I'm in the tighter washes or more narrow windy roads I'm not driving any faster then any stock vehicle really. There's even one spot where I stop and warn my friend who's behind me in his truck that we're coming into an area with some houses and even though it's pretty unlikely we'll see any other traffic that there is a chance and there's some blind hills so I give him a heads up so cause I was more familiar with the area then he is.
Also I have 5 point harnesses in the truck which are the ones with the strap between your legs. You can see the hit right at 2:42 where I kind of float up a little bit. They work great at keeping you in the seat! LOL
$40, black fuel door locking with the key. I think I've got the spare key too but will have to look at home. It's in good shape and works fine. Here's pictures of it on my jeep. First to show up with cash it's yours...
