I don't mind the driving footage as long as it is used appropriately fill the vid. I mean, vids should encompass the whole experience. But really, I don't get my rocks off too much on the vids and only watch them when I am hanging with my fellow yak'n geeks. I mean, I'd just rather go do stuff, and I think sometimes watching vids can breed some weird complexes and cause us to loose touch with what the sport is all about.
Why not go for a run instead of watching a vid so we can take the next beating. Or perhaps develop skills in other sports, and even if those sports aren't our true passion we can at least just call it cross training. Or read a book, or play chess, or respond to threads... You know... All I'm saying is there's better things to do then watch vids and be groupies. It just promotes this icon worship that totally warps our reality into missing the point that we are those people and with enough direction can probably do much of what we watch.
But it cool to watch the carnage and huge drops. And it can be motivating, though for me it just seems discouraging because I lack the resources to go to the super cool places seen in most vids and would rather save the 30 bucks for my next trip. I just won't pay for one. Ramble....yaydyayadydyadyaydayd,.,..
