My 2005 Tiger was my very favoritest bike of all time. RIP, ol' girl.

wish it was detachable ....sigh

Loved the video, kinda cheesy acting but amazing cinematography (Even for the KLR camera rig)

Sure the bikes really weren't completely stock in the movie but they definitely started with the right bike!

Love the paint job on the bikes. One thing is for sure, they spent BIG money to produce that vid. i would love to hear about the prep on these bikes.

Awesome video. If I got a Triumph, I would not even come close to pushing bikes limits!

LOL! Yeah, that's what I make all my new bike purchase decisions upon. A promo video for riding gear with uber-talented riders on highly modified bikes (see laundry list of aftermarket brands at end). On top of that, no info was provided on how many takes and how much maintenance/repair was required to finish that clip.


'bout the only thing you can conclude from that video is the bikes and riding looked 'rad.'

No matter what brand of bikes were used in that shoot, anyone that buys a new bike based upon that is completely out of their mind...but to each his/her own.

That said, i enjoyed the video from an entertainment standpoint and always appreciate seeing that kind of skill. I'll bet the riders had more that a few sore muscles after they finished

Excellent video. Editing was wonderful. Probably went through a lot bikes and parts to get that done so well.

Impressive that ICON and supporting manufacturers spent the money to get it put together! Would have been blast to work on.

Some of the protection was from Altrider, The Icon guys were at the "Ride the Hoh" event last month and previewed the movie at the campground. One of the riders did break his leg scouting it out. that part is true. It was also shot only in Oregon.
