Saw it on netflix too. Definitely worth watching. It has an "On Any Sunday" feel to it. It'll make ya wanna go ride Baja.

As far as Time Rider, Madhouse introduced that one to me about 5 yrs ago. Cheesy plotline, but entertaining desert riding footage; and if yer a fan of 80's dirtbikes (which I am--hey I ride a KLR after all), there's some pretty cool hardware in it.

Ineptizoid--you got it, it's a rear Kenda K761 mounted backwards on the front wheel. I prefer the handling of the K761 on the front over the old, hard, worn-out OEM tire, but I don't ride like a crazy.

Someday I'll go for a dual-sport, but right now I'm trying to win wife over for a Ural.

We have alway laughed our asses of when the bad guys start the Honda by "kicking it"..... Ive seen experts faint form exhaustion trying to kick a stalled four stroker....it goes on and on ,,, but I do like the "helmet cam" shots in the beginning.

Of course it pays no attention to the time travel basics but who cares, "its Swan, no body rides like Swan"...

I agree that you make it look easy! By the way, I took the Katoom to Jones Swamp the other day and it had NO MUD!!! Just lots of three feet deep EASY SAND!!! :-) I went in from the HWY 98 entrance and rode all over. I even made it to Gulf Beach HWY. It reminded me of the 70's when me and my buddy lived back there tearing up the trails...
