Eh? Crazy Idea

I am a big fan of all the Bruce and Dana Brown films (...Summer and & ...Sunday). Also enjoy watching "The Longway ' movies) (yes they do wine a bit) I love the scenery and the different countries.
This crazy idea I have is to make a film visiting some of the "Endless Summer) places and other great places to see on a bike. Taking 2 KTM 450 EXC's or 690's and following the summer around the world. I figure by using 450/690 size bikes, it would be easier to transport and allow access to more places. I thinking doing island hopping would be cool in the tropics. Thinking my wife and I would do the riding and some of the filming. It would be great to have some one who is a pro at filming to help out.
Any thoughts? Interest in seeing cool places to ride?

Re movie

Great idea - do it....but just make sure the corny commentary and predictible jokes is the same style - that's what makes his films so enjoyable!

Question

Great idea!

Just a thought, what about choosing lower maintenance bikes? Those KTM are great but I think you may want more reliability than exciment/performance. Finding specific parts in places such as SA is not that easy.

You never know

Sending the script/outline for the movie out to a film company.
You may be seeing a movie about 2 guys looking for the ultimate dual sport location, sometime in the next year or so!!
