One of the best travel videos I've ever come across. Thanks for surviving in order to bring this to us.

This is sick! This is great! Wicked! Foolhardy! Crazy!
Did I mention crazy?

Brokentooth, my hat's off to you!

By the way, is it just me, or did the movie sound like an early Warren Miller ski flick?

For over 20 years I have been building northern trails and roads and spending my winters in northern Alberta and Saskatchewan. Your movie shows them better than any pictures I have ever taken ... the fresh trails with the exposed muskeg; the ice; ... the broken ice.

In February I was in Churchill, a little north of you. I had a new King Air, with a well stocked bar, not an open motorcycle. Makes me feel a little bit gulty.

In all my years up there, it never even occurred to me to drive it on a bike!

My hats off to you. Amazing feat; fantastic editing; a great little movie.

Thank you for sharing Canada's north, which so few get to see ... and for personalizing the amazing people who live there.

You coulda been kilt. Or at least kilted (which you were).

1. You're out of your mind. But in a good way.

2. The women singing over the end credits--wow. Who?

3. Did I mention you're out of your mind?
