    Great filming, superb dialogue, funny as hell. You are completely certifiable of course. I am completely in awe. It was over way too soon. Thank you for this terrific gift. I'm passing the link to all my friends.

    Now thats adventure riding. A whole new set of challenges. Not too many riders can say they had to deal with a frozen cornea. Well done. :clap

    That was a great feat in endurance. Glad you went with your heart and not your head. Thank you very much for going to such an effort and sharing it with us. Where to now, apart from a cholestrol check.
    Cheers.

    That was great...I still can't believe you could stay warm riding in those temperatures.

    Thanks for this. :clap

    Excellent film and editing, choice of tunes. This is what ADV is all about. Keep it up ! (If it's not too cold).

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

    Brokentooth, my hat's off to you! :clap:clap:clap

    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.

    Cheers!!!
