    :nortonI can't add much that hasn't aready been said but "Wow what an awesome adventure"
    I don't think the Leopard print is a good match, I liked the Gun though.

    Keep on Riding. Keep on filming. I thoroughly enjoyed it what a way to spend two weeks in March.

    Cheers, :freaky:clap:clap:clap:clap

    I've been lurking the forum for some time now, and I don't really like posting just to say "hey thats great" not that it's bad in any way. But prefer just to (read) peoples adventures without the clutter and my intentionwas to not have my first post on this forum as a "hey that's great":D

    But anyhow just have to say you've got balls, ok they were probably all shriveled up and went to hiding during your trip. But that was amaizing and just shows that you don't have to go somewhere exotic to find extreme when you live in Canuckistan... and espectially in winter. :deal

    Thanks for sharing your adventure! :clap

    I love ride reports, however i NEVER watch the video versions for some reason they never hold my interest. However, this one I didn't even fast forward on.

    The worst part is how most people will not even comprehend how dangerous\cold those northern winter rides are. When your hands are literally unable to move after 30 seconds when not in gloves, everything becomes very hard and dangerous.

    Glad you made and, ugh make more!

    Felt the same way with @ddeitz

    Never watched the videos, but I just couldn't shut it down. Amazing stuff.

    I've been thinking to move to Canukistan to live another life; but I immediately erase my thoughts once I watched your video.

    Cheers to your balls of iron.

    When I was riding down in Arizona a few winters ago, I was telling one of the locals I met and rode with how lucky he was that he could ride all year. He just kinda laughed and asked if I'd ever been to Tucson in the summer? ....only the extreme riders ride in the summers there cause it's just too damn hot. I have a feeling you wouldn't last long in that heat bt.

    Mind you your fingers wouldn't be quite so WHITE!!! :lol3

    I don't know what to say......that was an absolutely fantastic ride report video, one of the best I've ever seen. The emotions one goes through just watching this, I can't imagine what emotions one would go through actually living it!

    As others have posted, you need to provide a sound track list. There was a guitar solo in the first video at 10:55, I must know who and what this was.
