    Gotta say I love the video... what are you shooting it with?

    and the editing is great! How much time did you put into putting those together?

    Cheers man. We use a GoPro Hero, a Canon SX230 and Lumix Superzoom Somethingorother.

    The videos take between 8 and 16 hours to edit. This last one took ages.

    Started following. I went to high school in Fort McMurray and worked up there for a few months. Good on you for not falling into the Fort Mac lifestyle. I hope the rest of the trip goes well.

    I'm saving up to do a similar trip next year.

    Cheers,
    Jim

    So we've realized that looking at absolutely everything takes a bit of time...
    We're still down in Mexico checking out some sweet ass continental divide mountain riding, and it's looking like a year isn't nearly enough to get to Brazil.

    It's interesting to meet other bikers on the road then to see that 2 weeks later they've moved onto 3 different countries.
    I prefer our way, slow and thorough.

    In any case, read all about it on our latest blog post!

    Hello. You're looking well today. Is that a new tie?

    Boy I wish I was mutha flippin' DUALSPORTING!

    Another healthy dose of KLR650 based goodness awaits you! Without intentionally sticking my head up my own arse and looking about inside, I would say the video is our best yet. If not, it's certainly the most motorbikey. And you like motorbikes right?

    We've spent the last few days hanging out here in Cartagena Colombia, writing up, and editing our videos, of the last couple of months of our travels through Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama.

    Get into it.
