    WOW!!!

    but the rider to the tight of the camera appears to be slowing down just fine. The rider that nails the trailer looks like he came blowing up from behind...and shot right between his riding partners...........DUMBSHIT!!!! :eek1 :huh

    I'm not saying he desrves what he got, but when things start bunching up in front of you, it's not time to power-on!!! :deal

    Mad camera skills, too.

    That's such a cool form of racing, rather like Autocross for cars in the USA.

    Okay, on one hand that is a cheesy commercial for a cheap-o gear company, but on the other it's an epic ride movie through some exotic locations. There are a lot of resources behind making that movie! I mean: helicopters, camera rigs... Some great shots and editing in there (for the riding sequences anyway, the whole "secret agent" thing is pretty bad), and they are thrashing those Triumphs. I wanna go play!

    Sweet vid. But why is Dakar in the title?

    I guess that it's because it has nothing to do with africa anymore, the race is called the same, but it does not have nothing to do with paris or dakar anymore :norton

    That was worth the half an hour... lots of very impressive big bike riding.

    LOL, yes, they sure are giving those Triumphs a good beating. I like the desert sequence when you see there are not one but two little yellow idiot lights on the dash. You can practically hear it whimpering.

    That was all in Oregon? I've never been there, but the "rainforest" looked a little too coniferous to me :lol3 Where are the dunes and desert riding scenes shot?

    The dunes look like Florence area and the desert is Steens area and Alvord flats. The rain forest looks like Tillamook forest in the wet season. Snow may be out of Bend somewhere.
    Someone in here may know the exact locations.

    No, not quite. Urban riding was Portland but unless Icon is lying for some unexplained reason, here are the locations listed on the intro frame for each of the "sections":


    Rain Forest: Pantalian Mountains, Costa Rica
    Desert: Alta Barbina, Brazil
    Snow: Palatripos, Argentina

    Maybe they took a little creative liberty, or maybe Icon really does have special agents disposing of nuclear waste from a crashed satellite. :lol3

    I googled all those places, and I admit my google-fu is weak, but I couldn't find any info about them.

    LOL! I got pwned with the fake locales. Suits me well! :rofl

    Good to see the nuclear waste got properly disposed off, at least!

    Snow scenes were in the Cascades outside of Bend, OR. I also saw Steens Mtns. and Alvord Desert. The coast sure looked like the Oregon coast and the "jungle" looked like the Oregon/Washington coast range.
