    Just think about the linkage. Because of the quality of that sequence, in slo-mo, they're gonna use that footage for quite a bit, I suspect. And every time, you get free advertising. :D

    Dunno how much business it will generate, but what the hell, consider it bonus exposure from LPR Inc., all part of the full meal deal our people like to bring to the customer. :deal

    That was an unexpected treat for me as well, I didn't know Robin was sitting there as we were chatting. Thanks, Dad!


    I've long thought that the TT would generate some fantastic stories for RallyRAIDio, I just don't have any connections to that community. :lurk

    While you're there pop in to Knighter's place and interview him about Dakar'14:deal
    (It's only a short boat ride from Pyndon's place.)
    He's been quite vocal about being there next year!
    Pyndon for HRC WC role in 2014!:clap I bet Pyndon would have a few 'disagreements' with the HRC bigwigs about 'bike setup'.:lol3

    This is Knighter's EWC bike ready to ship to SA.

    Member Wideload is a marshal so we can be sure of one interview. The riders are certainly more accessible than Moto GP its just getting the right moment. Your real battle would probably be getting past Radio TT who like most things on the Island probably have some monopoly for radio interviews :D You might wake up with the kippers if you tread on too many toes!

    Seriously I would look to approach the non UK based riders and focus in on them so the folks back home get that ringside seat that your recordings do. The TT is similar to the Dakar in that it attracts the amateur with a dream and sometimes their stories are the most interesting. If you could get Manx telecom on board to help with the mobile charges that could make it a lot cheaper, but if you are coming over I guess you would be recording it then uploading it. Manx telecom could help with a dongle.

    Sounds like a fun project let me know if you need any logistics input. I have a couple of connections over there that might be useful :evil

    One minute your riding in the sunshine, the next in thick cloud doing 10mph.

    Just for clarification, I have no plans to make it to the TT personally (yet). It's on the bucket list, though.

    I absolutely think the privateer aspect of it lends itself to a similar approach as the Dakar call ins. If anyone here knows a privateer who wants to share their story, let me know.

    Finally finished catching up to this thread, though I'm still in Fiambala in the F5irehose thread.

    Congrats Pyndon!!!!!!! It has been said before but bears repeating, the call-ins with Packmule and the constant efforts of the F5 crew to turn up every piece of media available make ADVrider the go-to source for information (and conspiracy theories) for the stay-at-home Dakar Dreamers.

    Thanks especially to Pyndon for taking the time to share with us the highs(ide) and (fork)lows of the experience. You took us for a ride and I've never had so much fun riding bitch before!!! :lol3
