    Unless I am mistaken, views in an embedded version (like here) don't show up, so that's probably why it seemed like no one was watching. Thanks for getting them back up. I was very sad when they went down in the middle of my watching.

    Glad they are back, pheeeeeew. I better make a copy of em before they get lost again.

    Someone asked if we have any other ride reports... video type on here.

    I was wondering that myself.

    I know for sure I'm going to start recording my rides and file em for future generations, just in case i become famous my unborn children could sell em. Or at least understand how close they came to not being born.

    Oh I'm sure that the MODS--GB or ACE RALPH-- have that information at their disposal & would be interesting as to how many hits or visits, plus how many subscribers to our heros thread, w/ over 28k threads & odo over 918 k, I would hazard a guess that its more than a few. :lol3

    If you go by the actual view count on this thread he has 31,000plus views. So lets say a third of those actually have watched all of his videos. That's HUGE!!! That on it's own is a good idea to show a documentary channel how well they are accepted and loved.

    Someone needs to show someone with power these even if Oisin doesn't. Maybe he will get a nice surprise one day with a fat check in the mail.:deal

    Now I have to figure out how to download all of his videos...just incase......lol.

    I had to wait to see any of the videos until I got home.
    I'd remembered to subscribe to them on YouTube.
    They show up on my Apple TV. Very cool. It is going to take me a few weeks maybe months to get through them all. Wow!

    Just started to re-watch episodes...question I forgot to ask while watching Mongolian episodes...did you ever run into bad fuel and if so where...I have run into crap fuel here in th U.S. and the bike runs like shit for a time...did you take any fuel treatment with you ??Hoping all is well with you.

    I never had any trouble with fuel at all, although having to sit out a 1000km in the truck probably helped :rofl:rofl:rofl:rofl

    I didn't bring any fuel treatment either... I know you can buy octane improver but my advice is not to bother with it....even when I fueled up in the boonies of Bolivia, Mongolia, Russia, Peru, ... I never had any problems.... maybe the BMW engine is part of it, I'm not sure.

    Cheers

    I have watched all of the videos, and it was just pure entertainment for me. Oisin,your commentary and humour bring the videos to life.

    Living in Calgary, I don't take the beautiful mountains for granted. I ride my motorcycle up into the mountains as often as I can.

    Yes, you should plan to retire in Alberta.:clap

    Family and I were taking the wife out for mothers day lunch yesterday and she points to the bumper sticker on car in front of us; "Not dead yet". We all laughed.

    Your famous O. :clap

    Hi Oisin! The weather is foul here, so I'm re watching your vids while the rain pours down and the wind howls! The music is great! Who are the bands? Have you deleted your vids from 'the other site'?

    Charlie.

    I sent the Big Fella, Oisin, a link to my motorcycle video.

    Here are his thoughts:-

    “Great stuff!!!
    Very funny ... Burst out laughing at the lidl motorcycle gear
    Your sons got a real dry sense of humor!
    very good!”

    So true. I'm sitting at work in Banff Alberta this second, and the Beauty of the surroundings are like, whatever. People come from all over the planet and drool at this place, much like we did in Glacier National Park. It's just what your used to I guess.

    Oisin..what was the longest wait at a border crossing...I haven't ridden my GS to Canada(from Pa)...because the border wait can be several hours(longest wait was right after 9/11 and we waited about 4 hours.

    Wow, that blows. I recently went to Quebec, crossed on I91 near Derby, VT. I've waited at stop signs longer than it took to cross the boarder. Entry back into the US was equally uneventful. Maybe it helps that I'm a 50+ & obviously American:wink:

    I have 3 choices -Buffallo/Niagara/Lewiston...avg crossing time appx 1-2 hrs...depends on time of day/time of week/red alert etc...don't drink a lot of coffee b4 you hit the border...still might try it on the GS this summer.
