Thanks for the great entertainment.
oisin: awesome report! just started watching the video's.
i really like your style, can't wait to view the rest.
Same here just watched all the video`s Waiting to see what you think of Canada Ahh...Mongolia looks like my kind of place wish I were there at the time ..-18c this morning kind of puts a dampner on any riding around here,,
Waiting for more please
Thanks for making these videos ~ you have a wonderful way of looking at life!
Keep it coming!
Cool stuff !!!!
don't worry an average mongolian winter day is -33 celsius
and autumn is in september, the summer is short
Just started watching..excellant stuff...my GS is in the garage...snow and freezing rain here in Pennsylvania..should clear up later in week...subscribed ..now I have to catch up.
I am playing your videos over and over. They are really a beacon of light in the icy winter darkness around here. Thank you for sharing them with us.
I am curious about the music that you have chosen for your episodes. The music is very well chosen in my opinion. I am especially interested in the music that ends the episode 12 'Western Russia'. What song is that?
Awsome, enjoying that video feed here in Sacramento, cal. Keep it going, hang in there,,,, Keep the chin up.
My hat's off to you. Your videos are a dream, I watched to 17 and am in awe. I really appreciate allot the personal touch, sharing your feelings and impressions makes it so much better.
I'll be sure to follow along all episodes. If you can share some of the issues with the bike (apart from blown shock) and how many miles on it, it would be great.
From another Not Dead Yet believer.....absolutely excellent videos .....I'm just on #7 and needed to stretch my Not Dead Yet body.....
Keep up the great work and now I have to find your book!
I'm originally from England and now am living in Ontario Canada......you brought back some lovely memories.....
I ride all over Canada with the exact same mentality as you.....What will I think about, if I can use the old noggin material when I'm stuck in a bed....? Hopefully my adventures.
Ride on my friend.....ride on!
Oisin......excellent work my fellow adventurer!
I have one problem.....it stopped at 19....where's the rest?.....get stuck in man.....you have fans waiting!
Another issue.....your ebook....or any soft/hard cover book.....where can I find it? Seriously ....I need another fix!
See what you have started......ah!!!!
Please keep it coming....thanks once again for a great day not wasted watching your videos!!!
Oh, another question.....when in Mongolia....how does one repay for services recieved and what sort of numbers do you offer these helpfull people? For future referance?? Thanks....
Considering the alternative, leaving the bike....it's dirt cheap! I bet they live like kings on that sort of money as well!
Thanks for the link.....
I always wonder what I would do if I had to deal with a problem I couldn't repair. I have a much better chance of repairing my bike compared to yours......you can fix a lowly KLR with baling twine and a rock!!!...lol. You had the same issues as the big boys had with their full on train of support vehicles.....cudo's to you ....
I watched all 19 videos and am now severely addicted. I went to your Youtube channel and tried to open your 13 videos of "That I may die roaming" series. YouTube says they are "Private". How do we watch them? Is there a pass word we need to open them?
Thank you very much for the quick response. I'll definitely be watching for them. I thoroughly enjoy your perspective on life and humor.
Russia looks very much like Northern Ontario.....I agree 100% with your assessment of the scenery! When riding from Toronto to the west to get up to Dawson city.....the ride out of Ontario is the toughest of the whole trip! It takes 2 1/2 days fo teadious riding. Sure it's beautifull in it's own way, but I'm or we're used to it, so you're always looking for something new to look at.
When riding these adventures, it's easy to get into a slump where you question why.....why am I doing this. As you have said...but deep down it's you who knows why and it's you who has to answer to your decission on which way you go and why.
Can I ask....what do you do for a living that allows you the time and fortune to be able to do these adventures? You are not doing it on the cheap may I say. Maybe that is because there isn't any reason to camp etc every night...? Some places I expect it's so cheap that it makes hotels or motels just a sensible choice? I'm just curious....no need to answer if you don't want.
Personally I camp as much as possible just to keep costs down and also to rough it so to speak, get out of your comfort zone type of thing. I've done so much camping I actually prefer it now over motels etc. To each their own.
Please keep up the videos and telling your story.....just love it!
Thanks for the fix....we had a fresh 3 inches of snow last night and at this rate we won't be riding by June!
Thanks Oisisn, another great episode.
Oisin its your fault that nothing is getting done around the homestead...watched one of your episodes this morning and promptly went for a longish ride(few snowflakes coming down but not bad)..came home-had another quick look at part 12 and I'm heading backout for another ride on the GS...thanks.
You Sir, are an inspiration.
This is a brilliant, very personal and complete accounting of a very tough but rewarding adventure. No candy coated, girlie man travel documentary here. The best part is that unlike many reports you don't just take us along the route, you make us "feel" the experience.
Well done and keep it coming. I'm in for the book.
