^^ They must have edited out the part where the gas splashes out of the tank.....
Just dont have that problem with my Safaris.
Ah-hah! See, that's what happens on the one day I don't obsessively devour every thread in the OC.
Darn! Beat us to it!
Great vid from a top lad, on a mega bike, in a glorious state, with help from a superb map company. What's not to like?
Gonna be working with Jamie's production company MotoGeo (check out his many other vids) on a few short films in the not too distant future. Currently (perhaps a little optimistically) trying to see if he's able to leave his new nipper with his missus for a few weeks and have a run out to Costa Rica and back with me on my 990, possibly him on something borrowed (1190 ADV might be nice for comparison) or his project XR650.
Cool- could you ask them not to keep moving the camera so much? Found myself getting a little seasick on the snow one. Good film, but got a little carried away with the camera movements.
Thanks ; )
They're channelling Steven Soderbergh
SEE....you don't need crash bars
Silly of me.
I figured they were either sliding on the ice or trying out a mini-dolly system. Or just pretending to.
What is the high fender on the 990 from?
I can splash a ton of gas for $2000 tanks though
Snow riding is good times. For me, deeper is better. When a road has been plowed, it is just death slick. For the picture in the middle I was running studs, but the other two are regular knobbies.
As someone that grew up in Northern Ontario - snow riding is not that big of a deal.
MotoCamping when it is -4 (-20c) degrees? That'll put hair on your chest
Thanks for the video - I've seen it popping up all over the place today. It has inspired me to spend the day on the 950 tomorrow seeing how high I can get in the Colorado mountains before snow turns me back
Or lose some toes. :eek1
I ended up spending the day on the 500 instead. I'll get the 950 out tomorrow now I've explored what's passable and what's not
Nope, Dont miss that shit one bit. Geek, I hate You. That 500 is on My shortlist.
What the f**k brand of s/bag handles -4... This I gotta know? Not that I'd try, but mine sucks at +40.
It appears to be an Acerbis supermoto fender...
I don't know for a fact. However, I had one on an old bike of mine, and the one in the vid looks very similar.
A warm one. Feakin BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
