    Holy cow guys! Thanks for the replies!

    #95 confused me as well when Revit decided that they wanted the project named that. The reasoning was brilliant though; it's when they were founded - 1995. The bike is considered a mile marker project for the company. They're redoubling their attention and dedication to the adventure market and the new collection. The bike will be the flagship.

    To me this is an exciting project to be part of because I think many times you might have ideas but don't have the chance to act on them. You know, like that time I thought I should buy Apple stock at $11 a share but friends talked me out of it. Ha ha... cry. Well, we've all seen the bike world go from the adoration of cruisers to the custom cafe racer craze but we know that the best bikes in the world are adventure bikes. Outside of bolting on accessories this is a place the custom world has ignored. Maybe it won't be long before Orange County is building an adventure bike (shudder the thought) but right now we have the chance to do something no has done. That's cool.

    My AWD bike is an exercise in function but not really in form. This bike will be both.

    Here's the link to their blog. REV'IT!#95

    For sure check it out and know that they're reading this as well. Brents347 - I think that's a great idea and I'll for sure make the suggestion. MiseryGoat and Nowwhat - don't be so sure. I'm pushing for the chance to shoot somewhere epic but of course the budget for the bike and the shoot are from the same place. Too much bike innovation might mean we are doing an epic adventure shoot... in New Jersey! Um, no offense to NJ but I'm hoping we can find a something more exciting.

    But we're getting ahead of ourselves. I want to catch you up to real time here.

    I visited Chris in NJ to check out the bike. It's clean. Cleaner than clean. The first step is to strip the bike down and take some photos of the bare bones of the bike. From these photos we begin to imagine and design the body and the interface of the bike.

    See what I mean? Clean.

    That's my friend, studio partner and all around amazing photographer Tommy Liggett helping me shoot the bike. He's going to help shoot throughout the project.

    Given the history of Chris and I you might have some ideas of the direction of the project. Okay, more later.

    I'm thinking you're saving for a reveal here... So I don't want to throw out a spoiler!

    Regarding travel locations... Contininental US has many hidden gems... Much still under the radar and can be considered exotic destinations to anyone in the world.

    Places like Utah ( Moab), Nevada (Grand Canyon and TAT), Southern California ( many unique deserts, redwood forests and coastal ridge lines with spectacular island laden views), Oregon ( beautiful coastal dunes that are mini Dakaresque, east is very lunar desolate like Atacama), Washington ( Olympic rainforest), Colorado ( Euroesque rugged mountain ranges with quintessential adventure terrain), Baja California ( beautiful desolate landscapes, rugged terrain, pristine coastlines, hidden bays... And spectacular lighting).

    And not to mention the numerous other spectacular national park backdrops near off-road adventure routes like Crater Laker Oregon, Death Valley California, Yellowstone Wyoming, Monument Valley Arizona to name a few.

    I guess a "recommendations for your location shoot" could be a whole other thread.

    There's really nothing cooler than this-(other than maybe Meoni's original Dakar bike)

    Great photos. Subscribed!

    Always love a good story and like all good airport books the intro has me interested enough to pay for the book
    I have no idea where your heading with this but if the final chapter is something like kens (powercell) product then it'll be worth it

    Maybe the FCRs will materialise with chokes :dunno

    I would soooo much like to know what that weighs, there are so many threads on ADV of riders looking for the mystical 400lb 100hp twin.
