    Love it?...bleedin' sickening so it is to the rest of we poor mortals who spend most of our time wailing with fear or gasping for breath-with a bike half the weight of the 950. :eek1

    Watched it last night with my wife. I absolutely loved it! Like Hayduke, I really dug the montage as well. My wife couldn't stop laughing after watching it, especially the part where all the kids are dancing...priceless. Great job guys!

    It's nice to get some positive feedback after all the effort that has gone into this. You never are that sure when you've been with it for so long. Glad you are liking it and I hope more of you get to watch it in the not too distant future.

    First of all I want to declare an interest. I'm Pyndons old man. My Passion is cars, My lads, is bikes. From a very young age he wanted a bike. As a parent my philosophy was to guide NOT dictate. We went from trialling to racing, building race bike engines to adventure riding AND MORE. The link from cars to bikes is not dissimilar, engineering is engineering steel expands at the same rate whether in a bike or car. We have talked through many solutions to many things.

    Through the wonderful world of the internet he shares his passion with like minded people, and is more than happy to do so. If you meet him anywhere and want advice he is quite willing to give you the benefit of his knowledge and experience.

    SO to get to the point why would you want to copy the DVD and put it on a Torrent, because all that does is destroy his faith in like minded people, AND may be he stops writing his ride reports!!!!!! Maybe he just keeps his knowledge to himself. BUT don't forget any money made from the DVD could fund another great adventure that he shares with you guys, so just think things through before you do something so stupid as to undermine such a project.

    Great to hear from you!

    I wouldn't worry too much about torrents as everyone who is really interested in these forums is going to purchase the original.

    After mine arrives if a torrent is available I might get it for back up sakes.

    I've got too many hours invested in following Pyndon to not want the to support him and his work.

    When you get the original, why don't you back it up with that? I hope mine shows up this week. Really looking forward to it.

    Copy it and put it on a torrent? :puke1 :huh

    I've bought and paid for it (the first from here post up saying they'd done so) and was joking that it may take a while to get here.
    I doubt it will ever appear on a torrent. The sort of people to do that aren't the sort to spend money buying it in the first place.

    If it travels shortest route, over the North Pole it's got over 18,500km to travel.
