    Hello,

    I have been asked by the CO Dept of Tourism and the Australian Tourism Board to pull together approx 6-8 Riders to be filmed in a Tourism Promo video. It will be used to highlight Moto Tourism Opportunities in CO and advertised in Australia.

    Sept 11, 2019
    10:00am-1:00pm
    Lunch provided.

    Please PM me if you are available.

    We are looking for Adventure Bike (BMW, KTM, Yamaha,) Large bike style riders with clean gear to wear. There are already a few of us "Dual Sport" dirty bike guys showing up!

    Cheers
    John

    Beernutt...:imaposer:finger... Just cuz I don't list your specific bike doesn't mean we don't want you...We just need something other than Rat Bikes held together with zip ties and bailing wire!

    O...And People that shower more than once a week! Australians are Sexy People. They want to see Sexy People! So...You might be out regardless...But don't be so Cynical! We don't allow chain retail in Ouray!

    That looks like a cool place to live. Can I come?

    Tom was right, he would have soiled the bike footage. But hey, he could have hung shirtless off some cliff and the Aussie Sheilas may have come over to see that. Next time, Thomas, next time.

    What a crappy state we live in. That footage took months to produce since we have lousy weather most of the time :-).
    Really there is nothing to do in Colorado other than work and shop...

    A FUN few hours was had by all of the bike riders. We totally enjoyed the time with the film crew, our fellow bikers and the Colorado tourism group. My wife and I were happy to participate. The commercial looks SUPER FANTASTIC!!! Thanks to all involved.

    Is Colorado really having difficulty drawing people (residents/non-resident) to it's tourist destinations? Lack of people hasn't appeared to be an issue when I visit. Well done video.

    So that video is for the Australian market. We (tourism depts.) have realized that as the tourist demographic shifts from Boomer to Millennial and the return visits drop, the best way to sustain current revenues is to tap into the growing middle class travelers in foreign countries. Colorado still struggles to have a sustainable economy. over 160 years and we still struggle.

    Just heard from the production company. Cab't get more video due to their contracts with folks; but they will send over 120 photos in a couple of weeks.
    Stay tuned!
