    It just gets better, crazier. He's a finisher. An AT where an AT has never been before.

    Vintage AT porn is like vintage porn in general. Hairier.

    I still prefer hairy to sophisticated.

    A lot of new bike threads query quality control.

    No, you just need to figure out the correct computer settings and your off.

    I think I probs spend too much time watching bike vids on youtube, but occasionally I unearth a gem. I watched these guys ride in Peru, which led me to this. I wouldn't be surprised to find Im late to the party, but just in case.
    A bit longer than most, but well worth a watch and some stunning drone shots. No extraneous chat, just bikes, tracks, turkeys, etc.

    Watched the one after this...it didn't any easier. Love his adventurous spirit, not sure I'd take those sorts of risks though, a tip over/broken ankle and he'd of been in real trouble out there. He didn't look to have a spot tracker or sat phone?

    No I dont think he has any "beam me up Scotty" gadgets. He's been travelling a long time now and I guess he trusts himself to find a way or can walk out. I certainly wouldnt have the balls for that kind of stuff. Gotta love that bike though. Still going after all he has put it through.

    He doesnt seem to use gps either. Quite a lot of rides you see him just heading off somewhere with little or no evidence of an actual road. At least in the last video you could see telephone wires.

    Epically adventurous.
