Great vid, Kid. Read your RR way back when and this vid brings up the same emotions your writing did. Very visceral, you have a knack for emotional compositions...the ability to transcend a moment and make it greater than just that moment. For some people, the Grand Canyon is a hole in the earth to be ogled and photographed. To others, standing on the precipice is a profound, spiritual experience. Your posts identify you as belonging to the latter group.
Both life and your video may be short, but that doesn't mean you can't pack a whole lot of good shit into them. I'm on, or falling over (and some would suggest long past overdue), that same cusp: it's time to be an adult. But I can't seem to let go of that...that whatever it is you managed to capture on video.
Your vid pushed me strongly towards taking another great adventure sometime soon. So if you find yourself in search of a road partner sometime this summer...
Kudos, brother, and here's to many more great adventures.
Thanks for the inspiration!! Truly emotional!! Dammit, I need to slow down and take some pictures!!
Wow !!! There you are !!!
I followed your first trip report and thought you to be the grandest kid in the world. Good to see you're still at it.
At 21 I did much as you, only I did it for but one year. I wish I had done more. But of course I'm glad I became an 8 to 5 guy and made enough money to do much more. And. I'll be able to still enjoy my freedom in retirement. I'm 58 now and still only 30 in my mind and body. Have a garage full of motorcycles.
If you can make it, come by Deal's Gap motorcycle resort April 29 through May 5. Me about 100 of my motorcycle buddies will be there on our old 2-stroke street bikes. You'll see some great old bikes and met a bunch great old guys who were just like you in the day.
Thank you. I really got a kick out of the video. Those were some really good pictures. It is wonderful that you have it all documented for the future.
Really makes the case of documenting things for posterity, if for nothing else
It's all been said by others....but....thanks.....
F%&#ing Awesome work!!
I'm 45 and just now starting my motorcycle adventure life. I did crazy shit when I was 20 and I will be doing crazy shit when I'm 60. My kid is off to college in 6 months, my new wife is cool as hell and rides her own bike. We are about to kick this world in the ass!!!
Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.
Thanks for sharing your video. It fueled my mind with more ideas on possible destinations to take on my next adventure.
Great video and concept. I've been to most of those places. My senior year in college, 3 friends and I took a trip around the perimeter of the US on Z1s. From Key West to Oregon. One stayed in Cal. We kept traveling through the years and doing wild things. We get together every 5 years to reminisce. This year will be 35 years. We'll meet in Moab.We may look and feel old, but in our minds we're still young. I hope you have many years of being young.
Great Video!! Make me recall many lost dreams...
Great Music too. Let us know the song name /group....
Well done young dude. Loved your first Ride Report and that video montage is heavy with the same goodness.
Keep on doing what you're doing and enjoy every precious moment for the gift that it is.
Thanks for posting
Bummer...... saw this on MotoLady's blog today.
Wow, this is sad...my prayers go to him and his family. He has lived a rich life...I hope he recovers completely...
will pray for him from Israel.
prayers sent!!!!! words can not communicate the feelings for "kid" and family.
I just watched the video again.
Life is fleeting.
