Limey is a MADMAN!

I reckon  his route included as many water crossing as possible.
No water crossing had the wife with me.

There's video proof somewhere that it didn't stop ya before. (where'd I see that? It was classic)

Done...

I've been working on this for a couple of months now.  Never made a video like this and I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.  Decided to cut it down to bit size pieces.  Not sure how many episodes I'll create out of the full 54 minute video, but here's the first one.

Episode 1


17 Super Tenere ES
15 Super Tenere ES
12 Yamaha XT250
13 Suzuki DR650SE

Thanks, I've made lots of videos in the past.  Never done one that is fully narrated and makes use of graphics in the way I did this one.  It's a lot more work, but I think it was worth the effort.

As always a great job..... I really enjoyed the 1st.

May have taken a while but worth the effort.

Thanks guys. 

Alan, I always think of you when I think of the big bridge in the Yukon.  So I thought of you a lot while making Episode 3.

Thanks, Bob.  Glad you approve.  I burned a lot of hours making it.  I'm pleased I've entertained more than just me.

I think I can wrap all this up in 2 more episodes.   I'm just cutting the already completed full length video down into reasonable chunks and calling them "episodes."  Almost done.

A ride is never done for me until the video is completed.  The Alaska ride is now done.  Time to start planning the next big ride.
