Thanks for sharing, I had found the first 5 shows on Youtube and was waiting for the last one. Loved every minute of it......

Great Stuff!
Hi Steve,

Your timing for posting these videos could not have been better. I'm currently deployed in the middle east and was wishing I had some sort of motorcycle related adventure show to watch...low and behold, I log in to ADV and there are your vids! I'm only watching 1 episode per night as it gives me something to look forward to least for the next 5 days :D Excellent work my friend. Thank you!

Just watched the films back to back. What an adventure. I hope you enjoyed the trip as much as I enjoyed watching it. Well done for choosing to do it on a British bike. Lets try not to be too hard on the orange bike riders.
Once again thanks for filming it editing it and putting here.

Cheers Glenn.:1drink

I watched all six back to back. Good stuff.
A few hours spent editing all that up I bet. What do you use to edit?

Cheers Bryce

Awesome!!!!!! Thank you so much for taking the time to share this! It is currently -30 degrees here in Quebec and I have been dreaming about getting my Tiger back on the road. I HATE WINTER!!! This video will help me escape the cold/snow for a while.

Watched episode 1 tonight and loved it. Reminded me to set some goals and make some epic rides happen. Like you, I have supportive wife (and 4-year old) who will give me the opportunity to do something similar at some point. Will look forward to tuning in to the remaining episodes!

Just discovered this and am settling in to live/ride vicariously through you.

Thanks for all the kind words guys, I really do appreciate it. Coming your way in 199 sleeps :)

I used Sony Vegas to Edit, total time around 270 hours. I can now edit so quickly probably twice as fast as when I started. A lot of time wasted with some hardware problems, re-edits etc. still have to redo sound on Episodes 1 and 2 before transposing to DVD. Probably will be around 280 hours total for 5 hours video/sound. That works out 1 hours work for 1 minute video. Sounds about right.

Made me think .. someone said you only did it for free stuff. Well If I did I expect around $60,000 worth of free stuff :) Thats what I'd charge my customers. Do it for the hell of it!
