This is simply the easiest way to waste the next six minutes of your life:



Not necessarily the best way to waste it, just the easiest.

Ever since the BW video I have been captivated by your genius.

Well done boys, well done.

As a spectator it hurts to watch.
Great fun.

Reminds me of Nason ridge lol.

Fair warning: You may end up wasting not just six minutes but the next two hours of your life, watching every bigwheel productions video on youtube. This stuff is the best thing to happen to the motorcycle documentary genre since the legalization of marijuana.

I have been walking around all morning with that narrator's voice in my head, it's like someone made a hybrid clone of Red Green and Hunter S. Thompson, and gave him a camera. Absolutely brilliant! Keep em coming.

Awesome video - though they need to better balance the relative volume levels between the voice over and the music - one is either too loud or the other too low.

That small issue accepted, WOW! Great story telling ability, excellent editing, super script and amazing action! Gotta watch more of those and see one of those events in person!

Thanks for putting that together. I've watched it twice with two separate groups of people. Both times everyone was rolling. Thanks again!

A manly effort by all. Great narration and the best motorcycle vid this year.

Many thanks for your efforts.

Thanks for watching guys.

There is, coincidentally, a ''99 Scorpa and an '03 KTM available for sale in the Bellingham area. Both are gently used and only raced once. Ridden by mature riders.

Furthermore, does anyone know if there will be any races at Hannegan this year? The hare scramble or enduros? The bikes might be more valuable if they last for two races.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

Great vid of a great event. Keep your eye on the NMA schedule at www.nmaoffroad.com for Hannagan events. Skagit MC also hosts events at Walker Valley just 35 miles south near Mt Vernon. The Webfoot Enduro in September is a rugged one!

Granparacer,

Thanks for the NMA link. That will keep me busy for a while, plotting and planning out the season. Or perhaps just fantasizing. I'm not sure that a KTM and a trials bike will make good bedfellows for any of these events. It would make an interesting comparison,however.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel
