Congrats

Top notch, very good ride and hats off to you!

You've captured, and experienced alot of the north and it's culture in a single ride. Remoteness, hardships, the struggles faced by youth, family, and working folk up there a "total package" of a trip, and videos very, very well done!!

Here's to the north....

Incredible.

Unbelievable.

Inspiring.

I just got back from doing about 1000 miles in roughly 2 days of riding (all street, no snow/ice) and I'm still fatigued. I can't imagine the stamina required for this!!!

Loved the music selection as well.

And last but not least, is that a utili-kilt you're wearing?

Awesome!

I just forwarded the links to some friends and posted to another board in Germany. Part of what makes this trip great in my estimation ist that it was done not with the fanciest equipment available but with grit. Ride what you brung! Now my just completed weekend seems so... well.... boring!

Sir, your testicles were forged by the breath of ULLR.
Well done in a MAD sort of way. Helmet off to you.

excellent adventure!!

Definitely a most excellent adventure, great video, great sound track and exceptional narration. I really enjoyed your trip. I was raised in Northern Saskatchewan and can fully appreciate the numbing cold that you undoubtedly experienced over and over. Hats off to ya Brokentooth!!!

Can't wait to see your next adventure!!

Cheers

Pure Gold!!

That my friend was awesome. Like a previous poster said. "I laughed, I cried and was inspired".

I rode across Canada in early April a few years ago, snow, rain, freezing rain but the coldest I saw was -9C and that was waaay better than the freezing rain I rode into at one point, but neither were nearly as unpleasant as -30C plus wind chill.

Great story and great narration. Thanks, and well done you!
