Looks like you are putting together a nice filmography!
Don't forget Austin and team's 2nd film:
Terra Circa
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsThRs3RwhA

Even better than Mondo Enduro, IMO. Both are worth seeing!

If anyone gets the chance to see Austin's live presentations, do go see his show. He sometimes tours the USA. Go to his web site to check current schedule and activities.

Austin breaks it all down to a few simple elements, shows that anyone can go motorcycle adventuring .... IF ... they are willing to cut loose their ties at home. (the hardest part )

Cheers!

The Adventure Begins... Basic Course on Adventure Motorcycling Riding


A long, but pretty decent video documenting an introductory course by RawHyde Adventure on basic adventure motorcycle riding.

Click to see the video

The video covers off-road riding position, balance, acceleration, clutching, turning, breaking and picking up a dropped motorcycle. (1:40 hour)

The Adventure Begins... Traveling North Korea by Adventure Motorcycle


Vice.com shared this short documentary about a group of adventurers who traveled by motorcycle through North Korea and South Korea. Their choice of motorcycle was the Suzuki DR650. The group of five New Zealanders include Joanne Morgan, Gareth Morgan, Dave Wallace, Brendan Keogh and Tony Armstrong.

The real journey began years ago, when they decided they wanted to ride the Baekdudaegan, a mountain range that stretches the length of North and South Korea's shared peninsula. After countless hours of negotiation and coordination with both governments, they were granted permission. It was, the Morgans believe, the first time anyone's ever traveled through both countries like that since the partitioning of Korea in 1945.

During the entire journey they were escorted by North Korean security. Joanne and Gareth shot the entirety of their trip.

By making the trip they hoped to demonstrate how Koreans can come together over what they have in common. To symbolize this, the group took some stones from Paektu, a holy mountain in the North, and brought them to Hallasan, a similarly sacred peak in the South.

It's a view few foreigners have seen, and even if planning the road trip straight through the Demilitarized Zone required working within parameters set by the highly choreographed and restricted confines of North-South Korean diplomacy, this was a journey worth documenting from start to finish.

Check out the video (16:16 minutes)

The Adventure Begins… The Dakar Rally


It is almost time for the 2014 Dakar Rally!

The rally starts on January 5th in Rosario, Argentina, then passes through Argentina, Bolivia and Chile, finishing on January 18th in Valparaiso, Chile.

When I was motorcycling through South America I passed by some of the same cities and over some of the same terrain… although at a much slower pace. I can guarantee that the scenery will be incredible.

Check out this video of the Backroads of Bolivia.

Whether you are a fan of the motorcycles...

the quads...

the cars...

or the trucks… the Dakar Rally is the most amazing motor rally in the world.

I will try to post updates as the competitors move through the various stages, so stay tuned.

For more info check out the website for the Dakar Rally.

The Adventure Begins... An Interview with Helder Rodrigues about the Honda CRF450


Helder Rodrigues has never won a Dakar Rally. However he is hoping that his luck will change. He is riding a newly designed motorcycle by Honda Racing Corp. (HRC), the Honda CRF 450. The 2013 Rally of Morocco was recently won on a Honda CRF 450 with all five of the HRC team members finishing in the top 10. Will the newly designed motorcycle carry an HRC rider to the podium?

Check out this interview with Rodrigues talking about the 2014 Dakar Rally and his ride. video
