Outstanding in every way

Oisin, ditto to all of the positive posts on your work. Thank you for taking the time. Your comments at the beggining of this installment about the ride being for yourself is great advice to help keep things in perspective.

I have seen the word epic tossed around somewhat casually when describing a ride on the interwebs. Your ride sir, doesn't suffer that problem.

Thanks again Oisin. Your videos are always inspiring. Looking forward to the next instalment.
I rode across canada last year and thought it was a big accomplishment. I was at Pacific BMW
for an oil change and I shit when I saw the price. I can only imagine what it cost you to rehab the
1200GS after the road of bones.
BTW what is your opinion of your 1200 VS your 1150?

I agree 1000% with the above comment Oisin!!!

You have a great tallent for doing these things it seems.

Once again, a tremendous video....I have riden up and down the Cassier and your video brings back some great memories seeing the familiar spots where you photographed.

Have you done the Dempster as well as the Dalton highway? If so, how do they compare? On my next trip out west I want to do the Dalton as well.....another stroke off the list so to speak.

Once again....thanks...

Oisin,
Another top notch video. I really love your video technique and the great editing, the way you intermingle your vids and stills and Google Earth. I'm sure it's been asked and answered before, I am wondering what equipment you use. Most of the vids appear hand held. Are you using more than one camera? Any particular editing software?

Oisin,
I'm on video 21 and decided to jump to the end to say hello. I have both Long Way Down and Around video sets which are a great creation and no doubt have fuelled the adventure bike travel craze. However searching the wonders within ADV and finding your travel blog was like a free for all with kids in a candy store, exciting! Your wonderful perspectives, that sweet accent, rolled into a true adventure without the chase cars and backups. I have enjoyed immensely your videos so much more than the boys Ewan and Charlie. Thank you so much for sharing, all the best to you, I'll be certain to introduce your blog to the boys at the fire hall, it'll get them fired up for our ride on the Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route in July.

Regards
Mike

what you talk about around 6 minute mark in the last video is so true, i got back after 63,000 miles on the road and it was funny people i spoke to that knew i had been gone didn't want to know hardly anything...so like you say it is for you and you only and riders need to understand this, unless you have done it you can never really relate...

i find the easy solution is just leave and do it again - real life sucks after a long time on the road

Incredible

A monstrously HUGE amount of work to stitch this much video together.

Thanks for a massive contribution to the preparatory work of any budding rider about to set off RTW. These should be compulsory viewing for anyone about to head off into the wider world for the first time.

Well done mate - I think these will rightly be reference works for a long time in the adventure riders arsenal.

Great installment

Great stuff Oisin, right in my back yard. Sometimes we take it for granted living so near but we really do live in a wonderful part of the world.

I'm truly enjoying your videos particularly your insights about travel.

Thanks for putting it all together and sharing it.

Sweet, now your going through my back yard. Wondering if you went through Jasper, Banff, and Canmore. Lord I hope you went down the Icefields Parkway from Jasper to Lake Louise and Banff. That is one of the most scenic highways in the world.

Another fantastic video!
It came to me that you could easily flog this video series to a TV station it is easily s good as any other travel show I have ever seen!

I have said it before and I'll say it again.....this is top notch stuff...plain and simple!

I think the video report may take on a greater role in ADV ride reports with this excellent example provided by Oisin.

Great stuff, better all the time. I know it takes a great deal of work to get these things up on here.

You should consider taking this footage to some network and see if they would be interested in using this thing to put a travel show up with this stuff. Sort of like the Rick Steve's of motorcycling travel. Every damn time I watch Rick Steve's travel show I think that wimp need a motorcycle. Not only that the world need to evolve beyond Orange County choppers, I'm tired of that old man yelling at his kids.

We could be the next big thing, cause if you get the deal I want in on it.

I'd only be in for the food.beer stops. WIpe the camera lens off once in awhile sort of thing.

No no not what I meant. My wife just laughed her ass off. But there is nothing like listening to a fellow with an articulate way of speaking, and such an accent to keep you laughing at the differences of cultures. I love some of the names for things and different phrases.

LOL
