Brilliant! I love a good stout (or 6) but.....

God/Buddha/Allah/Tom Cruise as my witness, I had one of those sweaters.

On post #1 - That picture of a can of Guinness is a reminder that it is an essential element of any adventure ride. Always bring a 4-pack with you. Cold, or hot, it will be a great substitute for a meal at the end of the day.

Thanks Greg,

Yeah, Paul's a legend. Wish I had his metabolism.

Well I'm just writing up my own winter travel experiences in the RR section http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=853714 but after enjoying your videos I'm halfway between awe, respect and a big thumbs up and utter dismay as there doesnt seem much point reporting my own journey now !

One things apparent, we share a similar outlook on adventure and I'd sure like to sink a cold beer with you one day

The other thing I was left with after my experience that this video reinforces was how much I love riding in those cold low temperatures, but I'd love to know what advice or info you can give (maybe by PM) from the lessons you learnt on the trail, I found rubber hardened making my stove and pump useless for example and did you have any thoughts on the battery not doing its thing in the mornings? I also once made the mistake of holding a spanner or a fuel cap without gloves on, man was that an error

Thanks again for sharing your ride!

Thanks Sticky

I read your RR and gotta say,

I tip my hat and a glass of Islay across the pond to you.

Cheers and keep writing

Dear Mr. Brokentooth

With nothing but the utmost respect, I must say, sir, you are a Mushhead of the highest order! I watched your videos twice in the last 12 hours. Wow, you make it very difficult for me to bitch about the balmy 10 F it is right now. And I'm not even thinking of going for a ride today. My helmet's off to you and I'm looking forward to your next endeavor. Perhaps Death Valley in July would be fun for you.

Cheers & keep the stud side down.

Wow!

I think, there is not much else to say.
Great ride, great videos, great pictures!

I'm gonna ride to norway in a few weeks, but with my hack and not alone.
That makes everything much easier.
Your videos gave me a pleasant anticipation for my own ride,
(although i fear that there may be no winter this time. Until now they only have rain in norway.)

Cheers!
Richard

Kingston: -40 and the snow is coming down sideways. Can't see across the street.

You should ride down Bwokentoof. We could have a couple of COLD beers out on the deck.
