You girls need an agent. I officially offer my services. As far as I'm concerned you two are a marketing dream come true for the female riders of the world. In other words (You couldn't pay someone to do what you are doing) You are both doing this on DRZ400s after doing exhausting research this is the bike you both picked. That speaks volumes for the faith you have in this bike. You are putting your lives, your safety, your trust, your total beings into this machine. You are doing a ride of a lifetime and you are doing it on a Suzuki DRZ400. If the corporate heads at Suzuki don't see you as the biggest marketing tool of the century for them they should be fired. The biggest growing percentage of riders in the world are women and you two are the Amelia Earharts of the motorcycle industry. Women all over the world will buy this bike because Becky and Andrea put their trust in it and thats good enough for them. Think big girls. Think real big. Tours all over the world sponsored at all the big motorcycle events everywhere. Selling tons of motorcycles and getting a percentage of that. Now all you need to do is give me the rights to represent you and I'll get you sponsored by a great motorcycle company. Or at least get you some free beer. What do you have to lose.

All The Best

Just to illustrate the point..I once had the opportunity to talk with Lois Price and while we were talking a young lady came up and told Lois how she had just purchased the same motorcycle that Lois ride to South America.

Better than ever...

Well, you did it again with your 07-08-14 video. This time the picture quality seemed better than usual.
It's always fun to keep up with your adventures. I thought you were going to get all commercial on us and ruin it, but so far it's staying real.
Bravo to you both. I can't decide which one of you is hotter... (who are those people?)
Thanks so much.
Much love always.

Rick

Those are some scary cops. There's a reason most moto cops wear open face helmets, and it's because they want to limit the intimidation factor. These dudes look like robo cop. Of course you two found their softer side. Nice!

Ha I think if anything we've been getting less commercial! That's part of our apprehension about big time sponsors. I've seen ride videos where people obviously got a lot of money from some company and the whole thing is just a commercial and instead of being like "HOLY F@$% that pothole was crazy!" you have to be like "That was indeed a serious blemish in the tarmac, good thing my incredible Ohlins upgraded suspension set did its job! (panning of unreasonably clean shock for 10 minutes, zooming in on logo)

Glad you noticed the picture quality improvement! Our new cameras our awesome and we did a lot of research on framerate and bit rate for saving out for better picture quality, to make sure if we made a DVD that it would look good. YouTube actually degrades quality so some things still look a bit choppy on there, but we played our Kickstarter video on a big screen TV and it looked great. Which is interesting because it has video from a bunch of different devices, some of which were lower quality. But even my phone is 1080p and only Brants camera was lower at 720p. Most of it was just a learning curve for Adobe Premiere save options...because there are a lot of them! Also learning how to adjust color and contrast helped a lot, so we can massively improve the look of a lot of our older video clips now too.

Yeah not only do they have full face black helmets with full black visors, but they have black balaclavas on under that! They always ride around 2-up with the guy on the back often backwards holding that giant machine gun. They're pretty freaky, but of course once you get them to take that stuff off and start telling them about your trip, then they're all smiles and asking the same questions the little kids do. Is this tank plastic? How much gas does it hold? How fast does it go? Where did you say you started from?!

That looks like a good town to get the hell out of. Even the dogs look depressed.

Thanks for the update.

Becktastic! So happy when I get to watch a new video. :) A suggestion, would you zoom a small map of the locations you are discussing in your videos? I think that woyld be cool. Cheers!

Sorry, I tried to master Google Earth and despite some very patient online tutorial attempts, I think I need someone to teach me in person to get it. I want to figure it out for our final cut, because the geography is cool and it would help people planning similar trips...but every time I try to use Google Earth I end up wanting to choke the computer. I could probably do some simple Google Map zoom onto the start location or something. Our next few episodes are already done and queued up, but I´ll see what I can do for the next ones we work on. :)

Stuff has been seriously insane this last week.
We posted some teaser pics on our Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/motoventuring
I think you should be able to view the page even if you don´t do FB? Just kind of a pain to post here, since we´re on pay internet right now and rushed. If someone could be awesome and repost them that would be rad. :) <3

Haha Greg gave us those paper mache monsters (mine was much smaller) and we put them on the front of our bikes. They are just funny decorations. People really liked them and always take pictures, but they weren't long for this world and both have perished in the rain and loading incidents. We knew they wouldn't last long. Now we need some new weird stuff to stick on them.

New Episode!
