now they're thinking at the next destination... i'll keep you updated!!
Well if they're going to go again, make sure you go with them! If I had a bunch of mates with Bonnies who were heading for the desert, I sure wouldn't want to be left at home!!

When I see these kinds of videos- It's Better In The Wind is another excellent example; I feel a bit conflicted about how to feel about them.

On the one hand, they're cool to watch and inspiring, and I suspect the producers have that in mind to some degree.

On the other hand, I can't help but wonder if they aren't sterling examples of what is possible when money meets a level of narcissism that is banging 11 on the meter.

Awesome video. Goes to show you that it's not just about the bikes, but it's also about the people.

I'm sorry but "It's better in the wind" it's a different think, as you told above: too much money and a good producer!
These guys didn't have this kind of sponsorship, they just are six guys with average income that love this bike and try to show us that it's possible to have this kind of trip also if you don't earn 100.000 dollars per year!
They get a sponsorship by some companies like alpina bell and tucano for some parts and wear stuff, but no money, no professional cameras or professional crew, just a go-pro camera and too much skillness and recklessness! That's why i've shared this video.
Is an home made adventure, all of the work to have a desert-ready bike where made at home, they take one year to plan this trip and in my opinion, this vid worth to be seen

OK, help me out, because I have absolutley no idea what you mean. All I think about when I see this is a bunch of guys (wearing the same jackets and helmets, heh, heh...) having some fun on Triumphs. And it seriously makes me want to throw my seat cowl and Ace bars in the trash and go buy some knobbies. So unless I'm missing something obvious - like this is a corporate sponsored promo for the Italian national enduro team, it just seems like a fun trip?
