Great film, great adventure. Liked the close up shot of reflexions in goggles. So you can go off road on a scrambler!

Wow. Thank you! I could watch that again and again - great film, and it really looks like a fantastic adventure.

With the right pipes, knobblies and a good paint job the Scram really is a beautiful bike. Congratulations to all of you!

Neat film. It's kind of serendipitous that you all have the exact same jackets and the exact same helmets.

At first I thought that you all were in Mexico and then I rolled back up and I saw where you live. Is that filmed in Italy somewhere? Spain? North Africa?

Megalo, that is just awesome! Guess the website will furnish a lot of details, but it would be great if you could list some of the mods done for the trip. Did Alpina just sponsor you,or did you run with the Alpina tubeless wheels?

Brilliant.

I reckon any spoke wheel bonnie could do that with longer rear shocks High level pipes some knobblies and a Bash plate? Right?

I'd love to watch the video. Tried to from my tablet, but I get the notice that the video settings aren't set for mobile.
