I saw this a while back I think. It's pretty nuts.

Guy's got a bit of the streetfighter mentality in him, just needs to get rid of that shit all over the front of his bike.

I remember hearing about this but have never seen any video. That was sweet! Those stream crossings were bad ass. Such an unusual choice to tour the world with. Though Looked like a well loved and very well abused R1.

I was impresed by the dude that I met that rode coast to coast, back to his original coast on a naked 650. But I can't think of anything more hardcore than riding the world on a R1.

I rode my 1986 Ninja 1000 from Massachusetts to Los Angeles once in 6 days back in 1987 does that count ha ha.

This guy is nuts around the world on an R-1??? I would have thought a modified BMW. That would have been my choice I would think.

Someone buy it and burn me a copy and ship it to me for free. I just banned myself from buying anything else.....I have been back to work for 9 months and still somehow three months behind on my mortgage. :mad:

If you've seen ewan mcgregor and charlie boorman's trip 'a long way round', you can see how much trouble you can have, even on a BMW enduro bike. I can't imagine how much some of those trails would suck on sport bike. I wonder what sorts of tires he used?

My goodness thats about the worst bike I could pick for a trip like that. But hey, more power to the guy. I'd be happy to do those trips on any bikes.
