I posted the trailer in the Off Topic thread since it is from YouTube, but if you've seen Long Way Round and Long Way Down with Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman this is going to be a great watch..

I’ve seen Long Way Round, all episodes, at least five or six times. Only seen Long Way Down once or twice.

I have the DVDs of the first one around my house, somewhere, they’re your standard 480i since it was pre-HD days.

Couldn't find that thread. Link or cliff notes?
Hey, you know what? In all the excitement I totally forgot to grab the link, LOL. It’s in the bored thread. Yeah, swing and a miss on that little detail, eh?

Thank you sir for pointing that out.

I'm hoping to get some seat time this weekend, by my left SI joint is still nowhere near 100%. Can barely get my left foot high enough to rest it on the floorboard.

I apparently need it! I do realize its a terrible time to sell, but I have no patience. Once I decided I want to sell, I want to sell now. Free up the money and the space. I should just hold onto it, but we will see what happens.

. With a 14,500 rpm redline, the fuel-injected V-twin pumps out a peak of 75 horsepower and 33 ft-lbs of torque. Any two-stroke fan’s heart will race at the sight of the two expansion chambers—one underslung, and the other under-seat.

fucking cool

i wanna hear it

Finally got the 9 out after weeks of collecting dust, riding out to Yorkville to my daughter's softball game then to my son's game in Elmhurst. Well over 100 miles round trip. Good times.

I haven't ridden in almost a month. Up until a week ago I couldn't even raise my left foot high enough to get it on the floorboard. The temps look good for this weekend to ride, as long as the rain stays away.
