What to watch

It's cold and I don't want to ride in this crap so we're watching motorcycle videos on youtube. Thought I'd start a "what to watch" thread.

We're currently watching this couple riding in freezing conditions in Canada and Alaska on 90cc Hondas:

"Long Way Round"
In 2004 Ewan and Charley embarked on an epic Long Way Round challenge, to bike 20,000-miles, cross 12 countries and 19 time zones in just 115 days. Riding their BMW GS R1150s, they crossed Europe, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan and Mongolia to ride the Road of Bones through Siberia, over to Alaska, through Canada, North America and finished in New York. The Long Way Round journey would challenge their view of the world and also test their physical endurance.
it's here:

Also we've watched: "Long Way Down" but I can't find it on the web anymore. Ewan and Charley riding their BMW GS R1150s from John O'Groats, Scotland, through Western Europe, East and Southern Africa.

Others anyone?

On any Sunday!

I watched the Ewan McGregor one when I was sick a few years ago. Awesome.

Toney,
Thanks for the link on the Honda 90's!

I just couldn't seem to appreciate "The Long Way Around" a few years back, 2 episodes and I was 'over it'.

Love the adventures of Ed and Rachel on their C90's! I met them at the Edmonton motorcycle show a couple of years ago, genuinely nice people. Lol, that was actually the main reason that I went to the show, just to meet them!

I watched Long way Down and Long way Around and really enjoyed them both, Charley had a Dakar series out as well, but for some reason I just couldn't get into that one?

Another riding video that I would recommend (though I don't know where I saw it, maybe Youtube?) is Austin Vinces Mondo Enduro. He has another out called Mondo Sahara but I haven't seen that one yet.

I'm subscribed to a YouTube channel,but can't recall the name. Enduro Cross Training, I think? Lots of interesting videos on offroad riding tricks. I'm surprised I've learned so much from YouTube.

I think the show got better as they got farther along.
