Halfthrottle videos. Only the awesome stuff

I don't take many pictures of my bike, but I have a lot of video. Since I didn't see a video related section in the forum I thought I would post some of my videos here.

I have loads of great adventure videos on my YouTube channel. Some of those videos for one reason or another have become "required viewing" for all KLR owners. So I'm going to post the awesome stuff here, and if you want to check out the rest head over to my channel.

The Worlds Most Powerful Dual Sport Motorcycle


This video was filmed in St. George Utah. It's actually my buddy Mitch's bike. I had no idea what this was going to turn into, we just went out and filmed a bunch of shots and I wrote the voiceover while editing. I call it the, "most powerful" because of how many you can buy for the price of other large adventure touring bikes. Maybe instead of buying that R1200GS you should buy 4 KLR's and give a couple to your buddies so you can all go for a ride? Maybe instead of the KTM 990 you should buy one KLR and use the money you have left over to tour around the world. That's basically what I was going for with this video.


Ninja edit: If there's a way to embed videos someone please enlighten me.

Welcome to the forum! There have been so many links posted here to your videos on You Tube, I thought you were already a member. Nice work.

I've been a member for a while now, just lazy about posting.

Mitch does rock. I keep asking him to start posting videos of his own. He doesn't seem interested.

Thanks for the video and just have to agree with your views about being the most powerful bike . I know guys who wish they would have saved the mony on there [ let`s say nice bikes ] after what that have spent on repairs .

Did your friend ever find his backpack?

Although motorcycle riding is romantic, motorcycle maintenance is purely classic.

Nope. I tried to figure out where it may have fallen while I was editing. But it was gone before I even turned the camera on.

Great video. It lead me to your youtube channel and I've been watching a bunch of the vlogs there.

How long have you been in Panama, and what brought you there?

I've been in Panama about 2 years now. I married a Panamanian girl.
