MotoAfryka2005 movie

helo,
Just finished editing the movie about our trip from Poland to Cape Town on 2 Yamaha TT600R.
You can watch the movie from my site http://motoafryka2005.prv.pl -> MOVIE or download it. The movie is quite long so buy yourself few s, order a pizza, put your headphones and enjoy!

thx Bossies,
so I will translate what my friend Kloszard is saying in the movie: "sorry guys, but I have forgotten to switch off the iron at home";

english subtitles should be ready in about 2/3 weeks;

There's something to be said for watching it the original without subtitles. I am enjoying the video a great deal - not speaking anything but English myself.

Sometimes you don't need to to know what's being said to understand and enjoy perfectly well. This is a good example.

Examples of when it is positively best NOT to understand would include songs by Shakira, but that's a different point.

Simon,

Wait for the english version - the dialogues are just as entertaining as te pictures. E.g. a debate which way to undo a screw and if it applies to nuts as well. These guys are undobtedly proud of achieving the goal despite all odds, especially the steep curve of learning mechanical skills on the hoof.

Great movie - really enjoyed it despite only speaking english. Good choice of background music makes up for that though!.
Seeing all those clutch parts so often early on I was a bit worried that it was all going to end in mechanical tears early on.
