oh boy, several minutes of all the BMW cliches you've ever heard, recited in a robotic British monotone...



Come on Chris, I know you can do better than that!

Hi Tom
Copied links from http://www.adventurebikerider.com/fo...gs-riders.html

The OP there is a GS rider.

No I didn't make these videos: Neither have the time or skill to make it, nor inclination to write a script. I especially lack the sense of humour to write such a funny script, especially for the second whale penis video. As you know I now own a BMW, although I still prefer to describe it as a RBA (rebadged Aprillia)



To the chap (sorry, forgot your name) who has spotted that you can indeed embolden text and change the font size, even simultaneously:

1. Well done. Congratulations.
2. Why not share something interesting and funny in this "no useful content" forum, rather than being a boring stuck in the mud?

That decision is nearly as difficult as whether to have a latte or cappuccino when I get there.

Well I would certainly hope you're planning your next trip and not spending time making animated funnies! I seem to recall that you're a bit tired of the East and were looking forward to going somewhere else year--any plans with your new ride?

The XC is receiving some much needed TLC as we speak. Just doing some edits of videos and hope to start a 2013 Siberia RR sooner than later. This summer I'm planning some slightly closer to home (and cheaper: still paying for last summer ) Balkans, Alps, Corsica(?), Pyrenees and Portugal off-pavement capers on the XC. Are you heading to western Europe this summer: We need to drink some cervezas!

Looks like I will have some time this summer, am looking at doing some serious travelling, but not sure where yet...

Have you found dirt roads in those areas, or you'll stick to pavement? I was on Corsica last May, very nice!
