BMW GS LC: The Ride of My Life
« on: April 11, 2014, 05:07:26 am »
I met this guy Brad Barker a few weeks ago at the Taste of Dakar event.  He had a film crew there doing this whole BMW, etc... sponsored video series on his new GS LC.

This first one is kind of a commercial for Black Dog Cycle Works but has a lot of good GS dirt riding and is fun to watch by our kind of people.  He will be coming out with more soon.

My intent wasn't to plug BDCW.  I don't work for them and have never received as much as a discount from them.  They sell mostly accessories; stuff you can buy anywhere.  They have dealers in UK, Canada, Australia and Sweden but not SA.  I do happen to think their skid plates are second to none (especially GS/GSA oil heads) and I have one on my '11 GSA.

My intent is just to showcase some fun riding.  I met this guy Brad at an event and it seemed like he had big plans for this video series.  He said his next video will be on his riding school experience at RawHyde, a west coast (US) BMW sponsored riding school.  After that he's doing one on the "Taste of Dakar" event.
