First 3 episodes were shown today and it's like stepping back 12 years. Huge effort by the H-D team to get those bikes built in their spare time ... it's going to be another good series.

 :thumleft:
Iíve only watched the first and enjoyed it. They really went out on a limb to do this on prototype bikes supported by prototype trucks!

And a few years from now, fans would argue that this trip was done without the make-up trucks. :pot:
Nobody has ever denied they have support or backup on this trip or the ones before. Having the crews make for good quality programming unlike most of the amateurish action cam footage uploaded to Youtube.

Youíre 100% correct. Very similar to the Pol T7 production, which makes an underpowered bike with poor suspension and cheap plastics seem better than it is......

I quite like the fact the two Rivians are going along, seems like itís an entirely different trek from their side on this ride. Other than looking for a charging point somewhere, what I notice is the average speed is real slow ... the bikeís speedoís are in mph and itís seldom above 40. Must be difficult to keep the enthusiasm up when you have a 3 to 1 ride to charge time ratio to deal with.

Anyway, its a bike ride with a difference and I welcome that.
1978. It's 6am, mid winter...two up on a XL 185S ... off to my first casino ever with all of R40 and we've got a full tank of fuel, so enough to get there we reckon.... that's determination...

Other bike: '05 Honda Varadero 1000
New bike: '16 Honda Africa Twin.

These two are amateurs. 13000 miles in a 100 days. Some people on this forum do that by lunchtime on their keyboards.
