Nope. Seen nothing so far.

Started it last night. Seems like KTM dropped the ball big time.

Is this show why there are BMW's at Starbucks everywhere?

LOL ...

Long Way Around is a great documentary style reality show.
Subscribed to Proskitt's YouTube channel. Good stuff.


Movies/TV Shows:

World's Fastest Indian is kinda cool.
I was glued to Wednesday night TV back in the late 60s watching Then Came Bronson
The Mechanic has a MC chase scene. I recall reading about it in Cycle World.

Not a movie - but you might want to check this out - it's produced in England

Not sure that they were good, but there was a couple of ADV films put out as part of a guys ministry. A bunch of guys riding F800s in Colorado IIRC. It was a combination of purpose driven life and the old Budweiser "Love you Daddy" commercials. Sorry I can't remembers the name, but I bet someone will. If that's your interest give them a watch.

Redbull.tv has a lot of good free movies also. I just watched moto 8 and rewatched the latest On any Sunday. While not adv related there's also a lot of race coverage such as the Erzdurg hare scramble and I think Romaniacs will be live streamed also.

Re: adventure motorcycle show on netflix

I never did get the "long way around". Both great riders. As far as adventure.... Dude they had a chase truck and whole crew following them. They never wandered anywhere a 4x4 couldn't go and he blew out his shock beating and overloaded bike. Just grabbed a spare from the truck. Who carries a spare shock? Those that have a full on chase truck! Maybe I'm jealous as I've never had anyone follow me with a chase truck.

I think the reason KTM backed out of the deal was they were unsure of those two taking the bikes and filming them doing something stupid and turning folks away or maybe they thought they needed their bikes to more racing focused and this was no race.

I can't remember if I've seen the MOTO 8 movie. They had several of them on Netflix. May have to add Redbull TV to the Roku.

Re: adventure motorcycle show on netflix

Yea, Long way Round is why you see BMW's everywhere and really helped kick off the ADV craze. To me it wasn't so much about the ADV and roughing it but two friends having a good time. I enjoyed it for what it was. But it was very mainstream and many of the bikes that we see on the market I believe are there because of the shot of adrenaline the series gave to the market segment. It's pretty much a must watch if you are doing the ADV thing, just for what it is.

And yea, KTM played it safe there, but that series sold a lot of BMW's, similar to Tom Cruise recruiting for the Navy.
