Awesome Players Off-Road MC Summer ( BMW F800GS, HP2, 1150GS, Honda XR650L )
This is all three clips merged now that Youtube allows longer videos. 42 minutes o' fun in HD! This is a compilation of 7 or 8 of our rides from this summer. Lots of sand, huge water crossings and spills. Low skill level makes for good video!
The Classique 2013 - F800GS, DR650, KTM 640, HP2
Chris, Riley, Jason and of course Henrik head out for an early spring group
ride. The Classique is one of the first dual sport events of the season.
Put on by the very capable and friendly folks at Ridaventure.ca who do an
amazing job. We were pretty shaky at the start as we hadn't done any riding
since the fall and Henrik hadn't ridden in the last year. Jason had his new
to him KTM 640 which started having some starting issues when hot. Henrik
had some issues with the Mighty Dr as well. A couple of falls, an actual
crash and of course the poor decision making that is the hallmark of any
Awesome Players ride. This is a long one at 90 minutes so grab a beverage
and some snacks and enjoy.
First Time Offroad for Bruno - BMW F800GS and Suzuki DR650
This was and interesting ride as Jason had lent his almost new F800GS to a
friend with no previous dirt experience. We take Bruno out to some of our
regular haunts and he does fantastic. Of course he dumps it a few times
but that is normal and if you don't have the occasional little tip over you
aren't trying very hard. Later Bruno buys himself a KLR so Jason's plan to
get him hooked seems to have worked.
The Mighty Suzuki DR650 a Ural Gear Up and a BMW HP2 Enduro in the dirt.

It was a cold April morning and four members of the club headed out on
three bikes. No one is riding pillon..... only possible with a Ural
sidecar equipped bike in the group. Joe had 1150GS had been feeling its
age, at the least the 100,000 kms on the suspension. So he decided not
continue bottoming out the poor boxer on the trails. And in an instant he
went from controlling his own destiny to being but fleshy ballast at the
mercy of the Ural pilot's poor judgement. Know in the sidecar world as
"being the monkey". Once we reach a small sandpit everyone takes turns
trying the Ural as well as all the other bikes present. Everyone is rusty
after a long Canadian winter. A few low speed falls, some wetness and a
GoPro getting run over by an over zealous Central European round out the
