Did you ever watch a horror flick and have a hard time sleeping? I don't think I'll even watch subsequent Parts.

Don't mess with a man in a kilt. Ever.

He's got some great camera angles there for a solo ride!

Always trust your cape.

That is too cold for me too! I would have tried it in my 20s, but this dude is not 20, I don't think!

He must have alot of fuel with him. . . . And the girl of his dreams home alone?

Some pretty good filming!

Find part two Eddie!

Brokentooth Part 2!!!

Well, boys and girls - HERE it is... "the Brokentooth Project, Part 2"!



Runs about 20 minutes of... calamity, gore, cold - and courage (also some idiocy IMHO).



When he mentions -60C, that's about -76F according to MY math..., but I feel he exaggerated - bet it wasn't colder'n -59C!



Watch for his 'glass' of Guinness around the 17 minute mark, and at SOME point - an 'artful' use of a fish-hook....



Kind of makes me glad I got rid of MY KLR, if owning a KLR positions you to do rides like this one.
