Big Trip 2009 - Saskatoon to Tofino

Alright, it's snowing here in Edmonton, and nothing motivates me to edit video more than snow. I've finally got around to editing the lead-up to and first day riding of our Big Trip last summer. Hammy's doing the ride report.

and I'm responsible for the video. Here's the first bit. I had to divide it in two for youtube.

Part1

No Video

Part2

No Video

This is really just an extension of what we started last year

Hopefully I can get Day 2 done in the next week or so. Enjoy!

I am looking forward to seeing how the Versys did on the dirt fire roads. I am sure it did just fine.

Glad you all are liking it so far. I've started Day2, but am still waiting on Hammy for a few files before I can finish. The Versys did great on the back roads (as you'll see in the next few videos). I was skeptical before we left, but by the end of Day 2, she had proven herself on the fire roads.

Good stories, well told, and superbly edited. I'm digging your soundtrack too. Keep 'em comin'. Cheers!

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

I'm very impressed and very jealous.... Great footage and commentary!! I can't wait for the rest of the series to be posted.

I'm extremely familiar with all the roads you guys have been on and will be on in future episodes, unfortunately most of the miles have been on four wheels or more.... You've really got my own Big Trip juices flowing.

Thanks for sharing!!!

Alright...sorry for the delay. Day 5 is finally done. it's only one file long (as opposed to the usual two) cause it was mostly a slab ride, and we didn't film much. Hope you like it.

Looking forward to day 6. I visited Tofino back in the 90s and loved the hot springs at Hot Springs Cove.
