DVD REVIEWS
“This video has good information for those just entering the adventure touring riding. Even though this is BMW F800 specific it also has general information useful to all who want to explore off-road riding. I found the Bio’s of different riders and the modifications done to their F800’s very interesting. It was helpful in making a more informed decision in my personal modification choices. ”

“We weren’t bored. What really hit home for both of us is how simple, informative, honest, educational and totally entertaining the whole production is. The synergy between the host, the videographer and those interviewed really adds to the content of every chapter.”
