Mini Mate Motorcycle Camper Goes to Alaska
Visit http://www.openroadoutfitters.com/mini-mate-motorcycle-camper for more information or to order.
How well does a Mini Mate motorcycle camper handle behind a bike on a long trip? I met with one of my customers to talk about his experiences on a trip from Florida to Alaska and back. What he had to say will be of interest to anyone thinking about pulling a motorcycle trailer or camper for the first time.
BMW R1200GS Adventure Broken Side Stand Switch
This was the 4th side stand switch I have broken while riding in different parts of the world. The two first ones was on the BMW HP2 and the two last one on the same bike, a BMW R1200GS Adventure 2009 model. Great bikes for the riding that we do with GlobeRiders, but this is a serious problem and could easily have ended up with a bad accident. I have now made a protection plate to shield the plastic switch for rocks and will publish another video regarding that fix.
Arctic Adventure 5: Telegraph Creek
The road to Telegraph Creek is one of British Columbia's greatest roads, jaw dropping scenery, a hint of danger and a uncertain future. To steal a phrase every visit is potentially a last chance to see this great destination. So the http://OneWheelDrive.Net team takes a two day detour on our way to the Western Canadian Arctic. For the full article on this road visit: http://www.onewheeldrive.net/2009/08/13/challenges/
I'm unsure how this video will be received. Sometimes when you sit down to edit a piece, the outcome is obvious. You start, you look at the footage and say, "Yes, this will be a bike review portion of the series." This is not one of those times, the outcome of the Telegraph Creek video is a total surprise to me.
For one, the pacing is different, taking the time to tell a story so this video is longer than the others. For two, it is a story of the area, featuring a road as destination. Lastly, there's a theme here, as we're exploring an area that seems to go from one industrial endangering crisis to another. The sad truth is, you'd best see this area while it survives intact. Or better see it, and tell other's what you've seen and take some time to look at the designs the BC Government and various mining interests have on the area:
There are 11 projects currently under the Environmental Assessment Review on Tahltan territory. These projects are:
- Galore Creek Mine proposed by Nova Gold Inc,
- Red Chris Mine proposed by bcMetals and Red Chris Development Corp,
- Mount Klappan Coal proposed by Fortune Minerals,
- Kutcho Creek proposed by Western Keltic Mines Ltd,
- Klappan Coal Bed Methane proposed by Shell Canada,
- Rok Coyote Eddon proposed by Firesteel Resources,
- Gnat Pass,
- Schaft Creek proposed by Copper Fox Metals Inc,
- Forrest Kerr Hydroelectric project proposed by Nova Gold Inc,
- Foremore Mine project proposed by Roca Mines Inc,
- GJ (Kiniskan) proposed by Canadian Gold Hunter Corp.
Which promise to vivisect the area. This is endangered beauty, before you even consider the fact that two of these projects, the Klappan Coal Bed Methane proposed by Royal Dutch Shell (currently on hold) and Imperial Metals' Todagin Mine, area targeting the sacred headwaters of the Tahltan People and birthplace of three vital salmon rivers 3 great rivers (The Stikine, the Skeena, and the Nass). Indeed, imperials plan is to dump tailings into the Iskut headwater chain which feeds the Stikine. With the Salmon already decimated, this seems criminal to even the most modest intellect.
So I present this video with the following encouragement; go out, ride the world, see great things, but learn about them and take the time to share what you learn.
