    I’m not sure if this has been posted here before but I’ll throw this into the pot anyway. The Awesome Players Off-Road Motorcycle Club videos, hosted on YouTube, brings together a bunch of middle-aged guys trying their hand at off-road riding in Canada.

    Awesome Players Last Ride of 2010 (Suzuki DR650, BMW F800, HP2, 1150GS) : This video starts with the caution stating “The following clip contains poor decision making, poor camera work, poor riding and poor language”. Lots of dropped bikes and at the 7:17 minute mark you will get to see why a neck brace is probably a good investment to make.

    I’ve watched a few of their videos, always looks like they are having a good time, and they have some fun places to ride.

    @Eddieb I’ve watched far too many of their videos. Saying that, now I don’t feel so bad about laying my bike down occasionally. They certainly have some decent trails to explore, and “The Sandpit” area looks like a sensible place to practise their off-road skills after a long winter hiatus.

    My favorite youtube Adventure riding channel, I’ve seen ALL of their videos.
    Too bad that they don’t post often…

    Let’s do a NZ version. Who is up for it?
    I don’t mind editing.
    I already have some of my ones posted… 😉

    Cheers

    The sun must be out in Canada as the Awesome Players have started posting their videos again. Punctures, water crossings, dropped bikes and all the usual banter. The Ural makes an appearance too.

    They have some awesome trails over there. Anything interesting over here gets torn to shreds by 4×4 yokels.

    It’s interesting to hear Riley talk about the requirement for permits to use the trails. I think he’s mentioned before that some of the permit revenue gets put back into maintaining the tracks which doesn’t sound like too bad an idea.

    And yeah, the 4×4 mob are a really destructive crowd when it comes to trails.
