Whitey and Hammy's big Trip - now with video!!

OK...We got back from our first big trip more than a month ago, and I've finally finished editing some of our footage together. Hammy and I ran from Edmonton south through Montana, then west to Idaho and up through BC. An awesome ride!! Check out Day 1 here;

The audio isn't great, but I hope to have most of the issues worked out soon.

Nice job guys!

Have ridden many of those same roads. Look forward to the next episodes.

What kind of helmet cam are you using?

Cheers!

Great vid, keep them comeing.....
I am from Ontario so a trip to BC is a bit further, but for sure want to try, just need to find some one nuts to try it with me.
I have the same Givi setup, how did it work on such a long trip? enough room?

Actually the only Givi bag I have is the top-box. The panniers are Suzuki, and I hate them. The scientists at Suzuki researched for years to discover the most inefficient shape in the universe and made luggage out of it. The shape prevents you from putting in anything that can't be folded up or stuffed in. The Givi bag was great...held all the stuff that I couldn't fit in the panniers.

You may want to consider Shad cases. I have 3 42 litre cases and love them. And they are considerably cheaper than Givi.
