Life should be experienced to the extreme. It’s a motto of mine that I’ve had ever since I was young, which explains while growing up in Colorado I did my fair share of ATV riding, hiking excursions high up in the mountains, and other adventures. Oh, and I’m not done yet, I’ve still got a lot of things planned for this next year. I want to train and get in excellent shape to handle a variety of activities. I want to go rock climbing again, learn how to kayak, go parasailing, zip-lining, bungie jumping, snowboarding, skiing, and for the first time in my life…actually get on a motorcycle.
Motorcycles are pretty cool. I’ve only ever rode on an ATV before, but I would like to at least catch a ride in a motorcycle with a hottie leading the way. Haha, I can have my fantasy…right? I mean, actually driving one sounds like a challenge, so I’d rather be a passenger and have a serious grip on the driver; I’d be terrified of falling off!
Anyways, my point is I think that extreme sports are pretty radical and I love watching videos on the web. So when I ran across the latest short film from ICON, I knew I had to share it with y’all. Basically ICON Motorsport decided to test the limits of riders Nick Brocha & Ernie Vigel, and put the two riders on an extreme adventure trying out Triumph’s Tiger 800XCs.
The short film is called Portland to Dakar and it’s about 31 minutes in run-time, but it’s totally worth watching. The short film features a lot of cool stunts and the terrain is insane! I mean can you imagine accomplishing stunts on asphalt, water, snow, dirt, mud, and jagged rocks? It’s the type off-roading that is truly suitable only for the professionals, and Nick & Ernie are clearly the best to get the job done.
Watch the film below. If it doesn’t make you want to try some type of extreme sport afterwards, then I must be the only one that thinks like that. Hey, what can I say? I’ve got a Colorado heart, the outdoors & extreme sports are waiting for me to wake up, smell the coffee, and start an adventure.
