Hi all
My new TV-Web show is very close to becoming a reality.
We (myself and my co-producer) have started negotiations with a few sponsors and are just putting the final deal together. Things are close to making this a go.
I would like to ask for your support.
Please take the time to view our webisodes.
The first vid is our pilot, a short version done as a magazine styled “how to” show. The other is the story of the show itself done more in a reality-documentary show format which is more along the direction we are heading although we will be adding tech tips, riding tips, travel pointers etc as well as long term testing of gear I use.

If you like what you see, please rate them high. Send me your comments too so I can bring them up in our next production meeting.

We will be posting webisodes on various websites such as Youtube but for the full versions you will have to be a subscriber and it will be sent to you 3 times a week approx 3-4 mins in length, so they are easy to watch, even at work when you are needing a riding fix.
The good news is subscribing is free!
We will also be offering contests for gear as well as discount offers to subscribers in the future.
Our launch date for the show is set spring of 2010.
To subscribe here is the link:

Thanks in advance. I look forward to sharing my journey and meeting some of you out there.

Sorry for the inconvenience. We are working on fixing it and building a new web site. I appreciate the comments!

Nice, I'll watch as well. It's tough to find a good motorcycle show, plus to get that balance of fun/funny without being cheesy/annoying.

Good job and look forward to more!

Great concept! Good luck with the launch! Please.. no ***** bike night episodes lol
Just straight ones for you!
LOL
I will hit up some rides, rallies and bike events but I am not there to do the same old boring thing. I seek out odd balls and interesting people to talk to and things that folks would want to check out on the road. Cool?

Good luck, always nice to see some somewhat local bike related media.

If your tour brings you through the Lower Mainland next summer, a Bike Night at 5th Gear would fill your quota for "odd balls" and "interesting people", present company excluded.

Hmmm

Does the chick who says she has "junk in her trunk" in the sample episode realize that this expression means that she claims to have sperm in her ass?
Didn't think so.
Ahh, middle age peeps trying to be cool. Failing since, well, forever, yo?

Oh, shit. I'm 41. Snap, there it is...

Hi all
Just an update. Currently we are in the slow legal aspect of negotiations with sponsors which is going even slower during the holiday season.
We are got bored sitting around and waiting so here is a vid we did just for fun while we get things set up.

If subscribed then you already should have seen this. We have had few subscriptions with invalid email addresses so if you have subscribed but have not received an email from [email protected] you may have to do it again.

Merry Christmas to all.

Hi folks
Thanks to all who have signed up and shown support.
We are just about to shoot our TV pilot which will also make up the first several webisodes. It will be a trip from my home town out to Banff National park and showing all the sights on the way. For those of you who have ridden this area you know the stunning beauty there is to see.

If you would like to be mentioned on the video please go to the pilot funding page. If you have a company that is looking for more web exposure put it thru under your company name.

(we can even add a pic of you and your ride for those in the Gold and higher level)
This pilot is going to be made into a DVD as well as pitched at the Banff TV-Film fest where all the network big wigs meet in June. It will also be made into several webisodes to be posted online indefinitely.
This past winter has been a whirlwind of activity with meetings, ph calls, emails, letters etc. I will be so glad to get started on this soon. I'd rather have a sore butt from riding a bike than all this desk sitting. :tredmill

If you have not yet subscribed please do so, its free. Our sponsors coming on board are offering discounts and very soon prizes related to travel and riding.

Stay tuned for our T-Shirts to be available. Just setting up the online store.

Cheers
Ride safe
