This DVD features presentations by four travellers. Dr. Gregory "Greg" Frazier, Tiffany Coates, Peter & Kay Forwood and Rene Cormier.
Greg has done 5 RTW-trips by motorcycle and clocked in 1000 000 miles behind the handlebars.
Tiffany"Tiff" Coates had on the outset planned to do a four month trip travelling by her second hand BMW R80 GS but picked up the travel bug along the way and just kept going, her trusty GS has now clocked more than 211 000 miles.
Peter & Kay Forwood has travelled through every country in the world recognized by the UN on their Harley Davidsson Electra Glide purchased new in 1994.
They have ridden 610 000 kms on that very same bike!
With a $25 a day budget Rene Cormier spent five years travelling through 41 countries covering 154 000 kms.

For me the most interesting part of the DVD was without a doubt the interview with Peter & Kay, had I based the rating solely on that feature this would get a solid 10/10.
In a matter of fact kind of way they tell about crossing war zones like the war-torn Congo where because of the road conditions Kay who was the pillion passenger pretty much walked through the whole country.
It's still absolutely amazing what they managed to do on a Harley with road tyres.

As this is basically presentations taped on Horizons Unlimited events the production isn't all that great but the sound quality is good and it's all mixed with still photos which might not sound like it's enough to keep you glued to your seat but considering these are some of the most prolific adventure bikers on the planet it is truly inspiring and a nice evenings entertainment.
