Just curious what your favorite AMATEUR video that you have seen online, You Tube or Vimeo? I'm talking about the short (5-10 minutes) amateur video...BUT WELL DONE.

I'm not talking about the ones with 5 minutes of loud pipes or the other extreme where the video is overlayed with BORN TO BE WILD, or some other Wild Hogs song...

Just the nicely done short videos...maybe with biker interactions and possibly even a semi-plot to it. So let's see your favorites!

I have a couple right now (actually, I think I seen them both here).

Here's my favorite so far...

And here's another one that's about Northern Michigan which is very well done.

In 2012 I did the Key West, FL to Prudhoe Bay, AK IBA ride on my Vision.

I took a lot of pictures but no video. When I would tell people stories about the ride on the Dalton Highway they didn't seem to believe me until I showed them these videos.

This person was on the Dalton Highway two weeks before I was and took what I think is some of the best videos of that area that I have seen.

This is part 3 and 4 of 7. wac Northern Alaska -

Thanks Rollin

Not touring but I like this video.

This is a co-workers brother riding his BMW S1000RR at Road America. Nice view of the track at 180 mph.

Another (short) video on the Dalton Highway I had found.

This one shows the first of only 3 gas stops on the 414 mile highway. It also shows how easy it is to miss this gas stop.

I met 2 riders that missed this gas stop. The first was a rider that had crashed and went over the side and was waiting for a helicopter to take him to a hospital in Fairbanks. Gasoline was no longer a problem for him. The next day I found out that he broke 3 ribs and his shoulder. (The truck drivers know everything that happens on that road)
The second person had to borrow gas from another rider.

The Yukon River Crossing fuel stop -

This is just a simple ride video, but the music gives me chicken skin every time I view it and I view it frequently.

Rollin' I was watching the first clips you posted and saw an interesting shot of a doe moose at around 5:30. I also noticed a sign around 8:30 that said next services were 240 miles away. I have never gone that far on a single tank of fuel in my Vision so I would likely have been in panic mode if I saw that sign. At least on the first video you posted I would have panicked more than once based on what they did say. I hate dirt roads so I would have not been in my element for much of that ride.

Yes! 240 miles until the next gas stop.

I don't know who this is, just a guy and his wife on a jackpot doing what Victories do best. It is from Big Bear Lake down to Mentone/Redlands (Southern California- San Bernardino county). About a 50+ mile ride condensed to 7 minutes.

I cut across Cali on a similar road just south of there starting out of Ft Bragg. It was my favorite road in Cali. Them boys in northern Cali got it good.
