Check out this video of a young man about to attempt the world record of the youngest person to circumnavigate the globe by motorcycle. The weapon of choice : a Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled ! I wish him all the very best and have donated to his charity (Movember, a great choice). He will be setting off from the Bike Shed soon and you can follow his adventure on 35000miles.com.
I have been a long time fan of Jamie Robinson and his MotoGeo channel. His enthusiasm for Adventure motorcycling and his always positive friendly outlook make his channel a joy to watch and I am a very happy subscriber to his YouTube channel. A little less than two years ago, he started an Indiegogo campaign to fund a longer film entitled “The Freedom Machine” about a trip on a Ducati Scrambler through Baja California and the people he meets along the way. That film has finally come out and I have just had the pleasure to watch it. It’s not a big departure from the typical MotoGeo fare just a bit more polished and produced (and obviously longer) but it’s absolutely worth the 2.99$ he charges for it. It will also definitely silence anyone who says the Scrambler isn’t a real scrambler :). Here’s the trailer for the film :
