THINK of epic bike excursions from the silver display screen – Simple Rider, The Nice Escape, Quadrophenia… however wait, isn’t some of the epically (silly) lacking.
That’s proper, the legendary scene from the 1994 movie Dumb and Dumber, a story of two halfwits… I imply mates, who make it their mission to return a misplaced briefcase to its proprietor. What ensues is a narrative of daft laughs, slapstick humour and one of many best bike street journeys ever dedicated to movie.
The scene takes simply three minutes and sees the riders journey from Nebraska to Aspen Colorado. The truth of the journey was 382 arse numbing miles, seven gallons of gas, two rear tyres and a prime velocity of 35mph – often.
Talking of the journey, Revzilla’s Zack Courts mentioned:
“The rider triangle is extra accommodating than it seems to be, because of Ari stretching the body to match the film bike. The seat, alternatively, is worse than it seems to be and the paint-shaker vibration rattled our joints to numbness. Ari had predicted that the novelty of the bike and the journey would put on off after about quarter-hour on the street, however I’m unsure it even lasted that lengthy. It was overcast and frigid, with no surroundings in any route. We rode alongside miles of barbed-wire fence, punctuated often by a gate or an indication warning us to not trespass. On some bikes, the considered open pasture could be interesting, however aboard our hog, it was thrilling sufficient simply staying on the straight and slender.”
Contemplating the journey two riders full was a actual journey – virtually definitely greater than most BMW GS homeowners will ever do – we at Visordown salute the 2 heroes of the hour.
