I don’t expect an Academy Award this Sunday for “Best Documentary on Motorcycling, ” which is premiering right here, right now. Never a quick learner, I’ve finally figured out how to upload video and post it only 60 days into this trip. What follows are videos — unedited, non-captioned, with no music or soundtracks –of riding Now Voyager in various parts of South America. I apologize up front for their sameness, for their lack of editing, and all other things that make watching a video interesting. I promise you we’ll get better.
For those of you brave enough to watch some of these, please let me know which ones you liked and which one’s you didn’t. And the whys.
Video #1: We ride along the Chalhuanga River about 100 miles south of Abancay, Peru. This clip captures some of the road interruptions we encountered.
Video #2: We’re riding in the Clouds, 13,000+ feet high in the Andes.
Video #3: Route 26A in the Andes
Video #4: We encounter cows and other obstacles in the Andes
Video #5: We continue rising on Route 26 out of Nazca. Landscape reflects the desert that surrounds Nazca, not the alpine we’ll meet shortly
Video #6: We start riding on Highway 26 toward Cusco
Video #7 Down the Chilean side of the Andes Con’t.
Video #8: Down the Chilean side of the Andes. We cross the Andes from Argentina to Chile between Mendoza and Santiago. This road is famous for its steep switchbacks.
