    With huge apologies to anyone inside the GFuckingFW of China, I cannot help but post this amazing piece of rider porn. It's in Panama, not China. And it's not a Chinabike, though the KLR650 is as close in spirit to a chinabike as anything ever to come out of Japan -- the kind of bike you can drop without wanting to commit suicide (see second clip called "Which Dual Sport Motorcycle is Right for You?" for proof).





    Yes, you can subscribe to this guy's extremely entertaining Youtube channel, called HalfThrottle's Moto Adventures.

    cheers!

    Language English
    Box office $2,036,488 (UK)
    TT3D: Closer to the Edge is a Britishdocumentary film by first time director Richard de Aragues. The film is narrated by Jared Leto and charts the world-famous Isle of Man TTmotorcycle race that takes place on the Isle of Man every year, and follows the leading riders in the2010 race, most notably Guy Martin and Ian Hutchinson.
    It was
    shot in 3D, and charts the racers' reckless dedication and the extreme risks involved in their bid to become "King of the Mountain". The film was released to the public in 2011 to critical acclaim and was a financial success. Grossing $2 million, it is the seventh biggest documentary hit of all time in the United Kingdom.[1]

    Warning: Spoiler Alert
    The film charts the build up to the 2010 races, and then documents each of the races and their results. These take place along public roads through the
    Isle of Man, covering 37.73 miles of terrain, and packed with thousands of spectators who have come from all over the world. Using 3D technology, Closer to the Edge captures the drama and speed of the 2010 races to show what motivates these adrenaline addicts, who live and breathe road racing.
    Guy Martin's appearance is notable as the maverick with a unique take on life. John McGuinness appears, a racing legend and the most successful living rider, winning the TT fifteen times. Conor Cummins is one of the Isle of Man’s most prominent stars, truly living the dream.Ian Hutchinson is a relative newcomer whose career has invited interest. In 2009 “Hutchy” won two TT's in one day and another important road race, the North West 200, in Northern Ireland as well as competing every week at the top of the British Superstock Championship.

    The film reveals how for more than 100 years riders have flocked to the Isle of Man in search of thrills, glory and triumph. The narration tells how the TT has always called for a commitment far beyond any other racing event, and since the race began over 200 people have made the ultimate sacrifice in their quest for victory.

    The second half of the film introduces Bridget Dobbs, mother of two and widow of
    Paul Dobbs ("Dobsy") who died in the 2010 races. Bridget understands and accepts that her husband, like many others, died doing the thing he loved the most in life. Despite the near fatal injuries, the film shows how those that survive all want to go back and do it again.

    Directed by acclaimed motorsports and commercial director
    Richard De Aragues, the film utilises a range of archive footage along with 3D technology and high definition equipment to capture this unique and visually stunning festival of motorcycle road racing.[2] The director explained, "The TT has been filmed before, however, not until now have the tools existed that could do justice to those that have competed over the 37¾ miles that make up the legendary Mountain Circuit." TT3D: Closer To The Edge was produced by CinemaNX, the film production and distribution company backed by the Isle of Man Government. It was filmed in the Isle of Man, Ireland, England and Los Angeles, California. In March 2011, it was announced that Jared Leto would narrate the film.[3]

    TT3D: Closer to the Edge was universally acclaimed by critics, with a 100% fresh critical consensus on
    Rotten Tomatoes as of February 2012.[4]Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian gave the film 4 stars out of 5 and stated that "It's a saturnalia of excitement, saturated with thrills and a sense of danger that is almost spiritual."[5] Catherine Bray, writing for Film4, also gave also gave the film a 4 out of 5, and called it "a thrilling, funny and moving human drama for pretty much everyone, not just biking enthusiasts."[6] Graham Young of the Birmingham Postpraised the film and wrote, "with history offering a fatality for every corner and more than five per mile, your heart will be in your mouth watching the likes of maverick rider Guy Martin go hell for leather in search of his dream of winning just one race."[7] Philip De Semlyen of Empire gave the film 4 stars out of 5 and stated that the Isle of Man TT is pure cinema.[8]Philip French of The Observer gave the film a positive review and wrote, "the speeds on such narrow, winding public roads are hair-raising and superbly photographed, the crashes spectacular and the riders far more likable than anyone involved in Formula One."[9] Matthew Turner, writing for View London, praised the film stating, "Impressively directed and beautifully shot, this is a superb documentary that's by turns thrilling, heart-breaking, jaw-dropping and laugh-out-loud funny."[10] Anthony Quinn of The Independent gave the film 5 stars out of 5 and wrote that "De Aragues never loses sight of the sport's high-risk stakes, where a mechanical glitch or tiny error of judgment might be the difference between life and death."[11]
