Surf Trip: Chile to Cali in 125cc Motorcycles

Tom Bing and Sally McGee's are traveling from Santiago (Chile) to California (USA), only with motorcycles of 125cc displacements, surfboards and their own company. In this passionate journey, the couple will lead twelve countries and more than 24.000 kilometers along the coast whenever possible.

The couple began this surftrip in October 2015, motivated by "the spirit of adventure, the sense of liberation to be away from everything and love for nature and the sea." They dissatisfied with the daily routine, sold all their belongings, rented their small apartment in Tynemouth (England) and flew to Santiago.

Inspired by a six-week trip to Indonesia with 90cc moped, they decided to sail along the coasts and roads located between Santiago and San Francisco and planned to reach its final destination in one year.

In addition, Northcore is following this trip as small videos. If you want to enjoy the rest of the stops, you can do it on vimeo.

Sheene

Development is well underway on bringing the incredible life story of the cheeky, charismatic charmer Barry Sheene to the silver screen. Universally loved, Sheene was many things A a cockney rebel who always did things his way, a playboy who loved life in the fast lane, and a champion who became an icon. His legacy though was to cheat death twice and win two world championships while fighting the authorities and changing the destiny of the most deadly sport in the world.

SHEENE is a narrative bio-pic feature movie. Whilst on their research travels, the Producers have met with and interviewed some of the biggest names ever to be involved in Grand Prix motorcycle racing. Here's what a few of them have to say about Barry, and why he became one of the most loved and revered champions of all time.

Ice-Bike, Mountaintop riding on a frozen lake!

Filmed Winter 2015 near Mt. Mason, in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada, Bill Hitchon ridding his monster machine, Suzuki Boulevard on top of a frozen mountain lake at 5000'.

Bill is a former ice racer who owns his own custom motorcycle shop in Richmond, BC. He built this bike for a movie called "Dead Rising, Watchtower" that filmed in Vancouver.

The bike took 880 hex head screws in the back tire to be able to ride on the ice and about 250 screws in the front tire. The bike has a ATV tire on the rear and a KTM front end, which lightened it by about 250lbs, making slinging it to the mountain possible.

Only Black

We rebuild a used bike to turn it into a Tracker. The result its pretty good and the dark marks on the used exhaust it gives some personality.
