In this DVD…
Two separate interviews with seasoned motorcyclists, Chuck Denison and Dennis O’Neil, discussing their experiences riding to Mexico’s COPPER CANYON.
Dr. Chuck Denison, a forensic psychologist from Laramie, Wyoming started riding motorcycles “again” at age 43. Adventure riding and touring became an immediate passion, and he has ridden much of the US and northern Mexico on both dirt roads and pavement. He has had four BMW motorcycles, and is equally devoted to his Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle and KTM dirt bike. He has ridden into the heart of Copper Canyon, Mexico on his BMW R-1200GS Adventure. Denison, who proclaims that “Anything worth doing is worth doing with passion” lives out the Biker’s love for freedom. He is an advocate for all forms of motorcycling, and is a certified instructor for the Motorcycle Safety Foundation® (MSF).
Dennis O’Neil retired at age 63 and bought his first motorcycle at age 64, in September of 1999. He rode his BMW 1150/GS around the world… and which now has 151,000+ miles on it.
Dennis’ motorcycling seemed to be “love at first sight” since he averages 30,000 miles per year on his present bike and has ridden to Alaska twice. Being an engineer, Dennis was interested in BMW motorcycles because of their uniquely engineered brakes, cylinder layout and shaft drive. It made engineering sense and still does. He calls the BMW 1150GS a “brutal bike” that can take a horrendous beating and keep on running.
