GlobeRiders has produced it's most captivating and exciting motorcycle travel adventure documentary to date with the release of the IndoChina Expedition DVD. From Vietnam to Singapore, traveling over 8,000 miles in 71 days, the GlobeRiders IndoChina Expedition takes you to the rarely visited (by motorcycle) countries of Southeast Asia. The adventure started out in Saigon, Vietnam in September 2007. Adventure riders are Helge Pedersen on a BMW HP2 and Chris Poland on a BMW R1200GS Adventure. Award-winning videographer Sterling Noren accompanied the team in the chase vehicle to film the entire journey. The GlobeRiders team is one of the first ever to travel in Vietnam with their own foreign-registered, large-displacement, foreign-manufactured motorcycles.
Follow the adventure as they travel through extremes in weather and terrain, and discover the rich cultures of Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, and Malaysia. After 71 days on the road, their epic journey finishes up in Singapore. The IndoChina Expedition DVD continues GlobeRiders tradition of popular, award-winning documentary programming, distributed throughout the world.
In the fall of 2007, GlobeRiders realized a dream that had been in the planning stages for years - the pre-run or "recce" for a future tour of the former French colonies of IndoChina. Founder Helge Pedersen, along with team rider Chris Poland and award-winning filmmaker/videographer Sterling Noren, spent 71 days riding through Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. Over the course of their 8,000 mile journey, Sterling shot over 100 hours (1.3 terabytes!) of High Definition video, capturing the stunning beauty of the land, and the smiles, traditions, daily lives and cultural treasures of the people. From this vast library of sight and sound, he then spent roughly 1,200 hours in editing. The result? A new IndoChina Expedition DVD, and a six-part television series.
You can relive the experience! On Thursday, December 4th, GlobeRiders will conduct a special premier showing of the IndoChina Expedition at the Crest Cinema Center in Seattle, WA. Although the adventure is enthralling on the recently released DVD, this special event will use a digital projector, showing the IndoChina Expedition in full High Definition video resolution, bigger than life. The entire team will be on-hand for the show. A drawing will be held for door prizes. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to participate in a virtual moto-adventure through the diverse and historic countries of Southeast Asia.
