    Other than the view, it would be a boring trip on the mighty TW. You should be in switchbacks and twisty situations much more and if you run more than an 1/4 of a mile regularly without a bit of a turn you need to find another path to travel(assuming you live where that is possible). The turns in the video were not the kind that get your blood up. The TW rocks in tight handling and when and if I purchase a GoPro I can show you, though I'm sure there are those out there that can supply the needed footage. While the main focus with the TW is it's remarkable off road abilities, it's hardtop back road capabilities are under appreciated running the dual sport 203/204 tires.

    Is this that "Nutnfancy" guy? Kind of seems like it??

    EDIT: just read the Youtube vid tags.

    Cool, man.

    But docjekyll2002 = tnp?

    Or you just found one of his vids and posted here?

    Anyway, I've enjoyed several of the TNP videos.

I've been meaning to ask people Stateside whether they think he represents a part of the average person's US thinking?

    Used to love his mountain backpacking adventures with his dog and friends or family but he has wound back his backpacking a bit and seems to do more biking now...also like it. Learnt a lot of stuff from him.
    I don't know if he represents the "average" American's perspective, but I know he represents a growing trend of people here who believe times are going to take a turn for the worse......

    It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.
