Paul and Larry are Still Kickin'. We want to fly champion enduro rider Graham Jarvis to northern Canada to ride with them and to talk about how-to live your entire life on motorcycles.

The final result will be a documentary released for free on Youtube.

Our first documentary, the 20-minute Fifty Years of Kicks, introduced life-long riders Paul and Larry to the off-road community. The film inspired many riders to keep doing what you love and keep having fun, age be damned. Everybody wants to be like them "when we grow-up".

We've all seen amazing videos of Graham Jarvis the champion rider, but who is this guy? What's he like to hang out with? What's it like to be one of the world's top riders? Does he get scared? What do you have to do to turn your passion into your living?

We want to find out what it takes to keep motorcycling a lifetime passion. What is it like to ride for a living versus riding purely for fun? How do you avoid getting burned-out of an activity you love? How do you fit motorcycling into your life around a day job? How do you justify the risks and dangers with your family?

We also want to talk with young riders with a life full of trail miles ahead of them.

Our funding-goal will cover the bare-minimum costs of filming for a week in Northern Canada with Paul, Larry, Graham and filming crew. 

Risks and challenges

Filming Fifty Years of Kicks cost us a lot more than we bargained for. We got killed out there and nearly lost our shirts. We are learning the true costs of documentary filmmaking the hard way.

We need to haul Graham, Paul, Larry and their motorcycles out to Northern Canada for filming. We need to rent more cameras, microphones and equipment to properly film the riders.

People *loved* Fifty Years of Kicks, so we have plenty of willing help for the next documentary. But we will need to feed everybody for a whole week and give them a place to stay. We need to get the crew to the off-road filming location on ATVs. We need gas for the motorcycles, trucks and other vehicles.

Mr. Tax man WILL come knocking, and we'll need to reserve a large chunk of the budget to avoid, you know, JAIL.
