If you’re thinking about buying a Range Rover Classic (or even if you’re not), you might enjoy this Australian promotional video for the 1988 model year.

My friend Nathan told me recently about the Royal Enfield Himalayan, a back-to-basics, 411cc adventure bike from India. From reviews I’ve read the bike is more pack mule than race horse. Or said another way, the long-stroke engine provides more useful torque than it does useful horsepower. But often that’s just what’s needed off-road.

I think the YouTube review above does a good job of laying out the bike’s pros and cons. After the jump there’s another video of bike on an adventure in the Himalayas. And here’s a review of the bike in Cycle World to round things out.  Read the rest of this entry »

If you’re looking for an interesting winter project, you could do worse than taking inspiration from this excellent DIY solar shower video. The shower is designed to fit on a roof rack, be heated by the sun, and provide a 30 psi stream of water with pressure generated by an air compressor. It’s reported to get to about 95˚F after a day of driving around in mixed sun and clouds. Not bad.

I don’t think I’ve seen a more well thought out project. And the project’s creator calls it H2OT. Watch him explain and demonstrate the whole thing in a sub-six-minute video. Excellent!

A nice little video showing just how far you can take a standard Suzuki Samurai. This one lives in Panama.

Here’s a beautiful video from Petrolicious about a man who learned to drive and camp with his parents in a ’50s-era Willys jeep. He still has the jeep and the original camp trailer they would tow. This what camping and making memories is all about.

 

This great video from Jay Leno’s Garage the other day features Montana-based Legacy Classic Trucks and their restomod 6×6 Dodge Powerwagon. Restomods, as you may know, are classic cars or trucks that have updated mechanicals. This truck is powered by a 4-liter Cummins 4-cylinder diesel with mountains of torque. Such a nice truck…

Chris Harris, one of my favorite YouTube presenters, gives a quick overview of the Mercedes-Benz G350 G-Wagen for the UK car magazine Evo.

It’s refreshing to see a video from the Middle East that’s about the people and the land, instead of the turmoil. Modern Motorcycle Diaries takes us aboard their KTM 990 on a trip through Oman. It looks beautiful.

Here’s another overlanding video from Down Under. YouTube user Ronny Dahl takes us to Murchison off-road adventure park in western Australia with a few friends. There are five trucks in the video. It’s interesting to see how each driver handles the obstacles a little differently. There’s some nice drone footage as well.
