Video of the Week: Alibaba One-Wheeled Electric Motorcycle

Maybe you’ve been thinking motorcycles aren’t dangerous enough, or that it’s far too easy to balance on two wheels. If so, then maybe the Alibaba one-wheeled electric motorcycle is for you. I don’t see this as the next round-the-world form of transportation that can pretty much fit in your carry-on luggage, but it might be…

Video of the Week: Texino Switchback II Sprinter Campervan

Our creative director, Sinuhe Xavier, recently got the opportunity to take Texino’s new Switchback Mercedes Sprinter campervan out for a test drive with his son.

He…

There was a lot of hype leading up to Ford’s release of the new Bronco, but it appears that it was justified. In this week’s video, Scott gets behind the wheel of the Badlands Sasquatch edition for some proper off-highway driving at the Expedition Portal test track in Arizona. Notable features found in this Bronco…

Video of the Week: Baffin

Rock climbing is a completely different pursuit than overland travel, but there are parallels in terms of strategy and approach. For instance, when you approach a climbing route, especially a remote one, your entire expedition needs to be completely self-sufficient. You’ve got to show up prepared with your own food, water, and equipment. You need to…

This is a notable Nissan model with a longstanding presence and popularity around the world as the Navara.

Video of the Week: Harley Davidson Pan America Off-Road Test

Harley Davidson ruffled a few feathers when they revealed their 1250cc Pan America adventure touring bike this year, but we’re not mad. In fact, we love seeing manufacturers mix things up and do the unexpected. It keeps things interesting. If you missed the release, you can check out Heather’s article which covers some of this…

Video of the Week: Principles of Overlanding – Vehicle Selection

We often fall in love with a particular vehicle for emotional reasons and automatically decide that it’s the rig we need. Maybe we have fond memories from our childhood of driving around the forest with our father in his old Land Cruiser. Naturally, when we begin looking for our own adventure vehicle, experiences like the…

Video of the Week: Principles of Overlanding – What is Overlanding?

If you find yourself wondering what the term overlanding actually means, don’t feel bad. This is an extremely common question, and with many advertising efforts latching on to and often using the term interchangeably with off-road or 4WD, we understand the confusion. In the simplest terms, overlanding is vehicle-based adventure travel. In today’s video of…

Video of the Week: 1990 Leyland Daf T244 Expedition Truck Build

The Leyland Daf T244 is a 4-tonne British Army vehicle that was manufactured in Lancashire in Northwest England.

Video of the Week: Putting the Toyota Hilux Through the Wringer

Is the legendary Toyota Hilux really as good as they say? The boys at WhistlinDiesel seem hell-bent on determining the answer to that question. But honestly, I’m not sure how I feel about this video. Entertained? 100%, but also a little bit sad to see such a cherry of a truck pushed past its limits….
