You wouldn't think the new post apocalyptic movie Mad Max Fury Road has much to do with adventure riding. But my good mate Stephen Gall and Greg Robinson (Trail Zone 'In The Zone DVD 1') were both stunt performers in the movie spending almost a year filming in Namibia on the African continent. While some of it reminds me of our Trail Zone Magazine trek to Birdsville, the real adventure bike connection is that some of the bikes used in the movie were Yamaha XT660Z Ténérés with extended swingarms.
The designs of the vehicles and bikes in the movie have to be seen to be believed and it will be hard to recognise them on screen. Needless to say this will be an awesome film.
