My [grandmother](https://dunham-family.com) was a [bicycle activist](https://dunham-family.com/bikeadvocacy/) in NYC, and my mother is an urban planner focusing on sustainable transit. I've always lived in bikeable cities, and generally enjoyed cycling even in rural areas because of the ability to cover big distances with [less effort than jogging](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicycle_performance?useskin=vector#Energy_efficiency). <img src="https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/7f69f9ea-6c39-4b71-a15c-dcab6eb6d463.png" style="float: left; max-width: 220px; border-radius: 4px; box-shadow: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2) 0px 4px 12px; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 15px;"/> As a teen, I started taking long bicycle rides at night to excercise and explore the city. As a hobby project I [electrified a three-wheeled cargo trike](https://docs.sweeting.me/s/A1pm_oLz2) with a hub motor, speakers, and undercarriage lights. To save money during the summers I worked at a few bicycle shops and learned maintenance. > It felt inevitable that I'd graduate to motorized two wheel transit once I was 18. > In 2015 I took the [MSF class](https://www.chp.ca.gov/programs-services/programs/california-motorcyclist-safety/california-motorcyclist-training), got my license, and got a Kawasaki Versys 650. <img src="https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/97ef6665-a197-4f0d-8f52-019a639b5fe4.jpeg" style="float: right; max-width: 240px; border-radius: 4px; box-shadow: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2) 0px 4px 12px; margin-top: 25px; margin-left: 15px; margin-right: 5px"/> <br/> I spent the next month researching theory and doing 2hr/day of parking lot and highway practice after work. I then packed two Amazon bargain panniers + tent, and set off [cross-country from SF to NYC](#2015-11-%F0%9F%87%BA%F0%9F%87%B8-%F0%9F%87%A8%F0%9F%87%A6-%F0%9F%87%AE%F0%9F%87%B1-%F0%9F%87%B9%F0%9F%87%B7-North-America-Cross-Country-Round-Trip-SF-%F0%9F%8F%8D%EF%B8%8F-PDX-%F0%9F%8F%8D%EF%B8%8F-Denver-%F0%9F%8F%8D%EF%B8%8F-NYC-%F0%9F%8F%8D%EF%B8%8F-MTL-%F0%9F%8F%8D%EF%B8%8F-Toronto-%F0%9F%8F%8D%EF%B8%8F-SF). The pace of all this caused some anxiety to my parents, but they were releived to see me arrive safely two weeks later. I've gone on to motorbike ~30,000mi every year since. I compete occasionally, but I'm nowhere near pro-level riding yet and I still have a lot to learn. If I want to live and ride healthily for 70+ years I have to stay humble when assessing risk, continuously self-improve, and stay accountable to myself. I strive to cover as wide a variety of terrain as possible as safely as possible. This document serves as a personal record of my motorbiking and outdoor adventures, and as entertainment for everyone else. <br/><br/><br/> <img referrerpolicy="no-referrer-when-downgrade" src="https://a.sweeting.me/matomo.php?idsite=1&amp;rec=1&amp;action_name=Motorbikes" style="border:0" alt="" /> <br/> <br/> --- --- <br/> ## Motorbiking Photo Journal <br/> ### 2015 ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ท ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ด (~35,000mi) <details> <summary><i>Click to expand...</i></summary> <br/> #### 2015-11 ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ท North-America Cross-Country Round-Trip (SF ๐Ÿ๏ธ PDX ๐Ÿ๏ธ Denver ๐Ÿ๏ธ NYC ๐Ÿ๏ธ MTL ๐Ÿ๏ธ Toronto ๐Ÿ๏ธ SF) A ~7,000mi oddysey I took a month after passing the MSF course and getting my motorbike license at age 18.

The engine case cracked around the crankshaft bearing just as I was pulling into Bogota at the end of the trip. It necessitated a mad-dash 3-day repair by 5 guys before my next trip to the desert. They ended up having to braze the engine case back together and re-machine the crankshaft bearing journal (because engine cases are unique to the VIN and aren't legally replacable in Colombia). ![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/5d8d4495-9a05-4d5f-b060-5a36b2aba1ee.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/4c7af4f3-685b-4875-b7f5-47c0fbe0d4c2.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/e2dc68ff-6219-4657-8ab5-3cb1efa7e71e.jpeg) <br/> #### 2017-06 ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ด Medellin Tatacoa Desert Camping Trip (Medellin ๐Ÿ๏ธ Bogota ๐Ÿ๏ธ Tatacoa ๐Ÿ๏ธ Bogota ๐Ÿ๏ธ Medellin) Rode my AKT TTR 180 to Medellin and the Tatacoa observatory in the desert South West of Bogota, Colombia.

All in all a very fun trip. ![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/dea5c7d1-373b-425c-9f2c-152daa12658c.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/46f9a6bb-393a-431a-a9c5-1ee159189a4e.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/16a1729c-2192-490f-b92d-d9cb18a823f3.jpeg) ![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/a31a3e58-24c1-41f3-981d-ff8df17dc556.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/3decc5b1-cba8-4c73-98aa-8bf4065619a8.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/dbd29c2b-7a85-49ba-a814-49ce960f8990.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/76c375d6-d6df-4962-acb4-80fbd7efd4a9.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/24b3b5e2-9ece-4f9c-8b48-702b8952ed7e.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/c085b69c-0302-45f4-b548-11656e5dfa26.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/d721affb-1a2c-4a9e-9cf2-3b190310f3a5.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/cf56b96e-63c1-4955-9f3b-ac4127d5e4d5.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/be44f932-da9d-44c9-ac39-ea5554e50b5c.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/68251e42-5b22-4e63-b655-fcc6f7091ec7.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/91ffc9d3-b405-44b8-91c2-2a34b0752962.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/86ccb9a4-5fad-40fa-8b23-7a4457a1cc9a.jpeg) <br/> #### 2017-11 ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ด Medellin Hills Explorations (... ๐Ÿ๏ธ Medellin ๐Ÿ๏ธ ...)

Due to recent storms the road was wrecked by fallen trees every 100 feet. It took hours to jump or lift my bike over each log, and I ended up having to turn around due to a wash-out 50mi into the forest. Almost drowned the bike twice doing a ~3ft deep ice-cold river crossing. Definnitely forced me to get better at log-jumping. Managed avoid wet-gear hypothermia by finding a motel on the outskirts of the park at 3am. The next weekend I did the same trip again but with my partner to car-camp in one of the areas I found. ![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/67c4cd07-a0d1-4f15-b314-043e73a2dafd.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/4b833a38-bbc8-43c1-8b73-3ffdbca0fd1a.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/bd3a8bac-0c14-45cb-921c-acf0794fa731.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/5bab4a86-b574-4f99-bb1a-d2f9e860e36a.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/25d90d97-1b15-427b-8fb1-3c1eefb0a489.png) <br/> #### 2023-03 ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ Mexico City Hot Springs Tour (SF โœˆ๏ธ Mexico City ๐Ÿ๏ธ Tolantongo ๐Ÿ๏ธ Mexico City โœˆ๏ธ SF) Short ~600km multi-day trip on a rented GS 310 (smaller adventure bike).

- ๐Ÿ“ when riding a new unfamiliar route, prioritize fewer turns over lower total distance - ๐Ÿฆฅ whenever you're lost and retrace your steps, do it at *half* your original speed - ๐Ÿชฉ maintain situational awareness by reading reflections and learning to shoulder check every 5-15sec - ๐Ÿ‘€ signal your intent to yield to another driver by looking *behind* their vehicle (instead of making eye contact) &nbsp; - ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ bicycles countersteer just as much as motorbikes, bicycle steering is all in the hips - ๐Ÿ˜“ reverse calf cramps by dipping your heels on every pedal stroke - ๐Ÿ›ž slightly too high of a PSI is *much* easier to deal with than having pinch flats or dented rims - ๐Ÿ—œ๏ธ installing hydraulic brakes (and clutch) is almost always worth it - โ›“๏ธ don't over-oil/grease sealed chains, clean and dry is better than dirty and wet <br/> ### [๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ Off-Road Trail Finding, Navigation Tips, and Recommended Trails](https://docs.sweeting.me/s/offroad-navigation) โ†’ *How to find, edit, and navigate using GPX route/track files.* <br/> ### [๐Ÿงณ Adventure Gear & Packing Lists](https://docs.sweeting.me/s/packing-lists) โ†’ *A list of what I pack for off-road/outdoor adventures, including tools, medkit, tire kit, winch kit, and more.* <br/> ### [๐Ÿ๏ธ Motorbikes I've Owned & Rented + Maintenance Logs](https://docs.sweeting.me/s/motorbikes-used) โ†’ *A list of the motorbikes I've used, what I like/don't like about them, and stories of how I got them w/ photos.* <br/> ### [๐Ÿ”  How to Ride a Bicycle: Advanced Tips & Tricks](https://docs.sweeting.me/s/how-to-ride-a-bicycle) โ†’ *A guide I've written to explain the trickiest parts of mastering riding on two wheels.* <br/> --- ## Riding Log <br/> ### ๐Ÿงฎ Stats Summary Tallies I use to keep track of my lifetime-cumulative riding stats: :::info ๐ŸŒŽ [~14 countries motorbiked and 20+ countries bicycled](https://matadornetwork.com/travel-map/ea7a0f6b7453fa760b10472ec376f296-1533588043) in 5 continents โ†”๏ธ ~9x cross-country America rides, ~3,000mi coast-to-coast in ~50hr ๐Ÿ—ฟ ~9 Iron Butt rides (>1,000mi in 20hr), and 2x >1,250mi in 24hr ::: :::success ๐Ÿ๏ธ ~260,000mi of street and off-road motorbiking (~8 years) ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™‚๏ธ ~15,000mi of road cycling and mountain biking (~21 years) ๐Ÿ“… ~10yr without going more than 6 weeks between rides on 2 wheels ::: <br/> :::warning ๐Ÿ† **3x [podium finishes](https://docs.sweeting.me/s/racing-journal)** in [enduro](https://www.rallyconnex.com/dacremotorcycle.html) / [adventure motorbiking](https://outbackmotortek.com/la-classique-du-printemps-quebecs-adventure-and-dual-sport-season-opener/) rallies/races (4 entered) ๐Ÿšฒ 2x [podium finishes](https://docs.sweeting.me/s/racing-journal) in [Alleycat](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alleycat_race) bicycle messenger races (2 entered) ::: :::danger ๐Ÿฅ 0 broken bones, 1 sprained ankle, 1 cartilege injury, and a few minor scrapes ๐Ÿ‘ฏ 0 incidents on street or dirt while carrying a passenger on the back (>45,000mi) ๐Ÿ“ก 0 Garmin InReach SOS emergency rescues needed, I've always been able to get home ::: <br/> > Ethos: > - Do dangerous things safely ([ATGATT](https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=ATGATT), continous self-improvement, and patience) > - Plan for the worst, hope for the best (pack tools, spare parts, extra gas, and food) > - Specialization is for insects, learn all things (push myself to learn in a variety of conditions) <br/><br/> ### ๐Ÿ“ Riding GPS Logs An excerpt of some of my GPS track recordings over the last few years exploring the Americas, South Africa, and Europe. <br/> <center> <img src="https://docs.monadical.com/uploads/37a94e1f-ad51-4111-9eff-1b713aa971b2.jpeg" style="max-width: 232px"/> <img src="https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/6023a57e-5245-4bd6-ba73-d8876e510ddb.png" style="max-width: 314px"/> <img src="https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/ccfeb452-673d-47d5-b438-d83b4bcae633.png" style="max-width: 400px"/> *I averaged ~1,000mi/week of riding on FQMHR dirt trails for most of COVID lockdown, kept me happy as a clam ๐Ÿ˜Ž* <img src="https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/03581b15-a7bf-4ebf-a04f-7cfccc830842.jpeg" style="max-width: 345px"/> <img src="https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/11f83f94-0dad-42b0-b4ec-f27ffce5a8f3.jpeg" style="max-width: 303px"/> <img src="https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/81dfe21a-6196-4bd4-976c-792bc75f8617.jpeg" style="max-width: 270px"/> </center> <br/> ### ๐Ÿ”  Teaching Record - I've taught 58 people how to ride from scratch as of (2023-03) (up to the point of doing figure eights in a parking lot w/ shifting and emergency braking) - 11 of my "students" have gone on to get their licenses over the last 8 years - 2 of the people I taught have had injuries during unstructured solo practice *I let them ride unusually far out of my sight on their 3rd lesson, they're my best friends and I overestimated their skill because I love them and think they're badass at everything :cry:* The lesson I learned is to catch myself mistaking quick learning progress + high expectations for mastery. If I'm close to someone I have to be especially careful to not to allow my mental expectation of their overall badassery to rush important milestones and checkpoints in their learning process. ![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/c003d5bc-529e-4aba-be63-b55cfc089702.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/5b69034f-3003-4a7e-8a7a-35450f069780.jpeg) <br/><br/> ### ๐Ÿฆบ Safety Record <br/> **โž• I try to wear All The Gear All The Time, ride quietly + responsibly, and reduce risk exposure wherever possible.** :::success ๐Ÿฅ I've never gotten more than minor road-rash/sprain injuries (healed fully in <6wk) <br/> - 1x sprained ankle - 1x shallow puncture wound - 1x minor cartilege injury - minor road rash (mostly while offroading / on protected trails) <br/> โœ… 0 incidents in ~45,000mi of pillion riding (not once gone down with a passenger on back) ::: <br/> **๐Ÿ’ฅ I've only had 1 major accident on the road in 8 years of riding (in my 1st month riding).** :::danger **2015 road accident:** I was in my first month of riding when I exited the 280 highway near San Mateo. the setting **sun blinded** me as I was going around a decreasing radius highway exit ramp, causing me to go slightly wide and hit a patch of gravel. I slid off into a median and got some minor road rash and a small puncture wound in my knee. I've since learned to always anticipate extreme lighting conditions and immediately raise my visor to reduce glare if visibility is impaired. ::: <br/> **๐Ÿค• I've had a few other minor incidents,** mostly while doing hard enduro training for in controlled conditions where I'm specifically choosing situations to push the limits slightly, knowing that it's not the end of the world if I get a minor injury. :::warning **2016 road close call:** In my first year of riding I followed another car passing a slow car on the mountain ridge by Alice's Restaurant in the Bay Area. A **car pulled out** a hidden driveway into the oncoming lane we were passing in, causing both the lead overtaking car any myself to have to swerve drastically to avoid hitting it. I rode the centerline and grazed the narrow gap between both cars, causing minor bruising on my shins from impacting bumpers on either side. ::: :::warning **2021 enduro training injury:** I was braking hard on mud while practicing in low-traction ice+mud (on the versys 650) on a Quebec FQMHR trail in spring. As my locked front wheel **slid over a large rock** it gripped momentairily and disloged the rock from the mud, rotating it upwards into my skidplate. It taco'ed the skidplate and ramped the bike into the air, and making the end of the handlebars hit me in the chest. I've since learned to always release the brakes a split second before impact with any obstacle so that the front wheel rolls *over* the obstacle instead of trying to slide over it with the brakes locked. ::: :::warning **2022 flat-track training injury:** I was repetitive drifting exercise around a specific dirt corner with a wide dirt landing area. I was trying to push my lean angle further in a controlled environment where sliding out wouldn't be catastrophic. I did end up sliding out on run #20 while capturing [this epic photo](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/ceeca7c8-3db9-4b41-aeb5-60120a93aaff.jpeg) and spraining an ankle, worth it ๐Ÿ˜‰. ::: :::warning **2023 motocross training injury:** I was learning how to ride motocross at a track on my KTM 500 with a coach. After a few hours of warming up and working body positioning, I finally started landing jumps. I got excited and started pushing higher and higher, and after a few laps of succesful jumps keeping pace with the other riders I landed one jump particularly hard. The landing felt solid, but the rebound caught me by surprise, leading to losing my grip and whisky throttling the bike off the track. I slid off the back and tumbled down an embankment, getting some minor scrapes and a [hip pointer](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK538258/) blunt impact injury in the process. I called it a day and rode home painfully on the highway for an hour to get home. I had fiery back/hip/nerve pain for a few days but no serious complications, it took a few weeks to heal with rest and Advil. Unfortunately I later re-injured it & got a slipped disk, but that was caused by carrying a large table down Potrero hill. ::: <br/> #### Some Fun Whoopsie Photos <img src="https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/a0f20298-955f-4b66-88c4-03162a5000ad.jpeg" style="width: 160px"/> <img src="https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/b667eea1-2ff4-49e3-8301-dd1510f56ca0.jpeg" style="width: 290px"/> <img src="https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/d4f3f423-687e-426c-8501-cb32e5520394.jpeg" style="width: 270px"/> <img src="https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/0019dbb4-92d6-444f-84fb-2fb057eb79fe.jpeg" style="width: 190px"/> <img src="https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/e8001bfc-7dac-42aa-b1e1-6d64eea59a88.jpeg" style="width: 340px"/><img src="https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/5777fe59-e993-45e3-bd0f-39556d4639f9.jpeg" style="width: 190px"/><img src="https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/c6f469c3-2c06-4e2f-a186-2e05522cb0f4.jpeg"/><img src="https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/ceeca7c8-3db9-4b41-aeb5-60120a93aaff.jpeg" style="width: 150px"/> ![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/d3834633-6648-4f83-9501-e87e75169567.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/a609297a-876a-411f-a738-aa7915f25d28.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/216cb238-bba9-418a-8ae8-fc8fe4abd840.jpeg) <br/><br/> --- --- <br/> ## More Photos & Videos ![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/092dafff-dac2-4c37-bf4f-61f360b3c0b3.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/1b21763f-c94f-4139-be95-d34495cad09b.png)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/35fcb21e-f6c5-4aac-a832-0571ba7cb9e5.png)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/4c225fb0-16b0-4cbf-835f-d89d4ffbe5e9.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/ffb216e0-5fd6-4d9c-882d-a527b8e39937.png)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/d84e443a-47f4-4998-8986-2a477bbea9e1.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/dd63d211-91fc-4ee7-91c9-e9c04a3f3c75.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/9e5a1104-c9f9-4587-b849-17fa7eb9ae7f.png)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/7dd540f7-0827-4825-b733-7172ff903409.png)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/69ff8277-56cb-4264-98a5-e104ab9844a1.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/046fdfc0-312b-48a3-bdc0-218d9032cac8.png)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/faa0af55-1d44-4639-9fbf-0643d7416de1.png)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/d59ba4f8-b485-46be-b495-446877c95ca3.png)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/7f2ef851-e6f4-4ec0-a61d-6eef47b5ea1c.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/1bb93e0f-1da5-4717-aab1-615e0e100ae8.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/a58daa47-a399-4175-8b7d-88e0a04ccfb6.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/7b3198a5-645c-4377-9897-622b30c253cd.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/efff2645-6a5f-4545-9aa5-bb39fd0aca7e.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/1e4f4598-333a-4410-9bae-27ec625f4754.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/827dee9e-8c3f-4ecb-930e-c0f70a7c638b.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/55e0fa07-bf53-4c5a-8791-ae7e7d26ede2.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/d3f0a94d-e072-454d-b707-3ad437b0bf1e.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/4d96f22d-6b9d-40d2-bb9b-8b1ea3b2d6c3.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/2723ec83-f42e-4fc3-bb15-6780f1260aeb.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/377395c1-2a78-4ca2-be61-dedcd47c8f1a.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/c17d0017-0d01-4569-8562-382123e506ab.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/1c1ed692-ddcc-407c-aa3a-7192a2a4da63.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/b5a3cee7-da25-44c1-8c7c-3ffc3e3eb02e.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/20da55aa-121c-4c5f-8cfd-675565b59a59.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/6493f7d2-87c0-4e50-be99-588482f00f32.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/332b7b92-1adf-4b21-a99a-3ab8d16ce08b.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/1df5f20a-bffc-4935-a429-0c8cb07f102a.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/b982c78f-52fa-4f9c-b186-3ed2babfd6d4.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/0b11f784-8615-46a3-b76e-5f11ba150d61.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/56a9b72d-76b3-4324-b5f2-6e15ec3f09ab.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/33b5fc50-eee4-4774-81bd-c09800c6562c.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/5ddfa9ad-9c0a-4a8b-85f5-94b192a95da9.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/9ca685af-9946-4a4f-819d-f064f9311fe5.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/0a8b2222-f611-4277-930c-f9f6bcc3f884.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/377bc868-e320-4235-b03f-4dbc6f78df8f.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/cbebb22b-3b76-453d-b2c5-a506c7b6e896.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/c41b8ae7-104c-47ad-9440-3379b2b95ab2.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/179fda9f-f494-431c-9e22-e667f0d14d16.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/5a147ae0-eed7-4265-85b3-14bc2e276dec.jpeg)![](https://docs.sweeting.me/uploads/17e0d3d0-6c92-44db-bd58-ece3b65db270.jpeg) ### USA & Canada Videos <iframe style="width: 48%;
