Dumb & Dumber is one of the most infamous comedies of the last few decades and for good reason. Either idolized or despised by the viewing audience, the classic has stood the test of time and remains one of the most well known and quotes movies to date. Being able to quote the film seamlessly is almost commonplace in society now and days, what’s not however, is attempting the infamous mini bike trip… until now.
RevZilla’s Common Trend members Ari Henning and Zack Courts recreated the 350+ mile journey from Nebraska to Aspen on their very own custom built, scale mini bike replica! The pull-start bike complete with streamers and basket was just the start however, the whole journey wouldn’t have been worth it without bringing along a suitcase! The team researched the most probable rout the dynamic duo could’ve traveled, mapped it out, and headed for the Rockies!
The journey was not without its challenges as one may suspect, the team blowing out two back tires from the pressure of the trip. The small unstable frame of the bike made for a difficult time navigating through high wind speeds and curves while trying to remain stable. More issues the pair encountered can be found in their account of the trip and the process leading up to it here on RevZilla, where they also detail a few encounters with the law.
The guys made the long hull to Aspen, “Some place warm, a place where the beer flows like wine, where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano”, proving the ridiculous completely possible. Dressed head to toe in their best Harry and Lloyd attire, Briefcase in hand, and a “hog” that’ll get 70, or at least close to, miles to the gallon! Let’s just hope they didn’t do it all for a girl named Mary!

We just have one more question, was John Denver a load of shit, man?
