It’s a tale as old as time: Good guy versus bad guy. Cop versus robber. Jail escapee versus sheriff… On a dirt bike and UTV? Some very creative liberties were taken in Mil Maneras de Vivir and we’re thankful that was the case. Yamaha took to a Wild West-look-alike set in Spain’s Oasys MiniHollywood theme park to show what a modern-day good-guy-bad-guy tango would look like. They landed with special guests in tow, both man and machine: Enduro legend Pol Tarres rides a Yamaha Ténéré 700 and Ahikar Azcona hoons the RMAX2 1000 XT-R in this spectacular video.

Mil Maneras de Vivir, or A Thousand Ways to Live, evokes memories of the Wild West movies that so many of us grew up watching. The setting is right, the feel is right, but it’s even better because what would be horses in yesteryear are replaced by two of Yamaha’s best off-road machines. The Ténéré 700 is one of the brand’s newest motorcycles and hottest adventure-tourer, and it finds a formidable competitor in the RMAX2 1000 XT-R, admittedly not the company’s sportiest or most hardcore side-by-side, but a fantastic machine nonetheless. The scene for the two is set in traditional Wild West jailbreak fashion, but we won’t spoil for you which machine plays good or evil.

Fun was most definitely had making this video.Ross Ballot

We all love a cross-discipline UTV-motorcycle video, and this is one we’re thoroughly amused by. It’s two friends having a good time, giving the Yamahas a good thrashing. Not only is the riding and driving outright amusing, there’s some true talent both by the rider and driver and filmmakers and storytellers alike. Do yourself a favor and give Mil Maneras de Vivir a watch; it’s a guaranteed good time. And keep an eye out for when those on camera are having such an enjoyable time that they can barely contain their smiles and/or laughs; we couldn’t contain ours.
