Isn't that the Stelvio Pass at the end, with all the switchbacks?

The bad news is that is 205 - been posted on here a while back.

The good news is that it is worth seeing again. And again. Thanks.

Well, since we are bringing back the classics, how about this German R75/5 ad? If you look closely, it's actually a R50/5: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vaTPaZ4Bx-w&feature=g-vrec

Well, judging by the Rolls Royce and palatial mansion, I'm guessing he's going for a ride around the property. Maybe just down to the stables and back...?

Center stand spin?

What I really liked other than all of it was how he spun the bike around 180 on the center stand, rather than backing out into 3 point turn like I do. Tried it this morning, and like getting it up on the stand I'm sure there's a trick to make it easier. Scratched the hell out ta my driveway, so I'm pretty sure the way I did it wasn't it.

I thought that was pretty cool too. I am going to have to try it - maybe on concrete is a better idea.
