    Hello ADVRiders!!!

    I'm not a usual user of the forum, but I've posted some topics of my trips over the last couple years, and this year I made a really special trip. I've started in Spain (where I live), went down to Cape Agulhas in South Africa on the African West Coast, and then went up to NordKapp in Norwey across the African East Coast and crossing Eastern European Countries, and finaly went down to Spain, thru Nurburgring (Yes, i did a lap there!) then the Italian Alps and finally at home. All done in 77 days and 76 nights.

    It has been a freakin' awesome trip for me, a real experience, and now I just want to share with you the final short video that tries to explain what I did. I hope you guys enjoy it seeing as much as I've enjoyed producing it!

    Absolutely wonderful video. Life reaffirming. Feeling of freedom. Just terrific.

    If you do not mind, I will be using your hand swipe to introduce the title in my next little video I make.
