    Three of the Players joined the BMW club of Ottawa on their 2012 ART School. (Advanced Rider Training.) The event took place at Calabogie Motorsports Park about an hour past Ottawa. We had to sort out our machines before getting them inspected. New tires, fluids, chains and sprockets and a general clean up were required. Chris and Riley trailered their bikes (wimps) from Montreal and Cuz'n Charles road from Toronto like a real man. Fantastic event and we all learned a lot. The event is not about lap time but more about proper cornering technique. The organization was fantastic and the instructors on the track and in the classroom were top notch.

    :clap

    I was at Touratech last week talking with Iain and he showed me that paddle tire. Listening to him tell me about it it was obvious they had a blast running the bike in the sand. Iain told me it even cleared the add-on inner rear fender they sell to help keep the water, mud, and now sand, off the rear shock.

    Thanks for posting part-2.

    After watching the videos now it all makes sense why Iain was so pumped about how the bike handled with the paddle tire.

    Oh, and the tire still looked in pretty good shape when I saw it.

    May seem like a dumb question, but....

    How do we do direct links to youtube videos like the ones in here. I've tried copy pasting the complete link and I can't see it in preview. I've tried doing it the same as a few different formats that I've seen in this thread and they don't seem to work.

    Scratching my head. No it's not head lice.

    Select the embed option in youtube and copy that. It doesn't show up properly for me even when I post to Advrider unless I do at least one refresh. Check here

    Awesome Players! Woo! :freaky

    Inspiration there. I have all the pieces in place to take my 800gs to the track and I keep thinking, 'why?' I think 'why not' is more where my head is at after watching this.

    Based on the experience you guys had that day, do you think it's possible for someone with track riding experience to get their knee down on the 800gs? Has anyone ever done it on this bike before? I've looked but I haven't found anything.

    I don't know if you could get your knee down since the bike is tall but it would be fun to try!

    Cheers, will try again.

    Some boring 2 up riding in National Parks.

    I swear a lot. Didn't know I did. So you've been warned.

    <iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/979zmDYoiHw" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Background:

    Standard gearing, D952 front/Mitas E09 rear, with pillion and camping gear, approx 430kg load out.

    I'm braking down below 1000rpm at times. The engine does some funny things when you do that. If you clutch in it tends to stall and you lock the rear wheel and it all goes pear shaped. If it doesn't stall when you clutch in, the rear wheel locks any way and it all goes pear shaped. I'm just trying to get it to walk down the incline over rocks and loose crap without it running away on me. This is about as steep as the F800 will play 2 up, both climbing and descending. It is a real workout.

    This was one of my first forays off-road with wifey on the bike with me. I have learned some interesting ways around the BMWs traits since then.

    I had just prior to this fitted the Ohlins rear shock and front springs. Rear spring rate was 17kg/mm, front .55. I bottom it a few times during this clip. But there is one good hit.

    Just released our 4th EP. Shot mostly in Lockhart Basin in Moab

    We try to work hard on story, and I mean Actual Story, not made up crap on most reality TV, and I think we did a pretty good job on this one. Quite a few funny parts.

    But I understand some of you just want to see bike, so here are some Bike heavy areas / cool shots:

    13:08

    And here is the Video:

    Episode 4 "Laugh and Cry" from Hiline Productions on Vimeo.


    Also, for perspective, the bike is totaly stock from a performance standpoint, only protection (hand, skid, crash, and wind) has been added.

    IE, no fueling changes, steering stabilizer, or suspension mods.

    Thanks for watching, and hope you like it!!

    Excellent.

    The only way to learn sand riding results in sand in your underwear.

    It's like a rule or something.
