    Cool vid.

    I'm liking the R model 1190. Had a look at the standard 1190 Adv the other day with a mate that's thinking of buying one and didn't like it. Felt to small under me. I'd deform go for the longer suspension in the future if they ever came within my price range.

    Great perspectives, love seeing the front suspension in action and the 'motogpesque' forward look from the back - well done!

    thanks for your comments. Gopro was mounted with standard Go pro mounts. It's easy as the bike has many bars (crash bars and luggage mounts).

    Cool vid - thanks for sharing.
    Did you just use the gopro on its own or have an external mic attached?

    No external mic, just the internal one with open door and tape for the wind. Sound is not good, I've not found the right solution to have a correct sound with no wind....

    Thanks Flyphil - do you mean the clear plastic cover is left open - open door?

    Sorry for my poor english.... I mean I used the door with holes on it for sound. But I put some tape on the hole in order to reduce the wind noise. But I'm not satisfied with the result.

    Very nice footage!!

    Changing around the perspectives often and keeping it failry short makes a guy want to watch it more than once while still keeping a persons interest piqued.

    Beautiful countryside as well! I have been to Portugal and Spain, and would love to explore France at some point!
