    Hi everyone. I saw Roman from TFL did a short review of his 690r and contacted him. Not sure if you are aware TFL started an off road series on Youtube so I loaned him my 1290sar. Enjoy.

    I saw it today. Good on ya for loaning it to them for the segment. I know where those guys have their office and met Mr Truck (Kent) in Nederland this summer.

    Tough crowd :jack Maybe the thumbnail was a bit over the top and wasn't representative of the actual content. Maybe this was more of interest to those like me (and the OP) who are local to that TFL outfit. Reading off a long list of add-ons needed is no big revelation either. We all know that too well.

    I have to agree. I think there is some good info in the video for someone considering purchasing one of these bikes. Not much new info for us that have them already. 0-60 will never work on gravel. Haha.

    The Chris Birch videos are spectacular. But there really isn't that many 1290SAR videos. I think TFL does a really good job filming and editing their videos. I have a Ram Power Wagon and have been a fan of TFL Truck for a long time.

    @Jmarklowitz I follow TFL and saw that video. Thanks for loaning your bike to them for the review. More exposure and cross-pollination can't hurt.
