Test ride video from Germany

Postby atractaspis » Fri Feb 28, 2014 11:30 pm

Guy said he loved riding it and that it didn't feel like the r1200r (as he expected) but has a totally different feel riding it. Also says the only thing he wished they would have done differently (besides instrument cluster) was that it had the sport ABS brakes like the 1000rr. Apparently he had a bad experience on some very wet and slick road. And it does look to me at the end of the video that he did go down.. Or am I just imagining that the side mirror is cracked at the end of the video?

Great vid. Believe it was just a reflection, as he still looked pretty well intact. :D

I might not have paid too much attention (busy drooling over bike), but I don't think he said that in the German version of it. He did say though that he had a close call with it due to slippery wet roads and he won't tell his wife about it. Hope she doesn't watch this then. Ha!

Angelr I think you are correct. Just a reflection of that tree ... :lol:
