Trip through ALPS
« on: September 08, 2018, 07:38:35 PM »
I have done 2 weeks trip through Alps( France, Switzerland, Austria, Italy).
Was traveling with my wife as a passenger.
Bike performs really well, trip was easier then we expected :)
Will add my trip prepration vid and some mountain passes videos.
If you want more please subscribe my channel( will post more vids from my journey).
Ask for some advice and tips if needed
Sorry for my broken English :)

Watched the first 2 videos my friend, great route you completed, was the tank bag a magnetic one?! Did your good lady have enough access/room to get her feet on the pegs from the panniers?  Fair play to her as well as I dont think my ass could take that far a journey on a S1000R pillion seat!

Yes, tank bag is magnetic, i put some magnets under plastic tank cover( use double sided duck tape).
My wife did not complain about leg room, its same as without side paniers.
She rides with me 80% of my riding time, maybe she used to that small seat, before had sportsbike (was worse).
Both of us can do about 300miles before our asses become numb, after that its abit harder...( maximum per day we done 525miles)
