Great video , I have rode that road a few times some years back, MCN in the UK penned it "The Road to Nirvanna". They were not wrong !!!

I was lucky, there was a film crew shutting down the road, in the beginning I had to stop for a few seconds but as result a completely empty road as result.
North Spain and south France are super.

Interesting road. No lane marking. What is the legal speed limit on these roads?

Speed limit outside rural areas in spain is 90kmH.
On the first video, I was able to exceed that speed because there was almost no traffic at all and even than the max was third gear and revving up to 7000.
Second video also 90 kmh. That road runs from east to west in the north of Spain from very wide to narrow.
Luckily Spain is still a bike minded country.
:-)

I wish they still made the MM. It's almost the perfect bike: big, upright, naked, punchy engine with good economy, can take a bit of luggage, shaft driven.

I'm pining for one badly.

Any chance BMW would make one with the watercooled boxer engine?

Carbon screen looks good - just trying to find out if he will post to Australia.

Anyone know who makes them?

I highly doubt it. There's a better chance of an HP2 Enduro coming back than the MegaMoto. Watch for an upcoming PCH RR from me. My MegaMoto will be loaded up for the 8 day trip.

Yeah I noticed the add says shipment Italy after I checked it again yesterday.
I like the carbon also but still doubt how it will look in real life.

Where abouts did you get yours from? Looks like it will do the job.

Where did you get your handlebar pad from?

These pictures come from serrispecial and thus this is not one of my bikes. I would not ride a bike that has an anus sticker on it :-)

The pad you can order at BMW dealer, I think it was meant for the HP2 Enduro.
