France. BMWGS1200 and Honda NT700

Andy and I have been buddies since we were 11. Our latest adventure saw us on our motorbikes to Northern Span and Southern France. A 2013 new watercooled BMW GS1200 and my 2010 Honda NT700 Deauville. Our plan was to zig zag the Pyrenees but constant and heavy rain dogged our every mile. After a snowy and really horrible few days we bailed out and rode to the south coast of France riding for a few days through the beautiful Languedoc-Roussillon, just north of Montpellier. Superb roads, excellent food and welcoming locals make this a highly recommended and rewarding destination.

Great video. Thanks for sharing.

I'm touring southern France on my Pan-European next month. I hope the weather in the Pyrenees will be better!

Looks like you had some good soggy fun.

Excellent video! Love the varied camera positions. Great music choice too.
So much better than that head banging stuff I hear on many of the
videos.
DO MORE VIDEOS!!!!!

Have camera will travel.

Thanks for kind comments. I think I may be adding some views to this video as I keep looking back and remembering what a good trip it was. I can quite easily see why Jupiter and the like just kept on going. Sitting on the 6th floor looking at the rain or sitting on my 'iron horse' in the rain? no brainer.

For anybody that wants a video made for them, I am available at very reasonable rates. :-)

Great video!

Just the right length to convey the fun you had.

Helps to prove that a not so great day on a bike trip beats just about anything other than a great day on a motorcycle trip.

Plienmont...I'm in the Pyrenees and as said the weather has been diabolically WET...BUT, I am pleased to say has now returned to normal; was out on the bike today and it was roasting, so you will more than likely have a HOT ride...at least I hope so after saying that.. surely there is no rain left to fall


Nice video guys

Cheers
Potski

Please do. My only complaint was that the video was too short.
