Not to question the 1190R capabilities, but on the 30:00 minute you pointed us to see, did you see the bike that also made up the hill with the gigantic rut? A sport bike on slick tires.

Not sure how much offroad experience he has, but the 1190R does a fine job. Lots of water crossings, deep ruts and pretty steep tracks.

You can enjoy the full hour or skip to 30:00 and wipe the grin off your face.

Yeah. I was most impressed with the Hornet--the yellow bike. A 990 Honda?

It is a hornet 600! The owner is out to prove that no one needs an adventure bike. His hornet can go anywhere I can. It is most entertaining. He continually reminds me that I paid $22k and he paid $2k.

I was never going to post that video on this forum. I knew I would cop a beating

It's a great video Nerb, thanks a lot for the time and care that you put in to make it - you definitely shouldn't cop a beating for that one ...

But, let's hope no-one finds part 3
