Nice ride,liked the vid and can see why you are wearing down that tyre :icon_wink:. :thumb:
I hope this is taken as a constructive and purely personal view ,but.
 I found the music was too high in the mix for my liking ,so I watched with the sound right down.Nothing wrong with the track choice ,just too loud.More engine ,less music would be my choice,but that I reckon is hard to get at speed.
Still liked the vid though , good work. :thumb:

Great video, love the split screen views.

I was in Scotland last June and it was boiling. Great to see the rivers and lochs (non tidal of course) full of water again. I'm due back up in May and again in June.... I can't wait.

On the tyres: A mate used to drive a 6.6 litre Pontiac Firebird and I had a 5 litre 1966 Ford Mustang. Even then we used to accept that petrol was just a consumable and if we worried how much we would use, we wouldn't use any. In your case it's tyres. If you're having a great time wearing your tyres out.... then, they become the same as petrol, hotels and food.

The older I get, the better I was.

Beautifully filmed and edited, but it seemed like a promo for bike and scenery rather than telling story which might have been a nice finishing touch.
