Filmed July 2017 Heading for Disentis CH, a mountain road gets thinner and the pavement disappears. We encounter a few obstacles on the way. Credit to my mates on a BMW S1000RR and Suzy GSXF1250A !!

Cheers  :thumb: It was quite a day, we started at the bottom of pass on a typical twisty tarmac climb, following the planned SatNav route, when after about an hour the tarmac ended and the road turned to well a bit of all sorts. We decided to tackle it not knowing if this was just a short stretch of road,as sometimes in europe, the road surface can be literally torn up and the road remained open. Then the rain started...the only thing that kept us going was a fuel station ahead indicating some kind of civilisation..that's the station where the video ends. A great trip..but a little daunting for the lads on the sports bike, especially the 200BHP RR! It was close when we had to pass the jack knifed log tractor...traction control light comes on a few times, didn't notice this at the time. Our mate was lucky we caught his bike...there was quite a drop
