Super video J-P. Anyone would think you did that for a living  :002:

I love the narrow tarmac roads, and I wish I could go that fast on the gravel. Even at my speed, it's still fun though.

I've never been on the Belgium roads to the west of Luxembourg - lots like I'll have to plan a day-trip.

What's with the logo in the middle of the video though?

Very nice, JP,
seeing all those very small roads. And your speed is challenging on those without tarmac.
I would like to that too but can I? Think I will try some time.

Doc, that logo is a watermark of the compressing program I used to get 2,5 GB of film into 1Gb of film...

Indeed, these roads are splendid. It was a test if I could do them with the Trail Attack 2, a bit iffy I think. By the time I rode into the forest bit I discovered my traction control was still on. End of June my ABS will be switchable. I would like to turn it off in circumstances like this.
