    All sympathy for any grey RS ownership just evaporated once you said "pre christmas ride" and showed the dry Houston roads.

    Just subscribed - looks like I've got something different to view rather than more pre-trip shots of Norway where the roads are also traffic free.
    Thanks for posting, Dave

    You are most welcome, Dave. :) Hey there has to be some advantage to living in Houston. We have to cope with the high temperatures and humidity for the summer and also parts of spring and fall too. Today again it is 86 deg.F and the humidity is not that low. But the hellish weather is not here just yet. :)

    Thanks for subscribing. I have slowed down posting lately but have a whopper of a video in my mind - a review after 15k miles and 1.5 years of ownership! There are precious few RS videos to begin with and the few that there are, are not too useful for one is interested in this bike past 5 minutes of ownership. This review would likely be over more than one take and will cover components, riding, working on it,and whatever else I can think of. It probably won't be too short but ask me if I care ... ? It will be for one with an attention span longer than today's millennial, or whatever they are called ....

    Then there is the Arkansas Ride In - I will be vlogging on that trip also, so that will be coming in May. Also when I work on the bike I might decide to record it too -- seems like those DIY videos are most popular, judging by the relatively larger number of views. Can be a PITA when you have to think about a camera and moving it around all while working on the bike with greasy hands etc. It would be a cold day in hell before SWMBO would come and assist. ;)

    Lastly, I plan do do more moto-camping videos since I am a camper (even if in an RV sometimes) and like the challenge of being self sufficient on the bike, including bringing my own dehydrated food!

    Then there is this drone with HD camera that I bought/got for Christmas - somehow I have to get videos of that too ... maybe not while riding, but most likely while RV camping. Who knows ... got to fly it a second time and more after that ... :D

    I am still learning how to create and edit good interesting videos, so that is a work in progress.

    As of an hour ago, I am on 4.5 days of forced vacation (use it or lose it days carried over from 2016) and was toying with the idea of going to the Three / Twisted Sisters in the Texas Hill Country but I have a lot of work and rain is forecasted for Friday. I need to be back for Saturday as a few dealerships have demo rides and one also has breakfast and lunch, and I am interested in possibly trying a different bike or two (with a test ride video). Then starting on next Tuesday I go to Istanbul and Athens on business (hence the work to get done before leaving!) for a week and a half. If I were young and crazy I'd rent a bike in Greece and go for a ride ... :D

    Go ride the Sisters. No need for test rides when you already have a R1200RS. :)

    Oh I will ride the Sisters one day, or that you can be sure.

    As for the test rides ... in all honesty it is not because I am second-guessing my bike. I am doing it for the fun and also for the YouTube views .... Who knows, one day the site could take off and generate some income. :)

    Maybe for shits and grins I will go test this one ... :D Only 1/2 mile up the road from my dealership.

    Heheh ... when I said celebrity, I was thinking more of a person like the Missenden Flyer from your side of the pond, or heaven forbid, Mr Ben Brown - check out how many subscribers he has!

    That said Old Man Tony looks interesting .... may watch his videos later.
