    Great New Videos of GT and GTL

    These are onboard videos and seem to to have been taken in South Africa. The riders really give the bikes a workout. You can clearly hear what seems to be hard parts scraping in the GTL video.

    Cool. There's more wind noise on the GT video, but I didn't hear any scritches. It sure sounded like the GTL touched down quite a bit. But they both were pushing the corners harder than I probably will. I'm ready!

    Where were they, riding on the proper side of the road rather than the right? (Snow forecast today here. )

    I'm guessing South Africa, where BMW has done a number of new bike press intros.

    Videos pretty good

    I think the wind noise is due to the camera placed on the saddle bag outside or in the turbulent arir-stream area.

    Seems to have good grunt but not strikingly more than the 1300

    Great awesome sound from the 6!!!

    Nice work BMW
