I headed this thread like this for I usually do a video of my longer trips, sometimes daytrips also. This time was touring in Baltic countries. It was the first longer trip with my AT. I've managed to adjust the ergonomics quite good, but for the saddle I must still do something. Maybe Seat concepts, or waiting for the Sargent.

Here we go:

Made a long weekend tour to northern Sweden last weekend. The fall coulours were just beginning to be as their best. No freezing temperatures yet, Sun-Mon about +8⁰ C, Tuesday about +4⁰ C.

At the beginnig I was not very happy with the TKC 70 tires when I changed them on. But now, after 4000 kms I'm pretty happy. For the "stiff" handling on slow turns you cannot help, but the sensitivity for grooves and scrathes on tarmack is not so bad anymore when the pattern has rounded a bit. No significant wear is not yet to be seen. The grip both on dry and wet tarmack is excellent. On dry it's easy to scratch footpegs on tarmack. The Sargent seat is way better than OEM, but the longitude profile is not quite as good as it was on R 1200 GS. The best place for sitting is a bit too far rear, from which I tend to be sliding a bit forward. All in all, no problems sitting 10 hours a day on the saddle, three days in row. Next week I'll take my bike for 12 000 km service. Not a single problem yet.

The continuation war ride I. https://youtu.be/8gd0tWGw72U

During WWII Finland had two wars against Sovien Union, Winter War, 1939-1940 and Continuation War 1941-1944. This is a video of the ride to Ilomantsi, where the major battles took place during summer 1944, in the final stages of the continuation war. Finnish troops succeeded in fighting the great Soviet attack and got a better position for peace negotiations. Soviets didn't anymore ask for surrender without conditions.
