I was out for a run with the Elefant yesterday, almost 200 miles through the Highlands, from Speyside to the Cairngorm National park, to Royal Deeside, up to the Cairn a' mount and home via Dufftown, heart of Speyside malt whisky.
I do have a few photo's but thought I'd share this video clip, it goes part of the way to showing why I love the Elefant so much! The sound, the lean angle, the handling, simply stunning! Hope it works!
Enjoy!

That engine indeed sounds great. Now, if perhaps you could ride on the proper side of the road ;-)

Cheers guy's, yes, it seems to go fine!
I pay all my road tax hence use whatever side feels best at the time! ;)

I shoved it on to youtube to post. Just bought a Gopro so just learning so far. Good for explaining the roads you're on to other folk! I'll never make a film producer, no patience! LOL!

720S - 60 Paul, YouTube possibly compresses that? Looks good any how!
I'd certainly not call the Elefant a soup spillers bike! It's not ridiculous fast, 115mph be about it.
I'll take more video soon, nice twisties, see if you can hear the pegs scrape! Lol!
I just wanted to show everyone why I thought the Elefant was the better bike than both my RD04 Africa Twin and 700 Transalp. The video goes some way toward explaining, but of course, that's a personal opinion!

There's now't like a "L Twin" having the tater's thrapped off it !!!

I always wanted a Lucky Elefant, but I do think my 650 Japanese geisha pipped the old latin girl on looks!!
