"This video has good information for those just entering the adventure touring riding. Even though this is BMW F800 specific it also has general information useful to all who want to explore off-road riding. I found the Bio's of different riders and the modifications done to their F800's very interesting. It was helpful in making a more informed decision in my personal modification choices."
BMW F800GS Just Do IT Manual!

"For those riders who have discovered the sheer magic of this new bike from BMW, they will obviously want to use it in far more remote places than your other bike (in my case the Harley). This DVD is a folksy but accurate and very useful way to learn how to change the tyres and do all the other basic maintenance that you will need to know to go offroad. For a screwdriver klutz like me, this is a real gem. Thank you."
For F800GS owners it's a winner

"This is a very good primer for the new F800GS owner. (That would be me.) Exceeding detail, good tips in the vein of "I've done this five different ways, made lots of mistakes, so here's how to do it right."
I thought there might be more video of actual riding, and riding technique. There's none. There may be one minute of riding - a sequence of people dropping their bikes in a muddy spot and crossing a creek. The title, "F800GS Adventure Touring Instructional DVD" is misleading. There's not much about adventure touring, except all the farkle you can set up your bike with.
I wouldn't recommend this for anyone who doesn't have this bike - it's four hours of very specific info. But I feel way more informed about my particular machine now."
