Hey Renegader
I watched every episode in 2013 as they did a tour around Ontario and New York state on the GT yet they really said not much about the GT's capability or its features (Norm Wells not doing his job). I did not see the episode of the 600 review.

Now I just finished watching the review, Dave referred the scooter as being a 600cc a few times. (did you catch the GT in the background)

Dave did not mention how the wind screen moves or the heated seats or the heated grips or any other wonderful features on the scooter that were there bottom line the high line package. BMW Canada should go over the bike before it gets a review (Norm Wells not doing his job again).

Yes the host could have did a lot more research and talk about the GT model also. Never realized the lack of storage on the sport model. That kinda stinks now that im used to my GT. I sensed the typical surprise from the girl rider or anyone else when they ride one of these. Hey this thing is kinda cool!

Hey there. Great to hear!

The BMW Roads segment is really all about the places they travel to, the history etc. Not really about the bikes that they ride. They touch very briefly on them but it certainly isn't the focus of that segment.

When we cut these road test features, we cut them from 20 minutes down to about 4 minutes, so some things are left on the cutting room floor so to speak. They definitely talked about them but it didn't make it to the final show due to time constraints.

I've often thought about taking the entire 20 minute road test impression and uploading it to YouTube so viewers can get an extra look at the bikes that are road tested.
 
Renegader - is it 20 minutes or so with commentary or does commentary get added after trimming? There are some shows on TV where they say "for a full review go to...." so it would be a good idea.
Seem to recognize some of the locations as being in and around Picton, expecially the airport. Is that where it's mostly done?

Yes. All road tests are done in Prince Edward County except for when dealers are having product launches and then we'll test bikes at those locations.

The road tests are 20 minutes raw and then 1 to 2 minutes of voiceover are added to the final 4-5 minute road test.
