Your camera makes the ride look relatively stable and bump free, but was there a lot of vibration when you took the G310R off-road?

A little bit, but it tackles bad road very well. Felt I had very good control on bad ground

I'd be more afraid of hitting those potholes, so many of them all over those back roads. Did you manage to dodge them all or ride straight into them like I would inadvertently do.

If the g310r only has a little bit of vibration on gravel/dirt roads, I imagine the GS model's ride to feel like butter assuming BMW changes the suspension setup.

Are you using some sort of gimbal or something ?! That's super stable or was it just really that smooth?

Have you got aftermarket mirrors? They look different to the stock mirrors.

The mirrors look different to my mirrors, might have something to do with local requirements?

See attached picture of my mirrors.
