This seems to be an official R1200R video from BMW that they call "Rock n' Roll". The R1200R looks too good in this video, this sure beats just seeing R1200R still photo's. Does anyone recognize any of the scene's in the video?

I see what looks to be the Canadian flag at 0:24 mark, maybe they filmed the R1200R in Canada?

what do you think bmw's motive was with this R1200R commercial? It's all just clips of the R1200R riding in different scene's. Usually manufactures talk a bit about the product in vid's like this.

Nice video ! Enjoyed it.
Although it does resemble a flag,
think that is a red & white colored wind sock on the bridge at :24
The vehicle plates in the video are European.
Good Post !

A little bit of San Francisco and Marin County are featured quickly.

I believe that was a promo for the 2014 model.

Love the rock n' roll roadster video, it's just a lot of fun and love for the bike! I like to watch it when I'm missing my bike during these snowy months.

Doc dogg...that's just cool!

It's not San Francisco, this was filmed in Lisbon Portugal.
0:16 & 0:25 look very much like the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, but it very well may be the Golden Gate Bridge in Lisbon :dizzy:

the "Ponte 25 de Abril" (25th of April bridge) in Lisbon is similar to the Golden Gate Bridge in San. Fran. Being originally from Portugal, I recognized of few other things that make it Lisbon. Also, the bike and the cars have European plates. The BMW brochure for the 2014 R was also shot in Lisbon
