6 days to wait
on: May 14, 2018, 11:26:46 AM
Hi all and thanks for having me
Unfortunately I’ve got to wait 6 days until
I can pick up my 2300 mile 2015 XR
Having owned the ZZR 1400 and a Triumph Tiger I think I’ve now found the perfect blend
I had a 1 1/2 hour test ride on Saturday but was hooked on the first bypass once I got used to the quickshift  :008:
Full BMW luggage will be used in September when we go off to the Pyrenees for two weeks

I took mine for a test drive, and just kept going.  I sent a check in the mail.  Thank goodness it arrived before the constable knocked on my door.

Anyhow, we’re happy to have you here, and if you do not post pictures of the roads in the Pyrenees for us to enjoy, you owe all 1000+ members a pastry of their choice.

I will be doing a few days on the N260 end of July beginning of August as part of a big tour. It is indeed a great road. What i like is the fact it changes its not all once type of riding. All of it is pretty good though :-)
