    Good afternoon form the uk im glym a new member ive been riding for 36yrs and have just purchased my first bmw i thought they were for old people how wrong i was  :431:

     :400: to the herd..

    I thought they were for old people too, so I went and bought one, I'm 62  :008:

    I bought mine from Jem's last November, wonder if you bought the other, there were 2, I chose the Red (fast) one..  :164:

    I live in Leeds but work in Dewsbury.. on your door step, so to speak. Looking at meeting up with Antares at some point for a ride out, maybe you could join us. Can't have to many riding buddies..  :001:

    I will be 59 in April and have been riding for many years ( 32) as well.  Just wondering if we should have an "old Timers" thread?  lol :046:

    Its amazing to see how far technology on bikes has become.  The XR has so much, even my 2017 Ducati is missing many of the features. I remember when disc brakes were a fancy upgrade lol.

    Very similar to how I felt about bicycles having disc brakes, in my head, rim brakes are plenty enough to lock the wheels why'd you ever want discs... Little did I know... They are pretty much fully commonplace nowadays.

    Had my tech light bulb moment when I bought this, it's now old hat and goes to the dealer tomorrow to get P/X'd I have no doubts where motorcycles are going in the very near future.
