Respects from Portugal ... new GTR fanatic presentation.
« on: March 23, 2014, 04:32:16 pm »
Hi all, first congratulations for this great place.
I'm Marco and I'm a 100% Portuguese motorcycle addict... I don't imagine live without riding. I'm a every year rider, I never add a car and I think the bike I have now is my 15/16 one... I've lost the count. I've made some trips in my short live and hope to do much more in the remaining 102 years of live ehehehe...first big trip was a solo in 2009 on a DL1000 - Portugal/Spain/Andorra/France/Italy(short incursion)/Switzerland and back, around 5000km...I like to wake up in the morning and ride from Lisbon to Jabugo in Spain just for take the breakfast (600km trip) and my last adventure was last October when I made Lisbon-Barcelona-Genéve non stop in 36 hours on a Kawasaki 1500 Drifter to visit a brother that was needing for some support. I'm the founder of a Club that's call Viking Ravens. I just bought and I'm now on the process of bring her to live a 1988 Kawasaki GTR 1000 Concours aka "Old Langskip" that I hope will make many more km of life with me in the future. Well that's all for now and hope some day we can drink a  :chugbeer: somewhere in this world.

this photo was taken when I arrived home at 02.am on the day I bought her...
RESPECT is the word ....

Welcome Marco! Did you ride through Grenoble on the way to Genéve? I've spent some time there.

Welcome and congrats, Marco. You've already fulfilled your first duty as a registered member. A picture.

Welcome!  Looks pretty much just like my '87.

Welcome, Marco. Great looking bike. When you go back to Jabugo, have some ham and drink a Mahou to our health. Ride safe.
