Hi from this side the pond.
« on: April 05, 2017, 09:33:43 am »
Hi guys.

A little CV on myself, I've been biking since I was 15....I hit 70 this year.  British bikes to begin with then decided to give a Susy 650 a go,  as we like touring I then got hold of a GTR.

I've had 4 GTR 1000's over the years, even work as a courier for 7 years on them. I then changed over to the 1100 Pans, had 3 of those....then traded up to a ST 1300 2 years back.

I joined the UK GTR forum about 3 weeks back and through a member found a 2011 GTR 1400 in Dark Green, she is now our pride & joy.

I found this forum by a thread on the Uk one ....so here I am.. ;)
