« on: May 24, 2019, 06:36:46 AM »
Have just purchased a new bike replacing F800GT and moving across from F800 Riders Forum.
This is my 7th & last bike mostly had cruisers Vstars, Vulcans Harleys. Now nudging the wrong side to 70 from 60, I am looking fwd to riding the new unit, running in at present and enjoying the experience so far. Have set the bike up for touring, handlebar riser, screen & comfort seat. I don't think I will be disappointed. Looking fwd to reading posts & opinions.
Down at the bottom of the world, OZ, coming into our winter although some would laugh at that. Know a bit about my country anyone wishing to visit and looking for places to ride, visit or eat let me know more than happy to point you in the right direction.

Make Life A Ride

Regards

Wiffa
