Hello from North Yorks
« on: March 06, 2018, 14:29:27 »
Hello All. Picked up a 55 2006 DL1000 K6 from North Wales last Monday, and rode back to Malton in N Yorks just before the snow started! Aftermarket heated grips worked a treat, but it was still the coldest 2.5 hours of my life!

Got back into bikes after a 20 year break early last year. Did the 'apprenticeship' on a F650GS but feel ready to upgrade (to at least match Brother's predictable choice of a 1200GS!)

Bike is black, very tidy for the year, 22k miles. Has TRE but intend to try it with and without as we ride quite often on single track, slow speed roads with unpredictable surfaces!

Great club/forum - happy to be a member!

Hello MJ,  :welcome2:
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.
