Hello all, I'm happy to be here thanks for letting me in lol.
I live in South Wales Cardiff and ride a 2008 DL650A mostly in the lanes anywhere from the Brecon Beacons to Aberystwyth, that's about as far as I can get to and from in a day. I'm from NewZealand, been here since 2014 (Welsh wife), I bought my DL650 2015 and also have a DL650 back in NZ. I love exploring the lanes and normally ride during midweek. I've been riding more or less continuously since I was 14 and now I'm 50 ish.

I started reading your post with a Welsh accent, then I saw you were from NZ. I can't do NZ tainted with Cardiff  :)

That's my Kiwi accent done with. :)
To be happy, I don't need private helicopters,a Florida house or a yacht. I'm fine with my motorcycle,a trip to a forest in Bavaria and some lunch money.

 :welcome: You list a DL650A L8 in your profile, is this your current model ride or the one back in NZ?
