Dave (& Val) here from Plymouth, Devon...

Have a BMWR1200ADV Tripple Black (17) only 7k miles on it so far - picked it up second hand with 5600 miles in April but I'm just back on a bike after a four year break due to illness - now with new hips I'm back on it..

My last bike was the R1150GS sold it with 130,000 miles on it when I could not ride anymore due to the pain. Before that was the R850GS sold with 85000 miles showing, also had a 650 Fundro just for fun - before live with BMW was the normal Honda's from my first SS50, 185, 200,250,400 back in the 70/80s to 50cc step through run arounds.

Normally two up that is where Val comes in - used to be a every day rider but now have a Smart Car for the bad days (that is bad as in too painful to ride).

Welcome on board Dave. With so many miles under your belt, I'm sure you'll have many great stories to tell. Looking forward to hearing a few old ones and many more new ones. Ride safe.
