Beginning the dream!

Post by Letsleap » Fri Aug 10, 2018 9:42 pm

Hi ABR’s! A bit of personal stuff:
Exactly 4yrs ago last month, at 64, I sat on a bike for the first time to chase the CBT. DAS passed a few months later. First right-
off, and superman impression, 11 months after that when a learner driver completely crossed the road in Betwys y Coed and hit me head on. 6 months later, replacement BMW F800GT bought, and subsequently passed IAM.
Became a Blood Bike Wales Rider in November 2016 and took ownership of a new R1200GS Sept 2017.
Av mileage since test, 13-14k pa including BBW work.
Dream? A long distance tour, solo or with new friends, loads of laughs, stories and fun!
So, let the dream begin!
(But where to start?) 😂😉

The west Wales rally in September good laughs rides and it's a good charity event the Wales blood bikes attend as well
