Hey! I have been riding motorcycles since my XR80 in the mid-80s. Got my Ls in the the 90s. Bought a man-scooter in 2004. Finally sold it after 112,000Km and when I bought an old man BMW GS1200. Whoa! What a beauty. In immaculate condition for a 2005 model. And have since put on 15,000Km in 12 months. Cheers!
