long time lurker says hi

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by Strals, Dec 28, 2015.

  1. Hi

    Long time lurker decided it was about time for me to say hi and introduce myself.

    Been riding for about 2 years, previous to this I did have my Ls in my early twenties. From memory (it was a little while ago) your Ls expired after 3 months so I just kept reapplying for my Ls instead of going for my Ps, did this for a couple of years then eventually realised it would help if i actually had a bike! Couldn't afford both a car and bike so gave up on getting my bike license.

    Recently gave myself a 50th b'day present and spent some time travelling with an old school mate around Laos on trail bikes, loved every minute of it. Beer Lao .......yum.

    Current bike is a 2009 BMW f800st.

    Hopefully will meet some of you in the new year.
