Can’t believe it’s well over a year since I last posted on my own ‘biking blog….
So much has happened…….the Harley experiment was somewhat shortlived…..only 1500 miles ridden before being laid up for the winter (that’s LAST winter!).
Work & personal commitments meant zero miles this year & a return to my beloved BMW means the ‘Glide has gone.
And by no means least, the loss of over six stones in weight means that none of my ‘biking gear fits anymore….going on eBay any day now….
Looking forward to 2013…..a new BMW in March, new gear, new helmet & several overseas trips planned….Norway, Germany, Italy & Spain….more of which another day….
My 29 year love affair with BMW motorcycles is over, certainly for the foreseeable future.
Throughout three decades I have owned no fewer than 20 different BMW ‘bikes and have, in the main, enjoyed a thoroughly positive and enjoyable association with these fabulous German motorcycles.
But the time has now come for me to change & submit to a long held desire to own a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
I have sold my BMW R1200RT-SE and will shortly acquire this beautiful machine:
Harley-Davidson CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide 2011 (FLHTCUSE6)
The summer 2011 edition of the excellent BMW Motorcycle Magazine has just arrived….another fabulous read!
