Welcome :wave: :wave: :wave:
2018 BMW R nineT
“It’s shit. And as soon as I get home I’m going to buy one.”
That was a fellow journalist’s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. It’s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.

Hi everyone thanks for the welcome, and my mum is a geordie but moved to sunderland due to the house being the right size and money so not really by choice, I shall get a pic in a minute,

Where is everyone from on here?

Welcome

Were you made to live in Sunderland or did you do it out of choice 😁
It was a case of the house having everything we need at the best price

Yea that's fair, that bit was more a general question to anyone around here, though I'm sure a rideout to Preston could work
