Hey

#1 Post by Pyro142 » Mon Nov 26, 2018 1:38 am

Hey,

So this is my introduction post. I found this forum whilest looking at bikes to go for but everyome seems pretty friendly so I thought I could get some advice from here.. I'm fairly new to motorcycling (and driving in general) and will be taking my CBT fairly soon.

I'm mainly into naked and super sport bikes and I like to watch Ryan F9 on Youtube

2018 BMW R nineT
โ€œItโ€™s shit. And as soon as I get home Iโ€™m going to buy one.โ€
That was a fellow journalistโ€™s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. Itโ€™s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.

There was a fair bit of decent rallying around. Jolly good show.
