Hello all.

Newbie here from Aberdeenshire.
Just passed my test at 38 👴

Got myself a rough looking CBR 600 F3 but she runs sweet as a nut.

Any other folk up in Aberdeen?

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.

You do know it's pronounced "peh" down here don't you ? :lol:

I don't get out on the bike much in the winter, but if you're going to be down here in the better weather, let me know and we could maybe go for a wee hurl - some good roads between Dundee & Aberdeen ..... :D
