Hi all, I live in Perth Western Australia.
I am 72 years old (yes and still riding),and also new to this BMW site.
Been riding a K1300S with 90'000Km on the clock,for over 3 years now.
Great bike with awesome power except, for the odd stalling issue.
Hired a 1200GS and toured all over Tasmania in Feb-2018.
Fantastic motorbike roads and a bike heaven.

Ben, I like your style. Welcome to the site. Take pictures when you ride and post them up. We’re suckers for pictures.

Hi Ben,

If we ever have another Oz iBMW Rally, your presence would bring down the average age
