Greetings from the UK

Not my first BMW , but far the most impressive machine I have owned. After a 25 year break and the last 18 months back on a K1200RS and various training, I bought this last weekend for a significant birthday.
Just getting used to it now it is lovely to ride and very easy actually, after the RS, I am now reading all the posts on center stands, exhaust and crash bobbins.

Hope to do so bigger trips this year on this bike , very carefully !

Welcome to the madhouse David.

I did quite the same, i-e a break in motorcycle riding for many years, I enjoy it more and more now. (if that freaking snow could finally disappear, first ride of the year yesterday for a few miles only )
