Hey folks
My name is Grant, I live on the Mornington Peninsula, Melbourne Australia
Iíve just bought a 2015 K1300R, pick it up on Friday!
Looking to connect with similar owners and learn more about this bike.
Previously Iíve owned several Suzuki Katanas mostly the pop up headlight 750, a couple of 1100s.
Iím active in that community, hence my looking around at the BMW owners.
By day I work as an Automatic Door Technician, supermarkets, banks , hospitals etc..keeps me busy.
Drop me a line

Cheers

I’m pretty sure I’ve got a well worn path, many years on Suzuki Katanas ��
