Aussie newbie. K1200GT SE 2006

Well, riding on road since 1978, on two wheels since 1967. Never not had a bike, plenty years, including now, that I have not had a car. Currently own 2013 Thunderbird Storm, 96 Yamaha Diversion S 900, 2006 K1200GT SE, GTR1400 basket case. Had the Beemer one week. In love! Just added. Delkevic Pipe today. Haven't ridden with it yet, real life intervened.

Look forward to participating.

Re: Aussie newbie. K1200GT SE 2006

Hey, hey ... g'day from the Western Paddock!

Burpengary ... I love that name. My younger sister lives there. You might have seen her around - she pulls a trailer with some awfully stunning pets on the side.

Welcome to i-BMW and congrats on the new purchase. How about a pic or several?
