Newbie

Got myself a K1200RS last month, 02 plate with only 790 miles on clock.
Its brill , and now the weather is sunny I'll get some more miles on it.
Look forward to meeting up with some other BM riders in the near future

How does someone with a 4-5 year old bike as good as an RS only do 790 miles in that time?

Nope; just 1 hour down the road, we have the Channel Tunnel and then we're in France where we have roads that are simply wonderful. So no, we do do our miles in UK, but not ONLY in UK
