The British are coming

And this englishman is very impressed with the forum. I Joined 1500hrs(GMT) today, posted 2 threads and by 16.30, have had replys to both of them,
I should have had a BM years ago, the K1200RS is by far the best machine Ive had to date. I look forward to being a member.

I wouldn't be too impressed. Usually when we detect someone lurking
we send in the intelligent members. Now that we have ya, you'll have
to make do with the rest of us.

welcome aboard.

Hi Peter; q few of here heer in Old Blighty
Yes this is a great forum with good humoured knowledgeable riders who are willing to share their knowledge on all things bikes

Welcome; you made a sound choice in your bike. Only yesterday I was riding with a police examiner and he said that he now understood why these bikes received such good reviews; I agree totally !

Not convinced by the fuelling yet but lets see how that settles down, I was also surprised at the high frequency vibes at the 85-90mph area..
