Talking New to the forum.

Hi everybody. My name is Philip and am from Cape Town, South Africa. I have a 2007 K1200GT and just loving it. We have some of the best roads and passes for a rider around the Cape Town and Western Cape area. Hope to learn a lot from all you guys and girls on the forum.

Welcome, Philip.

My wife and I got to visit Cape Town a few years ago. There's some beautiful country out that way, but unfortunately, we didn't have access to a bike . . .

'13 Dark Graphite Metallic K16GTLD, 24K miles and counting...
'09 Magnesium Beige Metallic K13GT, 60K miles miles and counting...
'02 Mauve Metallic K12LTC, 106K miles and sold
BMWLT#145, IBA# 366, MOA# 111996, SCMA# 24032

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

The other thing we have in common is a decent Rugby team.

Welcome and if you are ever down our way just let me know and we can tee up a run around our little country we call paradise .

Cheers,

Welcome

Welcome from Alaska, this is the best k bike forum. There is a lot of great info that can save you a lot of headaches, it certainly has for me. Armed with the OEM manual which I have loaded on my laptop and this forum you can tackle a lot. Another useful tool is the GS-911 code reader. Enjoy the ride!
