New Member Cumbria, UK
« on: August 19, 2023, 04:51:57 AM »
Hello, I am just introducing myself as a new member and a new owner of a 1987 BMW R65.  I have been a motorcyclist for over 35years and owned countless machines and still have more than I should!  Of the BMW variety I have had a R100RT Classic, K100, R1200GS and still have a R1250RT for touring with my wife on.  I was wanting to add an air head again so I sourced a nice simple R65 Mono as they get decent reviews and are a nice light bike for when I start to to down size to more manageable machines in size and weight.

I have always s joined the owners forums as I find them a source of valuable information for maintaining and modifying my bikes so I look forwards to engaging with you all.
