I thought that it might be about time for a proper introduction to this forum.
I'm 26 and live in Brussels, Belgium.
In about 2 or 3 weeks time I'll get my sparkling new 2012 F800R.
It's a silver F800R which looks absolutely amazing in my opinion, and it's a rare colour on a F8R...which is good.
The bike come with the following OEM options: heated grips, boardcomputer and led turn signals. Also ordered some other stuff from the Touratech catalogue; that list is a bit too long but I'll list it down in another topic when the F8R arrives.
Right, my bike history then.
Well, the F8R is my very first BMW and European motorbike to own.
My other bikes were, in order of owning:
- Honda CB500 (2000) restricted to 25KW => rode it for about 13 months and it broke down
- Yamaha XT660X (2005) => fun big mono => wrecked it unfortunatly
- Yamaha WR250X (2009) => small displacement supermoto, but a lot of fun 'cause it's so nimble and light in the twisties
... and now the F8R!
