    I recently sold my F700GS as I found it a bit dull. Then decided to upgrade my ST for a GT. I found that I got as many issues with dealers for the GT as I had with private buyers for the baby GS. Things such as not saying a bike didn't have any service history / manuals and a bike that was advertised as 8000 miles, which then had had its last service at 12,400 miles. Having wasted my time, I have then found a Valencia orange GT with full luggage from a main BMW dealer. Just waiting for it to be serviced by them and delivered next week. A simple and honest transaction with them and I look forward to having my GT as my do everything bike.

    Nice place New Quay, stayed in one of the caravan parks above the town (the one with the steps down to the beach).

    Didn't realise that you were a fully paid up member of the WRU as well. Going to have to let Garry at Sycamore's know so that we can arrange some choir practice.

    Hwyl!
    Forty Foot eh .... I spent 17 years commuting up and down that road.
    About once a year, up until average speed cameras were fitted, a car ended up in the water..
    Not all ocupants got out of the cars ...... very sad.

    My GT came from Sycamores or Balderstones as was.
    They are having a demo ride day this coming Saturday..... I'll be there......
