Time to say goodbye!

After five great years here in the US its time to say goodbye and return to my adopted country, Germany.
For the first time on 6 years I am 675less.... I have owned 3 Daytona's and a Street Triple R in those years and eveyone has brough imense pleasure and fun. It was a sad day as my track bike was loaded up on to the new owners trailer.
I shall probably still be around the forum as that is the wonder of the world wide net, it doesn't matter where you are in the world you can still be conected!
Thanks to all the folks I have met and ridden with its been an honour and pleasure. .
New and exciting things await, the S1000rr on the tracks of Europe the Tiger 800 on the Black Forest and Alpine Roads and the old Tiger 750 at the local Cafe Racer meet.
If any of you find your way to the South West corner of Germany drop me a PM and we can RIDE

Take care and keep the rubber side down!!

Tiger 800 (Do it all)
1973 Tiger 750 (restored)
BMW S1000rr (the animal)

It's a sad day indeed when you sell your Triumph as I have done a few times now, but be happy!

If you are getting the BMW S1000RR you will LOVE it... Seriously, it's a freaking menace (in the best possible way); a menace to your opposition on the track, a menace to your sanity when it hits 11,000 rpm on its way to 14,000 rpm, a menace to your driving license if you aren't paying attention.. (really.. the way it gets to 150 mph is mind-boggling).

I'm lucky that my Wife lets me ride her 675R on occasion and I get to ride my BMW S1000RR every day to work as well as on the track, so I don't miss my 675 as much as I would if I couldn't get my fix every so often.

Cheers mate and let us know how you like the S1000rr

Hate to see you go, but all you gotta do is get settled in, buy a new Daytona,and post pictures of it. Hell we have friends all over the world. That's the way we roll.
