Hello from Essex UK

I'm a 67 year old veteran biker with a new gsxs f1000 to keep me young. Previous bikes include matchless g2 250, bsa lightning, Honda cx500, Kawasaki gt 550, Yamaha xs1100, triumph sprint, Honda cbf 1000 and now the gixus. I only ride for pleasure and tour in Europe mainly to the French Alps

Welcome Aboard
The F is pretty good for touring, just the lack of hard luggage and water spraying up your back is my only gripe for long distance.

Pull my finger

Greetings from a just-turned 70 year old living in NZ . My route was Suzuki 50, Triumph 3TA, Tiger 100, Honda GB 400, BMW K100RS, Honda Blackbird, Street Triple and some other non-road machinery. Trying to age disgracefully with the Gixxer!
