Hi all, names Kirk, 37 and finally sick of the plastic rockets. After getting T-Boned off my last bike 3 weeks ago i decided to pop into Williams BMW in manchester and think i have left agreeing to buy a 1200gs.
My mates are all taking the p!!! out of me but to be honest, i dont care, wife is fine about it, kids are too young to ask so hey why not.
it has taken me a few years to come round to the idea of owning one, specially as i deal with BMW riders on a daily basis at Gerickes and i found myself labelling the majority of them. But No more, as i have crosed over to the dark side and have to say after the test ride im still sat here grinning like a ten year old. Now i know what all the fuss was about.
So hope to get to know some of you, look forward to some ride out's. will post when i finally get the bike, should be no more than ten days !!!!!!
cheers all
Kirk

Welcome to the madhouse. Which Gerickes do you work at, and how did you label us? We're not all pipes and slippers you know, despite many of us being in middle age.
