    Hi from Portugal

    Hello everyone.
    I'm here because a have a GSA coming in a few days and already trying to find some nice off-road routes, improve my English... and how to fix some issues that i may have
    Very nice forum, full of info. Will definitely learn a lot.

    I have a bullet, CBR 1100 XX, but need something to travel, hope the R 1250 GS A gona be a good choice.

    I'm not going to make something hardcore and its my first bike for this. I just loved the test drive I did a few moths ago with a 1250GS on an almost flat dirt road with some rocks and sand.

    Ha ha. No, I was talking about the coffee shop chain in the UK that seems to be the riding destination of choice for some on here, three ally boxes attached and 10000 lumens of twat lights ablaze....

    hahaha cultural diferences result in this kind of confusions

    1 week with the bike and speechless. I test-drive 2 (GS and GSA) and i was completely sold in the first one in under 20 seconds, it was an amazing experience.
    Living with one is on another level, i'm speechless. Last weekend had 1 hour in the morning to ride it ... make it 3 hours, I didn't notice the time pass. And no knee pain, my CBR XX is an specialist in reminding me that I'm getting old.

    Head for Silves, then point your bike at the hills, you can follow the fire trails for miles and miles. If lost pick up the pylons and they will take you back to Silves.

    Thanks for the advice !
    Didn't know that ride the fire trails was problematic in the south. I have some land in the north and I have to go see if it needs to be clean at least 3 or 4 times a year and never had problems.

    Problem is not riding the fire trails, the problem comes if your bike starts a fire, exhaust spark etc..............GNR-GIPS have good watching areas in the South
