hello from Holland

After a single (G310R), a twin (F700GS), a boxer (R1200RS) and an in-line four (K1300GT) I finally got my dream bike last week, a 2014 plate K1600 GT!

Last weekend I picked up my blue GT and started to use it already now to commute to work, the big screen and heated grips and seat keep me quite comfortable.
The longer holiday tours will come in 2020, and I'm already looking forward to that.

I only started riding 3 years ago but already did around 50k miles around Europe, touring through the mountains of France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and Austria and cruising on the hills and flats of middle and northern Europe. Also did a couple of IBA tours (2 SS, 1 BBS and 2 BBG) on the RS and the GT and think more will follow on the bigger GT next year.

It wasn't exactly in that sequence, but two weeks ago I had the 1300 and 1200 both in my garage, but decided that 4+2=6 was also the best outcome for me
