Thanks for the join. Any other k1600 riders from Cornwall? After a long as your arm list of bikes I now have the ultimate (to me) tourer gt sport. After many exhausting v twins the new bike is a joy to ride. Roll on summer camping and touring!
Hello vj,
I am from East Cornwall and I ride with two other K16s,we ride somewhere most weeks and we go down to Falmouth quite regular.

I live South East Cornwall,Trematon. I go on a few rides and meets with the BMW owners club but would be keen to meet up with fellow k owners. Weathers looking a bit better next week ( mid week) if you would like to meet for a ride?
Kind regards Vince

Hi and welcome.

I used to live in Helston, but that was a few years ago now. Unfortunately it’s a bit far to ride over but I’d love to ride some of those country backroads I remember :)

Hi Melv
Other pic is Stithians reservoir. I’ve lived Trematon for 12yrs so may know your friends? Just going into retirement myself so free to go for a ride midweek. Text me if you like 07970423761.
I’m not a religious member of the bmw club in fact I’m still a member of the Ducati club too. I pick and choose a bit going on a few rallies each year. I like the camping & touring.Always nice to meet with new friends with similar interests.
which K do you and your friends have?
Kind regards

Vince did your bike need the transmission recall?
Oh yes I recognise Cargreen down bY the river Tamar. Nice. My first bike was a FS1E! Always had a bike and many Ducati's. My bike has not had the recall yet but it's imminent! Looks a great ride to the south of France for you. I am off to Brittany in April on my bike and then the Loire in our motorhome in June.
