Once saw an ad for a bike that was for sale,and the caption was...Get whatever the fuck you want doesn’t mean what I thought it did. What does that bike go for?

Gents... rule one on motorcycle purchase... never take the other half with you... and rule two, it was half the price you paid for it😁... providing it’s not a brand new bike!!!

Right...this proves that buying motorcycles from widows is bound to be a bargain!!!

This was the nicest pic a buddy took during my recent bike trip to Bolivia’s mountains.

I’m riding a 2014 BMW R1200R. Bought it second hand, in good shape. The front telelever suspension does wonders for one’s confidence in curves and under braking. Front dive is almost negligible...I know many disagree with telelever but it works for me.

Under my mesh KLIM jacket rides an unseen IHJ 79 blocking chilly mountain air and doing a wonderful job keeping me warm till later in the day when I can take it off .

Not sure how I missed such a nice comment @goosehd ; thanks buddy, it was a lovely trip and the R1200R is a wonderful bike for twisty mountain roads.

Maybe we ought to plan an IH motorbike trip in Bolivia now that we have good paved roads. After the Caribbean fishing trip, naturally. Wonder how many IH folk would be interested?

I would love to ride with a bunch of the guys who ride on  the Forum,starting with Haraki. Probably not logistically possible.

That would be very cool. Who knows, although logistically challenging, given Haraki’s (and Giles’?) interest in motorcycles maybe he’d be up for something like that. Wonder whether IH-JP have done group trips like that. If everybody wears IH gear, it may even be useful promo material?

I've seen videos on social media of groups of riders pulling out from ,what I think, is an IH store.
