My current bike is a BMW R1200R. I had a couple of trials bikes (BSA Bantam and Dalesman) in my teenage years but went onto four wheels when I was 17 and never rode on the road on two wheels. Around twelve years ago I decided that I should get riding again, took my bike test and was given a Kawasaki GPZ500s to cut my teeth. This gave me a good start on the roads and I bought my BMW around eight years ago. I ride throughout the year and regularly ride with Mike Fourie with Ilkley U3a. For the last six years a group of four friends have travelled to Europe, usually to watch a MotoGP event and enjoy some great rides. I’m 63, retired and looking forward to improving my skills and fixing any bad habits.
