Hi from Belgium

Hi to you all!

My name is Maarten, I'm 25y old and living in Belgium! Yeah you know, that little country somewhere in Europe famous for it's chocolate, waffles, diamonds and nowadays for it's terrorists?

Anyway, I'm completely new in the motorcycle world as I never have driven a motorcycle before... Until yesterday! Yesterday I received a introduction class organized by the BMW garage where I bought my BMW G310R.

I ordered my BMW G310R as a starter. In August I'll have my motorcycle classes and hopefully at the end of the month my driving license so I can start to gain some experience on the road.

The colour: Pearl White Metallic
The option list:
- LED indicators
- Buddyseat (the high one)
- Outside protection cover
- Socket
- Heated handles (as of the moment they are going to be available)

I'll use the motorcycle to go to work when the weather is fine and some leisure trips. Should not be more than 25km per day.

Cheers.

Fellow new rider, welcome to the forum!

Never been to Belgium, but there must be plenty of scenic roads to ride through on your off days, and food trips, and...Oh god I want to visit and try some Speculoos.

But anywho, congrats on getting a g310r. You can ride before getting your license in Belgium?

Haha, Belgium is worth to visit (if you know the nice cities and places)!
No, you can't drive on the road before getting your license. It was on a private ground, class given by a police officer

So if you were to speed on the private course, does that mean you can get a speeding ticket before you even have your license?
