Hi from Cape Town

Good afternoon everyone!


Hailing from Cape Town, South Africa.



I'm 26 y.o. First time rider - first bike purchase.


Very good & informative forum - been doing a lot of research here before making the big decision.


I've just ordered a new white G310 GS - waiting time is around a month which I don't mind.


Looking forward to read all about your experiences!

Perfect choice for a beginner bike yet many of us lifelong riders chose the GS. Congrats & welcome to the forum young man!

Hi @maximusZA_2018 , congrats. You have some nice local accessory manufacturers that are quite a bit cheaper than the German ones. Crashbars: https://rumbux.com/product-category/...w-g310gs-2017/ Misc: https://www.motorradical.co.za/collections/bmw-g310gs

Welcome to the forum MaximusZA_2018 and best regards from Joburg,
I'm also a first time rider - a tad older thought but the 310GS was the best investment ever. I am sure you will enjoy the bike very much.
I am almost every day on the bike, during the week I commute to work, weekends I go for a spin in the area.


Enjoy and stay safe!

Enjoy! There's a pretty good SA motorcycling channel on youtube called "The Bike Show". Their review of the 310GS helped convince me to buy one

Haha yes! Watched that episode and the one where it vs the F800 and F1200! It did help convince me too.
