Rode my BMW 310R from the UK across Europe.

UK > Bilbao > Barcelona > Montpellier > Monaco > Turin > Geneva > Paris > UK

I got the bike last year on a 18 plate, I’ve done 15,000 miles since then including this journey. I’ve had no issues with the bike, only serviced once after 350 miles.

Modifications:
- Tail Tidy
- Aftermarket indicators
- Clear plastic chain guard
- Decals removed (Getting them sprayed black)
- Stock mirrors removed (Replaced with handle bar mirrors)
- Exhaust heat guard removed

Wow Lewis, hats off to you, that's a real trip. Did you stay off highways, or no? Love the Alps (I assume) photo. Great that the bike was so reliable all this time.

I spent quite a bit of time on the motorway, diverting off when I want to explore or take the back roads. I’d say 1/3 of my journey was on motorway. It was quite exhausting!

I do have more photos but can’t seem to upload more than 2, yes it is the alps!
