Hi all, Ian from Telford, UK here. I have just bought a nearly new white G310R. I part ex'd a Yamaha SRX-4 grey import. The Yam had more power but the riding position was getting to me as, at 66, my body isn't quite as supple as it used to be. I too had preconceptions of being underpowered etc etc. I went for a 2 and half hour test ride last week and to be quite honest I really didn't want to give it back. Much discussion with a very friendly and approachable dealer in Wolverhampton has resulted in my first BMW bike ever in over 50 years of riding. It arrives tomorrow May 30th...I can't wait. I love the style, comfort, paintwork and manoeuvrability. As many of us older riders seem to say.....never mind the speed, just enjoy the ride.
