Talking New member from Norway :D

New member from Norway here


I just bought a BMW G310R in black (Havent taken delivery on it yet).

Normally i drive a Yamaha R6 wich is a combined street and trackbike, but i wanted something more nimble so i bought a g310r.

I have tested a 2018 model and i felt this was a very good bike for the inner city.

I got the bike for 5073 euros and that included registration, first service and 800 euros worth of driving equipment. Its a very good deal.


Been doing some reading on this forum and you sounds like a good gang so i decided to join.

Thank you..

Its allready in a store in Oslo, but i decided it would be better to pick it up during the spring some time.
Its currently 700 million below zero here now, so its kind of hard to drive anyway.
I dont work on shore so i will pick it up on my way home from work in May or something.
Our seasons dont last that many months so im very excited to see how much i actually can use it.


I live in a town called Trondheim now, and i only have parking space for motorcycle due to the packed buildings in the area. My R6 is not very suited for this as i have to plow around in first gear, looking stupid in my 1pc going 3mph trough traffic.


in 2019 i was planning to buy a "new" g310r that where for sale in the town. I took it for a spin, and god did i feel good... I see a lot of people complain about brakes and suspension, but in all honesty - what do one actually need?
Ive had 600 for a long time, and i know how stupid these rockets are for the street. Ive had some problems.... adjusting the speed on the highway and when trying the g310r i felt a relief. The bike goes faster than the traffic, it accelerate ok and the light weight makes up for the single discs at the front tire.


Cheap maintainance, 5 year warenty, 30ish hp and agile as a stripper!
I might lose some friends by owning it, but hopefully I can get some new ones here on the forum

Welcome! When will your riding season start? I'm planning to ferry to Helsinki and ride through Finland, Sweden, and Norway once the roads are salt-free. Maybe we can meet up.

The front suspension is a bit soft. I'm considering putting thicker oil in the forks to keep them from compressing so quickly. Other than that, I think it's fine.
