Hej from Sweden

Hi, my name is Alin (but soon you'll know why I'm called aLLin).

Three days ago I saw a selling announcement for a BMW 310 GS, and after consuming most of the content I've found on YT and internet that night, next day I've contacted the seller and bam, bought it .

It is as a brand new bike, he had only 950 km on it, still under warranty, 1000 km check already done at BMW and a hefty extras: engine crashbars, handguards, GPS, BMW topbox. I was so happy and hooked on it that I could not resist the temptation to do a small ride even if the temperature outside was 0 degrees. It rained and snowed all day, but when I got it off the trailer, sun showed and we've been presented with a superb sunset.

I'm an inexperienced driver, with a growing fear of bikes due to wrong start > Suzuki DR650 > Yamaha DragStar 1100 > BMW K1200 LT. But this has to stop so that's why I chose a smaller bike, easier to learn and handle, that I hope to give me back the fun I had when I've started riding.

I'd be happy to share with you my first ride but forum rules won't let me post a link here. I'll try in the first comment

Välkommen till forumet. Landskapet ser bekant ut. Jag bodde 17 år i Växjö och 2 år i Skruv.
Ett tips från en gammal nybörjare. Om du inte är med redan, gå med i SMC och anmäl dig till avrostningskurs samt alla andra körträningar som SMC och klubbarna arrangerar. Det ger dig en helt annan säkerhet och njutning i körningen. Desutom riskerar du att få nya kompisar också
SMC Sveriges Motorcyklister hittar du på www.svmc.se .

Vad bra! Då är det bara att leta upp närmaste kurs, och sedan en lite längre bort, och kanske en till. Då har du även en anledning att köra någånstans
Brukar vara kul på kurserna och man lär sig mycket. Säger en fd. SMC instruktör.

Absolutely beautiful! I'm hoping to ride through Finland, Sweden, and Norway once the corona virus is done shutting down borders.

Alin Popescu,
Welcome to this forum, enjoy our threads.
What part (province) from your country are you from (I will add that to our thread “we’re are you from”)
