How this journey started

A couple of years ago I decided I wanted to go back in time to my earliest days of cycling .
Iím my case that was late 1960ís up to 1972.
I owned too many motorcycles to list here starting with small Hondaís all the way up to
a Norton Commando.
My favorite bikes of the bunch were the Yamaha
DT 250, 360 and a 400 enduro.
These bikes were light, fast and fun.
All day cruising the beach and right back out at night fun.
I decided I wanted to buy a bike that had been
Fully restored like new. The search was years long and I was growing tired of chase.
Iím also a BMW car enthusiast owning a 1972
Bmw 2002 . This is what exposed me to
The G320r .
I love this bike and it is a time machine
Light, fast and fun just like back in 1971

I think most riders after a while goes back to the small nimble bikes instead of sticking with high powered sports bikes.
Glad to have more experienced rider here!

Garage
Iím driving beamers since 1980.
My last one was a F800ST and from one second to another, I sold this bike.
I was not interested in riding motorcycles anymore ......
Then, for my wife, I bought a 125 motor scooter (Honda pcx 125) but she did not liked it.
I started to use the scooter and liked the weight and the way it handled.
After a while I started to miss some extra power and started to look for a heavier bike / scooter.
Being a bmw rider I looked for the new 310 and waited al these extra months (year).
Now iím very happy with the G310R and the weight is perfect and the power more then enough.
