New member introduction.
on: February 23, 2020, 01:20:30 AM
Hi! Ive just ordered a 900R after 15 years of various GSs.... had BMs since 82 (!!!!) starting with a R80ST (anyone remember those....?) followed  by one of the last R100CSs; then various K models until 95 when I turned back to the boxers with the R850 and then the R1100S before my GS phase. A health problem last year seemed to end my motorcycling days so I sold my GS..... Unexpected recovery prompted me to return to biking and try something different: tried Ducati, Triumph, KTM...... all had their good points but the 900R had the right synergy for me!!! So sometime in March I take delivery......

Apart from being a biker, music is the other important thing in my life; both listening and performing from which I make my living. Looking forward to participating on this forum!

Hey Welcome!

Glad to have experienced riders here with interest in modern bikes. 
And of course, anytime I read about something like this, makes me feel good about ordering a BMW this time.
I actually left a German Forum because it was multi sectioned with the older F800. Many older Forum members having an F800 was constantly talking
BS about the new F900. Too much for me.

Anyway, I am pleased you had the opportunity to regain your ability to ride bikes again!
