Lets see if this works.... sharing photos from Google....

The things is, you see, after many many years of loyal service, my two BMW's (my first, the 1050RT, and the other my 1200GS) have left me.
They are on their way to The Netherlands, because that's where they are registered still...... to be sold.

Nina and I now settled in Italy and will be looking to buy an Italian registered bike in the next few months. It just turned out to be too cumbersome to re-register the bikes and we figured that with a little pocket money now (after selling our house) we might as well get us a newer bike here. The RT was 2004 and the GS 2006.

So, once we have wheels again, you may expect new ride tales coming up wave

Mmmm. Ride tales from Italy supported with your professional photographic skills.

They should be epic and stunning!


Cary, Gleno, Rodger, Paul,
Godspeed, my brothers.
We will never forget you.

Do you have a MotoReflective Reflective Kit (Link) for the rear of your BMW?

Hi Fernando ! LOL.... I'll do my best.... but first need to (re)figure out how to embed my photos here. I am no longer active on Smugmug, and Google seems to have a mind of its own grin grin

In my experience, if the photo URL doesn't end in the file extension (like .jpg or .gif), the BBS software here will not display it. You have to figure out how to get a URL out of your photo site that ends with the file extension.
