    Hello from the UK

    Hi all, have browsed here for many years having moved from an R1200RT to a R1200R before coming a C650GT beta-tester. Always an excellent source for technical help and seems to be the principal home for English-speaking BMW Urban Mobility owners so looking forward to exchanging some highs and lows.

    Thanks Guys - home is an island in the river Thames about 20 miles southwest of central London - great in the summer but it means leaving the bike on the mainland and a 5 minute walk every time I go out/come back..an amphibious K1600 would be ideal...

    Welcome Tone!

    Quite a few expat 'Brits' scattered around the MOA....meself included. I'm originally from London and have plenty of connection to your area.

    Taggs or Eel Pie area?

    Cheers, Chris

    Hi Chris, bit further upstream at Shepperton, not far from The Who's old sound stage at Shepperton Studios so I guess a scooter feels vaguely appropriate!

    Used to know that area too. So much has changed over the years that the 'old memories' don't work so well anymore.

    Scooters eh? We are the mods!

    All the best, Chris
