My good friend lives near Mullhouse, France. Last Year We had a chance to do a small ride through the French and German countryside. I rode his old ride a 1993 BMW K-75 while he rode his newer ride a Ducati 900.
After that I was smitten. I came home and purchased my first bike in 24 Years. Now I have 2. I was hoping to make it back for more riding this year, but finances have thwarted me thus far.
