Hi everyone

After riding some old mopeds at the age of 16, I got my motorcycle license 2 years later and bought my first bike.
3 moths later I crashed and sold it, but the next bike was soon to come. My 1999 varadero served me well for a couple of years on the daily commute and some trips tro France, Germany and Switserland.
On the other hand it had given me quite a lot of headaches breaking down quite a lot and the full consumption was horrible.
Obviously the africa twin cought my attention as soon as it came out, but I didn't plan on investing in a new bike any time soon.
The latest brakedown convinced us to start testing some bikes.
The triumph tigers, gs and even a multistrada where tested, but the africa twin felt to suit our needs best.
The deal was done and been riding our grey manual at for a few weeks now.
Did about 300 km of solo commuting and a 1500km trip to Luxembourg and Germany with my girlfriend on the back.
Love the bike and hope to have a lot of trouble free years with it.
Thanks in advance for future advice I'm hoping to find here.
