    Checking Out

    Hello All,

    In the short period of time that I've owned my 2010 R1200 GS, I've learned a heck of a lot from this forum.
    However, I'm now checking out. (There doesn't appear to be a "Leaving" sub-forum.)
    You may ask, "Why am I leaving the BMW GS fold?"
    Well, I find the GeländeStraße just too big, too tall, and too heavy for my ageing body.
    I have, therefore, part-exchanged it for a new Triumph Tiger 800 XRT.
    I find the Tiger 800 far easier to manoeuvre, and far nimbler to ride.
    So cheerio, and thanks for all the fish.

    There’s actually no formal requirement for anyone to post that they are leaving. Go forth and enjoy your new bike. You can feel free to stay around here too. It’s not necessary to have a GS. I have a RT. But you can stay here and boast about the superior build quality of your Tryumph. JJH

    Try the Triumph 800 section before you decide to go.

    It’s called humour - so many on here have reached a dullness of mind whereby they no longer recognise it.

    Perhaps he's still making his mind up, or buggered off to the land of make believe.....
