    Thumbs up New owner & member in Dublin, Ireland

    Hi folks.

    I am new to adventure bikes, having today bought myself a 2021 GS Adventure TE in Triple Black. I should have it on the road next week some time.

    I've mainly had sports bikes up til now.

    I'm a huge fan of the Gixers and have a K6 I don't think I'll ever part with.

    I sold an RC8 recently. Loved looking at it but couldn't enjoy driving it and I always chose the K6 over it for spins.

    I'm 40 now and wanted something more upright for regular use.

    I took the opportunity to go all out with the GS and I don't think I'll regret it.

    I drove a brand new one in 2019 over in the States for a few days from Eagle Rider and loved it.

    Looking forward to getting it.

    Cheers.

    Mark

    Welcome aboard......nice to see someone carefully dipping there toes in the GS pond before fully committing

    All joking aside, you've got yourself a fantastic machine and I doubt it will disappoint you.

    Welcome to the fold Mark!

    Have a triple black as well - mine's a 2016 model so not quite as tasty as your recent purchase!

    Hopefully catch you on the road at some stage....

    Cheers,
    Seán.

    I'm just delighted there is a new Irish member on here. I was the newest for ages, and frankly, I was getting ticked off having to buy the fish and chips for everyone at every outing. I was going to propose we scrap that rule, but now I'm looking forward to the next fish dash :-)
