Hi, from a expat newbie in The Netherlands
« on: December 22, 2013, 07:37:27 pm »
Hi folks,

Few facts of (my) life; 56 years, got my driving licence in 1976 (care of Her Majesty's Forces), had a Norton, then a BMW, didn't riding for almost 25 years and got another BMW a few months ago.
Joined the club to find out about the Trophy. Read so many good reviews that I'm thinking over buying one in the UK & importing it to The Netherlands. So if anyone knows anything :440: then I would love to hear about it.
Great to see so many nationalities on the forum.

Merry Christmas all.

Hello Adam and  :400: to the forum.

When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.
