Hey Alex - lekka man, welcome back. Great bike! What year GSA?

Have you had any training recently to get familiar with the bike?
BMW Motorrad has a comprehensive range of on & off road training at Zwartkops... *VERY* worthwhile.

For me, spending R10k in attending multiple training courses is waaaaay cheaper than replacing plastics/ jacket/ helmet etc. from a silly off that could have been prevented.

Welcome to the forum and enjoy your renewed found freedom. Keep the rubber side down and consider joining as a member, nice benefits to it. And take to heart what crash said, training is important, you can never get enough, and always fun.
