    Default Hi Think Bike

    First of all thank you for accepting my registration and I hope to find lots of info and advice from the members.
    I am an retired almost 69 years young biker and camping freek using my van as my permanent abode for now and therefor do not really have a fixed address.
    I have a 2008 BMW F650GS Twin which I really enjoy bar for a very irritating little issue which I will discuss a little later on.
    Thanks again,
    Wessel

    Welcome! I love the idea of having a van as your address. It sounds very cool. Enjoy the bike.

    Wonderful way to live.

    My van is a bit bigger and access to most campsites is not possible.

    The GS is the same width as a horses **** so it stand up in a horse partition. Scooter travels up front and fits through the interleaving door from the horse area into the living section. Rear ramp makes life very easy with loading.

    It is a working vehicle so the comfort is appreciated. Main sleeping area 2.1m x 2.4m (not easy to get bedding that size...)
