1st



Hello everybody

my name is Markus and I'm living in Cologne, Germany. Starting my biker career in the smart age of 44 after several failed attempts - due to short money in the age of 18 and then lack of time - I now proudly own a 2007 Versys, purchased 5 hours after my driving test mid of May this year.

Since then I've ridden some 5.000 mi, most of it in the uplands of the nearby Eifel where the world famous race track Nuerburgring is located. Despite being on the other side of the ocean, I've taken along a lot of tips and clues out of your forum. So it's a pleasure for me to now become part of it.

Welcome Markus, 44 is a great age but my wife does remind me to act my age at times but on the bike I do forget that Im 44.

Welcome



I started riding again last year at 56 after a 30 year break from riding. Thanks for sharing with us.
