Hi there. Started last winter with my Himalyan after the 60th-birthday-journey from Germany to Cape Town on my??? Guess... of course, a BMW 1200 ADV. Great motorcycle, fantastic tour - but I figured out that I do not need 120 hp and close to 300kg. So while planning the next trip I was looking for a more conveniend bike and stepped on the Himalayan. One long weekend of hard testing with all the luggage and my girlfriend: thats it, the best one world, around the world bike for me. Next week 15.000km service and looking forward for more.
