Adventures (were) guaranteed

Shane Marriott

Shane Marriott (54)

Shane has a hunger for adventure that neither his wallet, free time nor other-half will support. Ever the optimist, after riding a Suzuki Bandit 600 for a few years and completing a Level 1 Advanced course at the "World of BMW" school in Wales he has put his money where is mouth is and invested in a brand new, fully spec'd BMW R1200GS Adventure ("30 Years GS" version). It is planned that this awesome machine will take him round Iceland, help him win the HUMM event and get safely to the beer festival in Germany! So; is Shane ready for the Adventure? I think we need to ask if the Adventure is ready for him?


Graham Styles a.k.a. Brainrotting is nearly a hero of ours.

Dinner in france

So we completed one of our challenges and had dinner in France. After our dessert of strawberry cake rolls, Dave had to repair the front left indicator on the Bandit after it was damaged in a slight horizontal mishap in Belgium. Not a bad…
