Hi, First of all, I apologize for my not really good english, here in Quebec (Canada), the main language is french. My name is Vincent, proud owner of a BMW R1200GS since last year. Motorcyclist since too long (got my license 33 years ago)... I took a 10 years motorcycle break but now I'm back on the saddle. My BMW is equipped mostly for off-road travel (TKC80 tire, crash bars, headlight guard) but, of course, also rides a lot of paved roads.
