Cool Hi there

I just joined Stromtroopers. I started riding on a 1989 HONDA XL600V Transalp, which I gave away (in 2000 after with 130.000km on the clock) for a 1990 HONDA XL600V Transalp.
Since 2002 it had to share the garage with a 2002 V-Strom DL1000, which I kept until 2016 (70.000km). I swapped it for a 2016 V-Strom DL650XT ABS.
Last year I noticed that I had not moved the Transalp for quite some time :-) , so I gave it away, to concentrate on my V-Strom.
Today, I have some 25.000km on the clock.
I live 1/2h drive north of the alps, but I enjoy also riding in the Black Forest or in France.

Welcome, Frank. About a zillion years ago I lived in Ludwigsburg up near Stuttgart. I even had a motorcycle back then, but I never took advantage of all the awesome riding there was to be had on all those great roads over there. I kick myself that I had a chance to ride in the Alps back then and didn't do it.

Hola, Frank. I too, also was stationed in Ludwigsburg, Flak Kaserne. Traveled a bit in the Black Forest but no motorcycle. Wonderful countryside in Southern Germany.
