    Hi there!

    Been stumbling on this forum for some time now and then, saw someones question about something I figured I could share my experience with and go ahead and create an account.

    So, I'm Kevin... From the Netherlands, have my motorcycle license for about 3 years now. I knew I wanted to ride motorcycles when I was 12 and was allowed to hop on on my uncles BMW K1100RT, but it took me 25 years to get there. We're there now though!

    Bike History:
    Started with a Kawasaki Z900 (2020 model), because why not.... was all good fun, but wanted something more comfortable, so after 6 months and 6k kms later traded it in for a Kawasaki Versys 1000 SE from 2019.

    It was very hard to choose for me, as I almost like every type of bike (besides 1 cylinder Super Moto's). In the near 3 years of having my license, I've been lucky enough to try 17 different bikes, from Gold Wing 1800 GL to KTM 690 SMC R, and from BMW K1100 to Energica Experia and the Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak.

    I've got the Versys for 2 years and some months now, and we've been great places together already, like doing a road trip from Netherlands, to Germany (Eifel and Black Forrest), to drive to the Grossglockner in Austria and back in a week together with my mate last year. Which was great fun!

    Some pics of the bike:




    Because I find the Netherlands being pretty boring to ride (if compared to Germany etc), I don't ride as much anymore as I would like anymore. So I'll just try to plan more trips to nicer places.

    Cheers!
