After not getting on with my 77 R60/7 I was at the local carboot sale met a mate who said he was selling his R80GS, didn't know he even had one! went round and brought it, wife could not moan as she wanted to go to the carboot in the first place.
It done alot of miles including round the world from new 88 through 89 over 30000 miles then around Essex until 2008 including rebuild then to Gloucestershire. Had a 50 mile ride today over mixture of roads expressway to lanes and seems more my kind of bike than the R60/7.
Fit my digital map display tomorrow and take it a bit further.

on it & decided it does not suit me, too much ride on which means leaning forward, crick in the neck and weight on my hands which the TAs dont so again back to TAs more ride in seating.
now sold & back on a trusty (I hope!) TA
