BMW Rider Training's Chief Instructor Ian Biederman has seen thousands of riders through their tests over the years. However, not many go so quickly from L-plates to their dream road trip as recent visitor David Blundell.
Joining us for his seven-day Direct Access course in June, David was on the road to France, Germany, Switzerland and more in July - and he sent daily updates to Ian and the team.
We loved David's story, so we've shared a few highlights from his photo diary here.
|David is a helicopter and aerobatic plane pilot. |
And he's smitten with his first bike - an R 1200 GS.
"Then it was full power down to the valley floor, and up the switchbacks to Zell am See.
Arriving nicely in time for supper and sunset by the lake."
|"Into Grindelwald to buy some Toblerone and a cuckoo clock."|
|"I set the nav to curvy roads - blimey - there are some
very curvy roads!!!"|
