Glad to see someone else in BCMAG has realised the superiority of german motorcycles!
I've known this bloke for a few years now (hence the collection of photos at the bottom of the page) and he's recently caught up with me at BCMAG. Due to the enormous collection of Daves I know, he used to be refered to as "Wednesbury Dave". He's since moved to West Brom, so Deb has re-christened him as "Baggie Dave" - some football reference that is beyond me, but it seems to suit him.
A word of warning: The "Tortoise" nickname refers to his strangely shaped tent, not to his riding style. Do not try to take this guy down twisty lanes - he's a complete psycho! Dave is single handedly destroying the reputation of beemer riders as sensible and slow (good man!)
A while ago Dave got thrown off his previous bike when the front brake decided to
seize (poor maintenance - bad boy!) Below you can see some of the pictures he sent of the aftermath.
He's still trying to find a way to scan the X-ray, but as soon as he works it out, I'll post a copy here.
There is nothing wrong with this photo - it's Dave who was a bit blurred at the time!
