Hello from Cyprus

Hello to you all!
I’ve been riding for 45 years and am in negotiations to buy a beautiful 1975 Goldwing from a chap in Germany. I’m sure I’ll be pestering you all after she arrives. Take care and safe riding.

Hello Cyprus. I hope all has gone well with the purchase and you have many safe years riding there. You have some great weather and scenery.
I am just finishing rebuilding my '83 1100 that I have brought with me to Scotland from Cyprus (Near Larnaca).
