Hello from Surrey, England.

Hi to everyone on the HUBB.
My name is Martin and i live in Surrey, England. I've been riding 34 years and have done several bike trips abroad but only around Europe. But since buying a KLR 650 Tengai i have been thinking of rides to new destinations. Met up with many like minded folk at the 'Adventure Travel Day' at the Ace Cafe, London today. Not sure where or when my first trip will be but i'm sure, though this site, i'll find plenty of ideas.
Bikes; Klr650 Tengai 1990
ZRX1100 1999
Z750 1981

Hi

Hi Martin

Also had a great day at the Ace Cafe and spoke to many interesting people and enjoyed the guest speakers.

Live up near Banbury and moved up from Staines about 10 years ago. My Dad still lives in Egham, so in Surrey usually once a week.

Nice to hear from you and hope you make your trip soon.

Cheers


Chris

Martin! I noticed the Tengai at the Ace - the only Kwak there (if i remember correctly...). Made a change from the GS Brigade . I see you're a Kwak fan, me too over the years, and also used to run a ZRX11 (green, naturally...). Enjoy HUBBing

Thanks for the welcome guys. Yes indeed that was my red Tengai! Folk there were genuinely interested in it. Really surprised there wasn't more KLR's.
