Motorcycle Delivery

Choosing the right Motorcycle for this trip was an easy exercise, I wanted a reliable bike with a pedigree, good supporting dealer and above all fitting my budget. Enter the BMW R1150GS, I went to Tristar owned by Jaafar Behbehani and voila it was there, a 2001 Beemer Blue and White, I spoke to Salem the Sales Manager to take it out on a test drive, within minutes the bike was ready and off I went on the Gulf Road as expected the Beemer was predictable and neutral, engine pulled nicely, a small wobble was felt on deceleration. I struck the deal with Salem, and the bike was delivered promptly on the 9th at 18:00 and to my surprise fitted with a brand new Metzeler front tire, as Salem explained the old tire was worn hence the cause of the wobble. Great stuff, Tristar service is A++ and their staff is super friendly.

Very interesting and thorough description of the preparation. I am truly impressed with your concern for your butt!! But anyone who rides long distance would understand your concerns.
Hope you'll have a successful and trouble free trip.
