A bit about Mark

I spent 24 years in the Royal Navy as a Clearance Diver then worked abroad in Afghanistan, Lebanon, Libya, Peru and Laos clearing up ammunition and Landmines after their respective wars for 13 years.

Came home in 2013 now do what I want whenever I want with Cornish Stig’s agreement…

My Bike

Currently I’m riding the BMW F850GSA which I love. Previously I’ve had 5 BMW R1200GSA’s but just fancied a change.

Not a big fan of sports bikes so most of my bikes have been ‘adventure’ type machines.

I have added bits to my bikes but I only like to add practical bits and if that involves not following the crowd even better…
