Good Morning and thanks for accepting my application to access the Forum.

I reside in North Devon, am 73  and am in the process of maintaining and running a 89/90 600 RC which I purchased two years ago. In my opinion it runs and looks far better than it did when I first saw it. One of only 13 in the UK and only 4 registered for the road, it brings a smile to my face every time I ride it. It is far from 'concours' condition but  looks to have experienced life! Obtaining spares in the uk can be an interesting challenge; the fun is in the hunt. Prior to buying the bike I had sold a 1996 BMW 1100RT as  it had started to get too heavy and cumbersome. I then saw my current machine advertised which I vaguely remebered. Even in the condition it was then I just had to get hold of it. Love riding it; even on longish runs I find it more confortable than the BMW. Well see how the future pans out! Thanks again. :)

Welcome R1100RT
North devon, this is the Rex devon cats area?   :)
  If you have pictures of your bike, we’ll take it. There are some precautions with the Bi Gilera, including the mandatory replacement of the belt every 12000 kms or 2 years .Do not hesitate if you have some questions.

Devon is a nice place, not far from my Brittany... And on the way to Isle Of Man !

Welcome R1100RT!

I hope you'll find here some help to keep your RC running. Guess you already know this, but you can find some interesting information on Gilera Network too :)
