Hello to all...

As it's only polite to do as "the new guy" (and it's mandatory) hereby a short introduction of me...
I'm Dennis de Vries, sounds Dutch and so it is, i'm from the Netherlands.
A 44 year old truckdriver, husband and father of 3 teenagers (yep, going grey fast lately)
Diagnosed with Asperger Syndrom, as are 2 of my kids, in other words sligtly autistic, but it doesn't hurt.... 
Former car mechanic and roadside assistance mechanic so a bit familiar with tools, sadly no nice shed to work in...
My ride is a '89 K75RT in white (somewhere under all that roaddirt anyway) wich has done a little over 390k km by now.


I would tell more but that's about it.....
Feel free to ask if you want to know more...

Welcome, Dennis. You've joined a great group of people. 

I hope your K75 is better than the last one I saw in Holland in February last year - abandoned on the streets of Amsterdam. It looked very sad. Crying or Very sad

My direct knowledge of Holland is mainly around Amsterdam and Almere, but I'm sure I travelled in your area briefly in about 2007. I might have to visit again.  Very Happy

Bill

Hi Dennis

I sometimes go to Amsterdam too.

Welcome to the forum and maybe just maybe you might get to meet a few more forum Kases. Everyone is very helpful and we enjoy a little chat and banter too.

Indian036 has been over to see us here and travelled with me around some nice roads. Met Beamer over here for a beer last week while he was in the area as we say.
