Words and photos by Paul Saunders

I’ve only recently discovered your magazine (more like a reference book actually!!) and really enjoy every edition. I agree with your comments in the last issue – we all ride and love bikes, and the brand isn’t really that important – if we all loved one particular model it would be a bloody dull world!

Anyway, I presently own a BM GS Adventure, but for many years rode an XL250 in South Africa, the UK and rode one when I traveled overland from the UK to Australia in the mid ‘70s.

I still have a very soft spot for this bike and am presently restoring one I bought on eBay.

I’ve enclosed some XL photos from South Africa and on the way to Aussie.
