Big up for your CBT T: and good luck with the full test T: T:

Nice to see someone else likes Triumphs

Here's mine...
fabuloso!!

that is the america isnt it? what year is is as they say the pre 2011 model the pegs were further forward
and as my old fella only has a 29" inside leg, the 2011 suits him, just wondering if there was much difference?

cheers

Nice one buddy, are you doing the full DAS course or the restricted?? If you can, do the full version becasue restricting a big bike is a PITA and they never run right T:T:
thanks, yes doing the DAS best way really

well done!! bit of advise i used to give my trainies when i was instructing buy the best gear that you can afford and enjoy two wheels!!
cheers, i will do thanks, you feel totally naked on a bike without taking your clothes off ay? defo going shopping at the weekend

hey, as another oldie, we get good cheap insurance.
congrats, you won't regret it.
the only advantage to getting old ay!!

Nope, 08 Speedmaster. Got 5 spokes + twin discs and straight bars as standard. I've got fly screen, belly pan and straight through pipes.

Ditto ref riding gear.. better off getting a lesser bike to get better gear. bike can be replaced, you can't!!
