Newbie based at Kurmond NSW

Post  amord on Sat 18 Mar 2017, 9:27 am

Hi Guys's n Gal's ?

I'm an old greybeard, after thrashing my Triumph T100 as a teenager in the Uk, I started riding again here about 20 years ago.  Had a few bikes including a GSF750 which I really enjoyed. 

Right now I have a 2015 Triumph Tiger 1050 Sport up for sale, nice bike but a bit tall and a bit top heavy, my aging body struggles to get the leg over, (the bike as well  Crying or Very sad), I'm an average 5"10" but I'm very wary of the weight moving it around the shed, so she has to go.

I found a black 1250FA with only 520klm on it and it now belongs to me  cheers  Only rode it home half hour from Penrith yesterday, (took advantage of a break in the rain), and I thinks I'm gonna love it, that awesome torque will become addictive methinks and the Tiger is no slouch.

I've read bits n pieces about it's handling but I don't think my non knee down style will be bothered but I do think the speed limits are bullshit Rolling Eyes 

I look forward to tic tacking with you guys and maybe getting a ride in with some of you as well.

Cheers, Dave

It's a 2015 build bought in Oct last year, buyer was on the short side, had wrist and thumb problem and couldn't hack the lean forward. So he bought something more upright.

She's as good as a new one and if the rain continues to hold off I might even take her round the local loop.

Chook I'm kicking myself, we've booked to fly to Cairns this coming week-end to visit my sister, haven't been up there for a few years and we booked early, got some flights $210 each way!  that's less than half normal price... Bugger.

But I did get down to PI for the WSBK so can't complain.

Hi Chalkie,

Mate I was too vain to put my year of birth in, thought you might all call me grandad  Razz

I can give you a couple of years mate ! Bejesus where have all the years gone ? But I still enjoy perving on these young sheilas, especially if they have a nice rack and a great bum  Very Happy
