    Hello to you all.

    That’s great to hear. I just ordered one. My stock seat has as rip and the repair cost was basically the same so I decided to try out the long haul. Glad to hear it is better. I hope I find it to be the same for me. I’ve seen the bead things, but never tried them. I imagine they help with...

    Hello to you all.

    Hey Boog. Ouch! What a bummer - meeting Bambi in that way. I've had a couple close calls, but fortunately they have all decided to go back the other way. Doesn't change the pucker factor though. I just rode my FZ1 up to Rolling Thunder on Sunday. Wanted to take the Rocket, but I haven't...

    Hello to you all.

    You all need to get a room, what with all that love being shown to one another. I don’t know how far West Sussex is from the Moors, but I hope it is far enough to make for a good ride ( blue or black) So, from the exchange we now know that Grumpy has some kind of custom side saddle for riding...

    Hello to you all.

    Thanks hoopla! A lot of open road up there for you to enjoy. Not sure which has more pull, the Rocket or the logging trucks! Cheers, Greg

    Hello to you all.

    Hi Nat67. I’m not sure if you are taking a piss or not, but yes, it is. Not a glamour shot, but here’s a wider view, and a better shot of the tank.

    Hello to you all.

    Thanks for sharing idk (I’m thinking you’re just being modest there - seems you know a lot). Nice work on the write-up. Cheers, Greg

    Hello to you all.

    Thanks, barbagris. Good counsel on the DEcosse keyswitch. I agree, his setup seems awesome. Unfortunately, I need to do something sooner than later: I want to take this bike up to Rolling Thunder in DC this weekend - this, by the way, will be the last year that they do this in memory of POWs and...

    LOL - well they take full advantage of that hour then! Well done.

    Thank you, TURBO200R4. That picture is a hoot.

    Hello to you all.

    Thank you, Kipper. I appreciate it. I've heard of some route you guys have over there...something like the North Coast loop, or something. Do I have that right?

    Hello to you all.

    Hello Fingers, and thanks for the welcome. I live in Richmond, VA now. Grew up in Colorado. Spent a few years in Orlando - not too far from where you are - back in my Navy days.

    Hello to you all.

    LOL - you have a point there. I have been choosing the Rocket for a lot of my rides lately, but my ignition just started shutting the bike down whenever I turn to the left, so that makes it easy to decide not to ride that one for a while. I am very fortunate that each bike I have is a real...

    Hello to you all.

    Hmm. Yet another way to part ways with my money. Recall I have a BMW too. I'm not sure I need another way! Actually, I've discovered Triumph's willingness to take my money already with the keyswitch that has failed...and I have a jumpy transmission in second gear. Interestingly, the second gear...
