    My name is Tony, and i've been looking around here since a few years, mainly to pick up some technical tips. I own a Triumph Rocket Touring, on which i just love to ride across Europe in my spare time with some mates.
    I thought it's time to finally become a member now, and consider this my first good deed in the new year:)

    I wish you all a fantastic and damage free 2020.

    Welcome Tony, how many kms do you have on your Touring now? Where are you riding to this summer?

    I better be careful on what I say, as on a different motorcycle site I'm the TallRider... you might get blamed for my errors... :whitstling:

    Thanks CCJon,
    I have about 40.000 on her. In June i'm in Denmark, in July we'll be visiting the Pirate Days festival in Hastings England, August in the Alps, and in September a rally in East-Friesland.
    I guess being 6ft6 ,i also qualify as a tall rider. How tall are you? Are you comfy on your Rocket ?
