Hi from Sydney
« on: April 21, 2021, 12:48:10 AM »
Hi Folks,

I am a new adventure rider from Sydney. Only been riding about 2 years. Spent my first year (post L's) on a Triumph Striple 765. Loved it. Then COVID hit and I thought I'd do some staycations, so sold the Striple and bought a BMW F850 GSA but am suffering from buyers remorse. The BMW is a nice bike, but it's super uncomfortable. Test ride comfort = outstanding. 1+ hr riding turns me into a grumpy bear.

So, I might be swallowing my pride and burning some cash by switching back to Triumph, this time looking at a Tiger. I'm on here to find out more.

Hi &  :401: from the Central Coast,

I live up on the Central Coast but I am down at my daughters in North Curl Curl regular, so if you fancy a coffee and a chat some time let me know.
Cheers Jim
