Hello from a London newbie
« on: June 07, 2021, 01:03:24 PM »
Hello,
Great to be here on this forum. I have just joined having taken delivery of a red GT Pro 900.
I used to have the 800XCX before trading it in for a BMW R1200GS.
Glad to be back in a Triumph and being part of the forum.

Hi Geoff,
Thanks for the warm welcome.
I gave up the GS because I was doing more riding around town, and a big GS is just too cumbersome for heavy London traffic. I looked at the GS800 and the 800 XR, but neither really matched up to the Tiger.

I had the 800XCX before the GS, so knew that the new model 900 would be equally as good.

Im slightly embarrassed to say that the heated seat on the Tiger was much more of a deciding factor that I would like to admit!

Real Cockneys are described as Born within the sound of the Bow Bells. Interestingly, the size of the sound field has decreased significantly with Urbanisation, but would have been as far as Stratford, Holborn and Southwark in the 19th Century. Nowadays, it is a very small area, and is mostly commercial, so a technical Cockney is literally a dying breed.. Anyway Welcome, me old China Plate...
