Hi from Staffordshire
« on: 21 February, 2020, 06:06:25 PM »
Hi everyone, just a quick post to introduce myself. I have just picked up a 2019 TS. Had a speed triple for a few years and wanted something I could tour on. Love the 1050 engine so it was an easy choice going for a TS.

Some great info on this forum and looking forward to chatting with you all 😁

Hi Tigermike

Yeah the weather has been really bad. I managed to get out for an hour today which was good 👍

Yes Scorpion exhaust was on the bike when I purchased it. Still debating whether to put a low level SC project on or keep this one. Not sure a low level will fit though as I've got a centre stand

@Tigermike ... yes got a good deal. I was going for a Tiger 900 but thought to wait till the first release gremlins are ironed out. Prices on TS are really good at the min and to me the TS is a better bike, stonking engine and less electronics that can go wrong.

Thanks @yellowdog 👍

@paul2bikes .. yes mate .. staffs was hit with the floods quite bad. I live on higher ground so it's been ok for me. Winds damaged the house but I'd rather have that than floods.
