Hello From East Yorkshire
on: 03 May, 2021, 09:11:26 PM
Hello everyone,

Well, this is a massive change for me, been a racer in my youth and born again racer in my not so youth. Far too many injuries to reel off left me dreading the weekend ride on my road going GSXR 1000, so I took a (very) deep breath and chopped her in for my 2013 Sport 1050.

Honesty, I have not had this much fun on the road for as long as I can remember being a biker. Truly a superb and hilarious bike. Just need a different screen, an exhaust that shows off that brilliant triple tone, new shock and some crash bars.

The blade in the pic belongs to my much better half. We don’t talk about me getting to Helmsley before her……  :192:
Look forward to being a part of the community.

Up your way is Tiger territory  :007:

loads of screens out there, bit of a gamble but for me MRA x screen with the wing as it's multi adjustable

Thanks folks, it's already been a goldmine. Triumphs it appears, have a few more "funnies" than the Jap bikes.
