    Not something I find easy. Some of you will know I've got a bit of money coming soon (60 five weeks today) and I've been toying with the idea of a T100 or T120. No offence to owners, but it feels like I'm coming to an age where I should be looking at these types of bikes. Recently though I've had some good miles on both my triples, and realised that for different reasons I should keep them. Since I put risers on the Sprint it's so much nicer to ride, feels like my creaking body can go a bit longer with a sports tourer. S3 is just a great bike, and also for sentimental reasons I'd find it hard to let it go. So I'll certainly be taking test rides, but I think there's a bit more life in what I currently own, TBH. I think I'd rather spend that cash on a proper tour of Spain. So much to see. I can now bathe in the calm that making important decisions brings. :)

    Sounds like good thinking on your part, if your still enjoying the bike then why rush to spend money just 'cos it's there....will still be there in a year or whenever you decide you want a change.
    I had a ride on a Scrambler at the weekend, and I enjoyed it round town, but it's not the bike I'd choose for rides out. Nothing at all wrong with it, just doesn't suit me at the moment.

    Sounds like a logical decision.
    Why spend out on a new bike when you're happy with what you've got.

    Went to have a look at this lady, was there her first time around, Jaffa for me, but she is so tall, at 5.10, not short, I could just get feet to to touch down, do not remember them like that

    Thread mixup here mate but listen, I'm much shorter than that and rode it no problem. My Speed Triple feels a similar height. Could always buy the official Low Seat at £254 or ring Tony Archer! :)
