    After 44 years of bike ownership, I have found one of the nicest bikes to ride stock, plenty of power, good economy, very maneuverable, nice sound.
    Added on 70 miles today before weather turned.

    Have to agree after adding bar risers and reupholstered the seat, my T120 is the best bike I've owned.

    I've got the prestige kit on this bike and the seat is comfy but does get a little hard after a while still needs to break it in.
    As for the risers going to wait a bit until I think they are needed.
    Thought the suspension was fair but the front did jolt on some bumps. Got Hagon coming next week so will compare them.

    Mine had the stock seat , I just found the bars a touch too low and forward. Put US V and H on, alarm, pannier rails, four bar badge, having x pipe fitted , I think that will be about it, I know famous last words.

    This will keep them sleeping safely, I've removed the lolly pop and side reflectors.

    Your bike looks great and I agree with tiglet that tank badge is sharp.

    Certainly makes the bike look good, probably the reason I was taken to it.

    Hi Cupoftea. Before you got the bike you posted that you were going to change the spokes to stainless steel and convert the wheels to tubeless. Did you do it in the end?

    Hi, not yet but I think that the spokes are stainless already.
