    Dear fellow-riders!

    My name is Daniel, I live in a rather small town near Frankfurt/Main.
    We have great biking-roads around here; they come in all varieties: picturesque, twisty and 'Autobahn' of course.. So there's a course to chart for every mood. :)
    Currently, my 4th Triumph is awaiting its registration at the dealer.
    A Bonneville T120 in Cranberry/Silver.
    As you can imagine, I spend too much time drooling on the floor around my new precious :D

    Well I am looking forward to lots of interesting and informative hours here in the forum together
    with you.
    For now: Merry Christmas to everyone and for those who ride: dry and saltfree roads.

    Cheers, Daniel

    Hello Crispey,
    no, fortunately not, we just decided to register it in January, so it says 2017 in the papers...

    But those will be two hard weeks anyway... :rolleyes:

    Pics of the new bike will be posted, no doubt!

    Hi,
    I have the same model, good fun and a lot different to my previous Tiger 800 and no less fun. Hope you don't have the recalls or replacement parts etc.

    Hello John,
    no, I asked about the recalls and my bike is not bothered with them.
    I had a Tiger 800 XC as well 2, or three years ago. A good machine, but I think, I am more a parallel-twin-man :)

    Can not wait to pick it up though.
    Hopefully the weather improves a little ;)

    Madhouse makes me feel at home right away.
    Thanks for the compliment; yes I am German, but I lived in the Commonwealth for a couple of years
    (Bahamas/Long Island) and added a little colour to my English ;)

    I do: A Yamaha XJR1300. Went for a ride a couple of days ago. Thought, the roads were nice and dry
    but the deeper I ventured into the Hansel & Gretel forests, the more wintery conditions turned out...
    Looking at the poor bike after my return, it was baked in salt...
    But that's how you get a little extra quality-time with your motorcycle: cleaning it ;)

    Rich, I am not connected to any kind of photo-bucket, or platforms like this, to URL a pic and upload it here. But since this is our second exchange, where a pic would be in order, I suggest, that I open an album in the gallery-section...
    Will post the XJR and my uncle on the Horex Regina.

    Cheers!

    Dan, choose 'Upload a file' button bottom right, browse to the photo on your pc and Bob's your uncle, it will load here, thumbnail or choose full image. We like photos, words are hard work ;)
