    My Scrambler has a new stable mate. 2009 XJR1300. Will be used for general duties and commuting.

    Thanks man. Yes, it is sadly too clean for the shit weather/roads and the gritters have been out many times here. It was 4 below yesterday morning and I went out a run when the roads kinda thawed. Went into a car park today and it was like a skating rink. Hardly bike weather o_O

    Nice bikes the xjr, there's a bloke up in Preston area who specialises in them both full bikes and parts. Look for green heart on eBay. The XJR will hold its value as the fan base is wide. All the best - no Torvill and Dean on car parks.

    Hi!
    Just found this thread...
    The stablemate of my Bonnie also is an XJR1300.

    I really like to swap the 4cyl against the parallel-twin. Both are fascinating and still completely different in their behavior.

    :)

    Funny you should mention that. That's what I think. Total opposites but I find although the twin in the Triumph lacks the urgency and manners of the yam it's more of an event to ride.
