    Hi all
    Great to join the forum and looking forward to many chats and postings. Happy to meet anyone that maybe lives close by in Staines or Surrey area.

    Passed my test back in 1992 and gave up bikes after kid's came along and now back to biking. I am having lessons from an ex Police motorbike rider that is now retired. Anyone in my area interested let me know and I'll pass on his details.

    PS I'm on the left ! ...this was me and Graham just off to Isle of Wight couple of weekends ago.

    Best wishes with the StTriple. I had mine - same model as yours- for 7 years and over 60,000km. Brilliant bike.
    Cheers.
    Paul.

    Cheers Paul ...agree for the money the bike can do it all...touring, track use and general fun on B roads. What are you riding now ?
    Looks a lovely part of the world where you live ...

    That's a difficult question to answer, as they are both very different. IMO both have loads of character, both look great, and both perform well in the role they are designed for. Each of them provides a different experience, feeling and appreciation when riding, and I get equal pleasure from both.
