Evening all, got my deposit down on a silver Thruxton R today, so looking forward to this experience. I got a call from a dealer whom I visited some time ago when I was thinking about a Striple but that didn't pan out as I was waiting to sell a car. Roll on a few months later I got a call requesting some assistance in getting the dealers test ride numbers up before year end...come and ride anything you like he said. I chose two for the hell of it, no plans to buy at all. First up, a Tiger Sport 1050 which was OK but I just didn't gel with it. Second ride of the day was the Thruxton R and it just 'clicked'. I sold it to myself, he didn't have to do a thing! Anyhow, I'll be having the Track Racer Kit with it which is likely to be fitted bar the tank strap and fairing. Really not sure about those parts. I also like it completely stock tbh. Never been on a bike which gives so much back to the rider, it doesn't seem to matter how fast you go on it the effect is the same! Roll on delivery day.... Going to be asking for advice here on cleaning and care products for the array of different surfaces. Wheel and hub brushes seem like they'll be needed so feel free to advise. Cheers for now. Ashley.
