    I'm looking forward to seeing what your "tinkering" through the winter months leads to with your new find so please keep us posted, @johne! Hope you enjoy the new bike. Congrats on the new addition.

    It's quite insane. Clutch and suspension are hard but the exhaust note is adicting!

    HA!
    It wants to go fast all the time. Throttle is twitchy and it really wants to be above 7000 rpm. I got it up to 95mph in 2nd gear and it had not reached the red line.
    I ride a 2022 Speed Twin which I've always found to be torquey but the Brutale has 212hp and all the revs.
    However, it does cost USD30,000.00 and it's too much of a hassle to be enjoyed in a relaxed manner.

    Did a bit of light service work on my ninja: oil and filter, rear brake pads, fluid checks, all that jazz...

    Discovered that the front left turn signal wasn't working. Bulb was good. Pulled off about 5000 pieces of fairing plastic to get to the wiring, and found that the connector had come loose. Fixed that, which fixed the light. Then I did the fairing jigsaw dexterity puzzle in reverse to put it back together, amazingly without any pieces missing, and without finding that I had any pieces left over when I thought I was done.

    Even more amazingly, the turn signal still worked once I had the bike back together (tricksy little bastards love to play gremlin games sometimes).

    As a reward for both of us, I took it out for a nice little spin on some of my favorite local sets of twisties, and then to dinner, and then put it back on the battery tender...

    I’d be on sharing about my non- Triumph, @Dartplayer, but I am off on a scuba trip in Cozumel, Mexico. But then, here I am at the moment (4pm here) on my iPhone on the condo couch posting a message to you. :joy:
    Today was the first day of diving, and we saw the largest turtle I’ve ever seen underwater (or on land for that matter), a huge green moray, and a smallish reef shark. And lots more of “the usual suspects“. I have a few threads to post about motorcycles upon my return to the desert-a rally and a vintage bike show. But I did notice what time it was when you took that screenshot. What’s your time difference from the UK and the US? And are you really on the forum at 2:58 am your time? ;):eek: :joy:
