    It is very similar, in fact in sport mode it was difficult to tell the diference on the road. I guess you might be able to on the track, but even then I'm not so sure. Both are a really good ride....

    Edit: Just realised you quoted the speedmaster, I thought you were refering to the Speed Twin, which is what I test rode. Against the speedmaster the thruxton is a much more accomplished ride when you push it along. The additional power is very noticeable particularly in sport mode, having said that the speedmassster is no slouch.

    The thruxton is a lot more comfortable than it looks, it's in the top 2 of the most comfortable bikes I've owned. But I do like to be a little lent forward. Couldn't get on with the bolt upright position of the tiger 800's I had.

    not had the bike 2 weeks yet,thought i would change the plugs to iridium and whilst i wait for DEMON TWEEKS to send me the k & n air filter which is nearly a week late,thought i would make myself a satnav bracket,after finding out the only one above the clocks is a navihalter and they are 98.50 euros,definitely making my own,really pleased with it,after taking the nose cone off/headlights i noticed one of the 4 plastic lugs holding the lights to the metal bracket had snapped off and the metal bracket that bolts to the headstock had snapped in half,so got that welded,and glued the plastic lug,a satisfying job all in all.

    I cannot work out if he is serious of if this is just a piss take. OK back in the 80's I picked out the words Metzeler and Me55atronic on the sidewalls of my GSX250 but I used a TyreArt pen and only did it once, as it washed off with rain after a few days and looked crap. That blue paint looks shit to start with, the solvents in the industrial looking paint will probably eat into the tyre and he didn't bother washing the whole bike which would have made it look way better than that mess he added...

    Looking great, Ron. Is that the KTM rad.
    That's looking REALLY nice! Good work that man!

    Is that the replacement reflector on the rad cowl? Looks like a good fit and match. So, next step?
