Good day from Detroit Michigan
« on: February 12, 2014, 05:07:56 am »
Hello all, new to the forum. Purchased my Pacific Blue SE in September, put about 1700 miles oh her before snow started and hasn' let up since November. I can usually get 9-10 months riding bu t this winter has been particularly harsh! Had a Yamaha FZ1 (still do actually if anyone wants to buy it) which I love, just wanted something with more amenities. Narrowed it down to the K1600 & the SE. Test rode them both & just liked the way the triumph handled better, felt like the fazer with more wind protection!
Anyway,
Cheers!

welcome to the Club :400: I guess your Blue Beauty is connected to some sort of battery maintenance device, waiting for the weather to behave in a more "biking" fashion?
An old biker must be a good rider

You made a great choice!

I also was considering between the BMW K1600GTL & TTSE. And I too chose the blue TTSE.

Welcome - I'm on the other side of the state - Grand Rapids.  Maybe we'll get an early thaw.
