Just a few more hours.....
« on: April 12, 2014, 06:31:51 am »
Hi everyone. Newbie here from Renton WA.   Been lurking for a couple months.  I test rode a brand new 2013 lunar silver TTSE (that's the fast one right??) this afternoon and put down my deposit. I take delivery tomorrow afternoon. I haven't owned a bike since I sold my Honda V65 about fifteen years ago. Looking forward to many years with a really sweet and high tech machine.

I bet you're used to riding in the rain!

But see below for the faster color!

I think you will find the more you ride the TTSE, the more you will enjoy it. It's addicting, so beware.

Spend some time with the owner's manual and check into all the features in the many menus, including audio. Do this while stopped until you get very used to it all. There are a lot of distractions to play with on this bike, so be very careful!

Hello and welcome :400:

Great, forum, good people, AMAZING BIKE!

You will seriously love it! :047:

As don says, compared to a bike of 15 years ago this is a lot of machine with a lot of distractions. Time spent reading the manual and playing with all the buttons and settings in your driveway will make for an even better riding experience!

Enjoy and be safe!

Welcome aboard twmcneilly  :821: Wish you a lot of fun riding your new bike. If I may suggest take it easy, it's for sure very different from bikes you might have ridden 15 years ago. You could easily be carried away!

An old biker must be a good rider

Welcome.
Just got out for my second ride of the year. You are going to love this bike.
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.
