So sorry I went for the TT
« on: July 20, 2014, 08:22:52 pm »
I was on the motorway (interstate) today, when I found myself behind a BMW K1600GT.  The old fogies did look very comfortable doing their 60mph on the inside lane, it made me wonder why I hadn't bought one as I cruised past it.

They did look comfortable though, like old people you see on those battery operated things that go round supermarkets.

I was so jealous for about 5 milliseconds as I thought they had more money than sense.  The BMW bus did look good with the septuagenarians aboard.. 

I sometimes wonder why I bought the Triumph ;)

There's no denying it, I like the way they've mimicked the look of the 1969 Rocket 3 / Trident ray gun silencers from the back but, beyond that, I'm struggling....
