Finally....
« on: January 05, 2015, 05:41:09 pm »
Hi Everyone,

I've been reading the Topics and Posting a few comments for the last couple of weeks now, but FINALLY I have my '12 TTSE..

Only 35 miles of winding roads today, just to get the feel of her.
A few things to look at.... the Battery for one. Only 12.2 volts at the terminals when I picked her up but up to 12.6 volts by the time I got home. It's on a Charger at the moment. No Date Code that I can decipher but "2B161" is stamped between the Terminals. A Lithium Ferro Phosphate "replacement" is due later this week.

All the bells and whistles appear to work as expected, though I took the precaution of turning the Audio Unit OFF.

The Tyres are Pirelli Angel ST (never used these before) with less than 2mm of tread left at the most central TWIs but plenty left elsewhere. Hopefully they will suffice until the 10K Mile Service which is only 1.5K miles away now.

A pair of Panniers, a Top Box and a Tank Bag all together weigh 24.6 Kg....! Won't be lugging that around if I don't need to.

I must say I was mightily impressed by the performance during a "little overtaking manoeuvre" during my ride back home today. Just opened the throttle a bit at 50mph in 4th and I was where I wanted to be without any apparent effort...
Compared to the two earlier Hinckley Trophies that I also own, this TTSE is an absolute dream at low speed and in traffic.. just so easy and confidence inspiring.

I'm certainly going to enjoy this wonderful bike

Cheers
