From Paris with happyness
« on: March 27, 2015, 05:02:37 am »
Hi there,

My name is Jean-François, I'm 56, from Paris France.

I ordered a brand new TTSE 2 weeks ago and will get it on saturday. A blue one.

Before, I had a wonderful BMW R1150RT from 2001 which now reaches 176,000 kms and, as I had the opportunity of buying a new bike, after couples of test rides, my choice was easy as I didn't like the new R1200RT (my wife neither).

I'm riding daily on a 50 kms base regardless of the weather.

Otherwise, I'm found of old jazz guitars (I've got 10 of them).

My wife owns a Kawasaki ER5 and I bought her an old KZ750 L4 from 1984 I will refurbish during this summer.

I hope (I'm pretty sure) I'll find here tons of good advices and tricks in order to enjoy my choice.

See you soon on the European roads.
Jofo

Hi,

Many thanks for the welcome.

@Verdun95, I bought it at RPM77 (Ponteault Combault).

I hope I will be able to ride it as much as my BMW (which still can go to more than 250,000) with the same (even better) pleasure.

To be honnest, I'm very excited, awaiting for tomorrow morning 10AM

I will post some pictures and my first impressions.
