    Hi from Bedford UK

    Hi guys,

    I retired three years ago and I'm loving it, after all I've wanted to retire since I was 16  :001:

    A bit over a year ago I was knocked off my Fazer 1000 and recently received my compensation payout. I decided to spend some of it on a '13 TTSE.

    As the weather is pretty horrible here I've only done a couple of short rides so far and I'm looking forward to getting more miles under my belt so I can get used to the extra weight. I also have a trusty VFR 750, the fourth I've owned since 1988. I've put over 1000 miles on the other 3.

    Hopefully my Trophy will prove to be as reliable as my VFR's.

    Cheers

    John

    I am two years from retirement eligibility (but probably going to go up to 7 more to get me to an even 55 Y.O.)and looking forward to it.  Going to hit 26 years as a LEO this summer.

    Enjoy the TTSE!  I love mine and I am coming from around 200,000 Goldwing miles (130k on the last one).

    Hello John and welcome!

    With retirement you will have so much time to really clock up some miles on this great bike!
