    She's home

    Well, I am now the very proud owner of a 2013 Pacific Blue TTSE.

    I was at the dealership at 09.30 this morning, sad to be saying goodbye to the Honda, it served me well, no problems really, apart from the exhaust servo failing, 300 for a new servo and no guarantee on how long it would last, so I spent 300 on a carbon fibre exhaust and healtec gizmo to fool the ecu everything was fine.

    Anyway, paperwork duly signed, a quick walk around the bike, and I was away, unfortunately the sales guy didn't know how things worked  :187:, but I'll fathom stuff out as I plan to have the bike for a long time.

    I live about 40 mins from the dealer, It took 2.5 hrs to get home  :008: :745: :164: :164: ...all I can say is WOW, what a bike, I test rode my friends a couple of years ago, I cant remember his being like this, unless it's my age  :084:. After the initial " :172: this is a big bike" ten mins into riding away from picking it up I was cornering like it was on rails, and powering away in 4th- 5th.

    I will add some photo's tomorrow, as on arriving home, I decided to try and remove the dash panel, windscreen etc, in the hope of removing the Tom Tom sat nav power cable and mount and fit my Garmin stuff, it has the Triumph sat nav mount, but mine being slimmer, a little bit of fine adjustment will be needed to make it look the part. But on the whole, I'm already in love with this bike, bring on the spring and a few weekends away in France somewhere, O and the wife thinks the front looks like an owl, she has a vivid imagination, it's either that or some iffy mushrooms  :745:.

    Happy chappy....Paul.

    That looks like an add-on.  Too small of a picture to see clearly.  Is is a cigarette lighter socket?

    Wilko, looks like a battery charging lead. If it's on the right side of the headstock. Remove the battery cover on the right to see if it's attached to the battery.
