    Time for a change

    The T100 is out. I'll be bringing home a T120 from the dealership when the salt is thoroughly washed from the road but rain and the temperature rises above 50F. I've been in this holding pattern for about a month. It's getting old.
    My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

    Way too much salt in northern NJ as well. Getting showers right now. Looks like Ohio is getting a good wash as well!
      Maybe we'll both be riding soon?

    The holding pattern is getting old!  Man I am ready to ride and the weather in Jersey has been rough.

    There's nothing but rain in the 8 day forecast, except Monday. Two problems. The dealership isn't open on Monday and I'm going to Chicago to see my son and he sweetheart. Though I signed the paperwork yesterday and it is now my motorcycle I don't see me getting it home for at least a week.

    My best mate traded his T100 (loved the looks, wasn't too satisfied with power output) for a T120.   

    He LOVES the T120.      :046:

    Beyond the similarity in looks it's a very different ride. Essentially the same weight but a lot more power. Smaller front wheel so the handling is better. Lots of amenities. The engine doesn't need the higher rpm that the T100 liked!

    I'm very happy so far. Next week is the first service and at that time I'll add cruise control, a back rest and a rear rack.
