    Ikkieman here to say hi (finally!)

    Well guys and girls, a hello from The Netherlands. Can't remember if I had introduced myself here before or not, so here goes.

    My name is Jeroen, i live in Gouda and ride as of yet a BMW K1300GT. Tomorrow however, is time for a test drive of the TTSE as a replacement for the K.

    I'm 32, work as a lab tech in charge of two Roche Cobas6000 systems and a bunch of test, so my diagnostic skills are quite on par with a doctor. So, most of the time I can diagnose problems with my bikes as well.
    I've been driving for 8 years now and have 260k km on two wheels with my past and present bikes which include a
    • Honda Deauville 650 (I still have a soft spot for the Deau)
    • Yamaha Diversion 900S
    • Honda ST1300 Pan European
    • BMW K1300GT
    All of the previous bikes before the K are sold and perhaps, starting tomorrow, I've got a new bike to look forward to. That's if the missus and wallet agree with me.  :007:

    Here's a very simple formula for your Diagnostic Skills :

    Test Ride tomorrow = Trophy Owner soon after  :169:

    Picking her up next week with a new battery, new fluids (all of 'em) on june 6th and a half year of warranty (pretty standard in the Netherlands).

    Ellen (my wife) loved the bike as well with the higher comfort than the beemer.
