Hello All-New Thunderbird 1600-what a ride!

Rejoining the group as I am having so much trouble with other account so starting a new. I'm into the new bike, Thunderbird SE about 2 weeks. Main problem with the bike is that it's so much fun to drive I don't want to go to work. But I have to make the payments so off to work I go. Did a 250 loop in the Florida Everglades and I'm glad I did not go for the BMW R1200RT, this bike is better for me. You have to love the bike you own and I love this one.

If you can read this shirt my wife is on her own bike!

Looked like this was the group to join. I'm hoping to put another 250 miles on this weekend. There is a "Toy Ride" on Sunday but I'm prudent and not going to ride with thousands until I get really proficient in this new bike.

First service this week then I can see what this bike does at higher RPM's but for me plenty fast even driving it slow.

Ride safe all,

Capt T
