G'day all

G'day folks, the name's Jean-Claude,french boofhead who's been living in Oz for 10 years or so.I currently own an 05 speed triple and a 2010 Tiger (start flaming). I could read on another thread that was redundant well maybe..But from my point of view these are two really different bikes. I use to have a CBR blackbird that i changed for the speedy,but don't see myself doing 1000ks on it, that's why i also bought the tiger better riding position IMO, higher bars and lower pegs maybe but my body doesn't feel like i've been ran over by a raod train after long trips.
A freind of mine, the wolf( hey mate what do ya think of my username ) ask me why 2 bikes? Hey what kind of dodgy excuse do you what to hear

The bird is a wonderful bike for most things, but I never seem to have any functioning brain cells when on mine. I ride my Speedy when I don't want tickets, and I don't want to risk my life, and I don't want to have blurred vision. But when I do...I ride my bird.

Glad you're here on TRATnet old friend!
