1200GS to Speedmaster

Morning all!

One week into owning a new Speedmaster, 650 miles covered and I absolutely love it!

Been riding a BMW 1200GS for about five years and have toured most of Europe including Turkey but fancied something a bit more 'fun' for Sunday afternoons and shorter runs. So far, I am an absolute convert, in fact I reckon the BM might start to gather dust. Whilst the GS is GREAT at the long distance stuff, the Triumph has reawoken my love of bikes, can't quite explain it but the Speedmaster seems to have 'soul' whereas by comparison the BMW now feels 'functional' if that makes sense!?

Money very well spent and will try and contribute to the forum best I can.
