Hi from sunny Essex!

Hi everyone

In a fit of madness I decided to take up riding again after a two year sabatical. Gone are the sports bikes and picked up my 2019 T100 in June. It's a beautiful bike and 400 miles in am enjoying being on the road listening to the subtle thump of the twin. I've started fiddling with it already, I forgot what and expensive hobby this can be.

I've been riding since 2003, started off on the 03 SV650S and discovered twins, but then went the inline 4 root for the next few bikes, loved trackdays but the joints aren't what they were. Looking to enjoy road riding rather than chase speed and I think I've found a good partner in the T100.

Hope I can add to the forum and will probably be asking lots of questions Decent tyres are my first thought OK, will do a thread search before I get told off
