Welcome Tony
Try the T700 and report back what you think they're a very good bike there's a healthy discussion goin on in here :- viewtopic.php?f=23&t=50135&sid=c8c3db8f ... 54821b2ed5 , mine's in for service this week :D means I get to ride it for a few miles.

Why not tell the inmates here what sort of riding you're into or planning (tours, green lanes, rallies) they like that sort of thing, don't worry they don't bite - often :lol:

Welcome aboard from Stroud. I like Harrogate, it's a nice place.
And now, Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.

Welcome from Holmfirth Tony,
