Another SMT newby

Post by gordy » Thu May 12, 2016 6:33 pm

Hi all, got myself an SMT 6 weeks ago, a 2013 orange toy. Live in south Gloucester UK. Broke down last week with the dreaded broken ignition wire. Ball ache that was, it hasn't put me off the bike though. After coming from a line of v twins ( ducati 600ss/748/888, Aprilia rsv Mille ) I got on with bike straight away. 1st big trip in September doing the north coast 500, wouldn't want to do that on a sportsbikes.

Orite mate. I'm doing that later this year.
A gut full of ale and a head full of magic.

Welcome :)
I'm on week 2 of my SMR and loving it.
I just looked up the NC500 and it looks amazing! I think it would take me longer to get to Scotland than do the actual route though.

Thanks for the welcome guy's, we're doing the NC500 over 7 days, 1 day to get just north of Glasgow, 5 days to go round sightseeing, and a day to get home.

Sounds great. It's nearly 600 miles just to get to Inverness from Surrey (6 tanks of petrol!) So would take a while
