Cool DickyP making contact [err from London] come in please

Guys

I know you have been worried about me Wanted to let you know I am safely back in London.

I had to leave the 916 behind, which was a bit of a wrench. However I have dug out the old Ducati Monster 900 which I left in the father in laws garage.

Rode it home in pissing rain & dark round teh M25 with my Mum's cagoule on - as the kit is being shipped from Sinagapore. Fark winter is a bitch here.

Looking at a Triumph 955 Daytona or a 996 etc. The Triumph looks a bit more "comfy" for London commute and touring - but is a wee bit heavier. Anyone ever ridden one or care to proffer an opinion ?

Well I am in seriously monster culture shock as regards the biking. Will have to give my next traffic cop 50 ringgit and see if that works here too.

Don't forget to appreciate how good you've got it out there - it's bloody top dollar

See ya

I wondered....

Dicky - I wondered where you had gone!

Was it the off roading with me that we did in JB that Sunday morning?

Have ridden the old t595 Daytona - Although the triple has different characteristics from our V twins, a great bike to ride but with a similar position - weight on wrists etc. Some find the bars can be too wide. Other than that - great thrash, and more liveable to commute with I'd say than a 996

Talking Chummers me old teapot

Good to hear from you & thanks for the note on the Triumph.

The missus would definately prefer an easier ride than the Duke [no innuendo intended] and for myself a bit more flexibility on the commuting would be good.

Was going to invest today - but unfortunately the Minister for Home Affairs has put the kybosh on the plan. Got to start saving my pocket money first
