Chaps,

I have been looking into getting a TDM as something comfy and so that my girlfriend is less scared that on sportsbikes so we can actually use a bike for going places on.

I aimlessly used streetview on a road in northern Italy picked totally at random, just to have a nose around and this is what I was presented with:



The view was actually to the left but I could see one of the bikes in the corner of the image, and rotated the view to see the rest of them. Slightly freaky as I was just reading some reviews on the TDM and was thinking about if I should look any further or not!

Is someone trying to tell me something? blink.gif

Are the bikes with yellow plates from Netherlands? Is there a Netherlands TDM club that might be interested?

Tried my girlfriend on the back of a tdm today, she is only small but still said it was cramped and didn't find it comfy. Footpegs well positioned though.

I'm fighting a losing battle!

It would be a shame to get rid of her, but if she don't like the TDM its probably for the best. unsure.gif

One or two join in now and again on Carpe, but I've dropped a line.

I posted it on the TDM-TRX side and the 3 Dutch guy's are member of the Dutch TDM-TRX forum.
See Link TDm-TRX site here

The 4e TDM seems to be from a AlemaniŽr who is unknown so far, maybe he will read this who knows.
