Right, I'll introduce myself.

My name is Gareth, and I live in Bristol UK. After 6 years on a ZX6R, I've recently traded it for a TDM900. It is a very clean & nice standard example from 2003 with only 8K miles on the clock. I think it has never seen rain in its life.

The reason for changing from sports to tour are many but the main one being that I need something a bit more comfortable for some touring this summer in the French Alps. The wife seems much happier so now we can go further than 1/2 hrs ride.....

I must say I'm still getting used to the differences, never known the existence of torque!

I hope you guys can help me with some good snippets of knowledge, I'll post my first question soon.

Cheers
Gareth

One is Evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies, and ego.
The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humilty, kindness, empathy and truth.
The boy thought a while then asked "Which Wolf wins?"

Hi

I didn't know about this thread wink.gif

My name is Jacek and I live in Poland. Currently I'm riding a '94 TDM. Previously I was riding XR250 and GSX 600F.

TDM is the motorcycle that is perfect for me at the moment smile.gif Hope it will be with me for a long time smile.gif

(I don't know english well, so I hope you will understand what I'm writing smile.gif )

Hello Jacek, and welcome. Your English is very good, so don't apologise.

Are you also a member of the Polish "TDM Zone"? Others please note - the site has an English page drinks.gif good.gif

What's your location? Feel free to add your pin to the Carpe map.

Do you have pictures of your bike, touring in Poland etc. - maybe even as possibilities for our 2013 calendar? (See the thread for that).
