    Replaced the Tiger 1050 with this

    As some of you may know, I had a Tiger 1050 which I recently sold. This was my 'go to' bike for riding as it so comfortable and easy to rack up the miles.

    Anyway, just replaced it with this 2014 XT1200ZE.
    It's got all the farkles you'd want and has had the ECU remapped.
    One owner, FSH, new tyres, just been serviced.
    Picking it up on Monday.

    Yes indeed, the one on eBay at Norwich. Bit of a trek but called in to see one at a dealers at Grantham first. That one was 250 less than I paid for the one from Norwich, but had no extras and the dealer was an arse...
    I've test ridden the S10 a few times lately and liked it. (And the fact it's not a Beemer GS..).
    It's also had the suspension lowered by 15mm, and has custom seats - so I can get my feet flat on the floor as opposed to tippy toes. The chap I've bought it from is six inches shorter than me so he can only get one foot on the floor..

    There's nothing wrong with the Beemer GS, its just the riders that are a bit of an arse
    Just when you thought you had made it idiot proof.... along comes a higher class of idiot!

    Don't get me wrong, I love the GS and I know you have your monster Adventure and love it.
    However, the fact that they are very common makes me not want one and the newer ones are not as reliable as the older ones.

    But true.
    In my (our) defence, the Rex isn't very common though.

    Indeed, mega mile muncher - and I love the miles. Sadly the Rex is hardly ridden and when I do it makes my old bones hurt...
