I love these bikes. I am actually looking at one on saturday. I have wanted one since I was a kid. Always been interested in odd ball machines!

Is that a 2 into one Leo Vince system or replacement of standard mufflers each side. I've got a 2:1 but its a bit too noisy over about 5000rpm. I wondered whether repacking the muffler night help.

Couple of wee rides round the block with the G/F this week. She rides at a pace which allows me to see the scenery & take photos.

Very nice ride, thanks for the pic's.

I find it interesting that Europe, with graduated licenses, gets relatively bigger twins, while the US, which has never shown much interest in "small" bikes, gets 500's (Honda) and 650's (Kaw).....I really think that if they imported more oddball sizes, ie bigger than 600, but less than full on open class, that they'd sell well.......m'eh what do i know though, I'm just a cheapass sonofaB that buys used bikes........

T'is funny you should say that. In Y'erp there are a raft of regulations & legalities to be obeyed when it comes to owning a bike. The TDM was a top seller for many years & was usurped by the Yamaha Fazer. Journey man bikes. Relatively cheap to buy & run, average power to weight, not high on the theft list but will do anything including embarrass exotica with a decent rider.
Not the coolest thing on the road but they age very, very well. And like a good woman they are always up for a ride & put a smile on your face even if it's raining.

No offence intended to those who cannot accept gender nuances, prefer talking about sexuality rather than partaking and think goldfish are the ultimate pet.
