    I'm not sure it's a secret I think that its more like there's nothing out there new that's as good, dare I say it even the v4 has its haters! And for the money the T is head and shoulders above the Trumpet.
    I can't see any bike old or new that takes my fancy I can't see me changing for a very long time yet

    They have a back brake too ? I thought that was just a toe rest as it doesn't seem to do anything

    To be fair,its a far better write up than the one in RIDE last month.
    Mebbe,I came across as a bit harsh,...what I meant was,there was nothing new in the article that could'nt be found on this forum or any of the others.(TW,AF1,etc)

    Last year, the guy at the MOT said my back brake was a bit poor.

    This year, after not doing anything to remedy it, the same MOT tester did not comment.

    Its obviously fixed itself.

    I know it sounds daft, especially when they don't work to start with but if yer keep using it yer will get a bit of braking effect from it.

    I got my T in March, and didn't realise it had a back brake; but really appreciate the "toe rest" on those long rides.

    I'm shocked MCN give it a fair write up, they usually speak absolute rubbish about most bikes just compare their reviews to readers reviews!!!!
