    The triple is a good bike (race can,K&N,+P/C =114rwbhp~64t) saying that you do have to push it into corners not like the T , the engine has good torque then again not like the T. The 7yrs difference does show a tad. Bet a new 1050 is a bit better. Luv the T (full akro +k&n) also lots of bits added.

    Hiya snowman,I`m near chichester so not far from you (grooming alert !! ).A few of us get up Loomies, Foxes diner(now `H`s) at oxford,Boxhill,Bury hill,Portdown hill most weekends,We did a `little`260 mile run out on saturday ,Anyway, your more than welcome to come out with us idiots anytime mate. To answer Tricky`s question,I came off (literally )a 1050 speed triple and on to my 07 factory,in comparison I found the S3 like Joe Frazier, all brawn and no brain, realy got a fat midrange that is hard to beat and the 4th gear `roll on`is hard to beat, but still a fookin hoon to ride,Where as the Tuono to me is like Cassius Clay, floats like a butterfly and is a better handler alround, although for `torquey ness`(is the such a word)I dont think the `seat of the pants`can tell much difference

    Police in North Wales aren't the baddies they were when Blundstome was the Chief Inspector, The new Spec is a biker himself and has a much more tolerant attitude. Will take your details & so ling as you don't keep appearing on the radar will give benefit of tyhe doubt. I got stopped around Dollgellau, speeding with no tax. (was in the post honest Guv.) & was let off & didn't even have to produce. the officer explained the scenario to me. Got speaking to an off duty officer who was also a T owner whilst over at Griffs last week reckoned in west Mercia traffic numbers have shrunk by over 1/2 what it was a few years ago due to cuts.
