New Guy from Canada/Ireland
« on: June 15, 2017, 03:10:15 pm »
Hello All,

Proud owner of a used Super Ten for touring Europe.

Been around motorcycles for fifty years - yikes! time flies when you're having fun - starting with a 1966 Yamaha Big Bear Scrambler 250 that I bought used in 1967. So it's come full circle with my Yamaha XT1200ZE. The intervening years saw me in Triumph 500's (several, one was a hack), a Honda Transalp, Ducati 900SSSP, and, currently, a 1990 R100GS. Not exactly a one-brand guy.

I'll probably have a bunch of questions, mostly about touring Europe two-up. SWMBO and I will be heading out around the middle of September.
Cheers,
March

congrats on your new ride, Quickmarch, with a simple hello.....
comments with substance will be chastised by soulless pub riders lacking intellect and imagination...
while calling out princess trolls will be met with the monomaniacal pruning shears of snowflake censorship.....

Hello All,

Welcome aboard!!,

Wow, my first was a 1967 Yamaha Big Bear Scrambler 305, bought used in 1968.  Loved that bike - once you learn how two-strokes need to rev!!!!

Congrats on the Tenere!!
