Pretty good other than buffering from the screen

Handling is good, not as capable as a R1150GS but fun and predictable nevertheless

Pros CommentsLovely bike, great tourer, try one and see.
Cons CommentsThe brakes. Not bad, just not quite a stable as the R1150GS. Can you guess I've owned one?

Comfort
Very comfortable. Upright riding position, wide bars make for great long stints in saddle. 230 miles through Wales mountain roads no problems.
Ride Quality
Superb engine with legendary torque and power delivery. Very easy to ride quickly. Super smooth. It is heavy until ridden. It corners well, I had to change to a heavier fork oil to stop the dive.
Build Quality & Reliability
10 year old 18000 miles- no corrosion! Winter strip down revealed no visible wear to the top end, valves all within tolerance. Everything working as it should.
Engine Rating
Too much power for a trail bike but……it's addictive engine sound when driving out of corners never fails to generate a smile.
Brake Rating
Very strong back and front with excellent feel. As stated above, heavier fork oil has made a massive difference to heavy braking.
Running Cost
Overall
Pros CommentsEngine performance, noise and great engine braking. Riding position. Build quality. It can be ridden through the forest (on forest roads) where it can be wheelied and powerslid. It can be ridden fast on the road, with enough performance to enjoy a day with friends on their road bikes. It's a Triumph as well!
Cons CommentsI'd prefer an oil level window to the dipstick.
