    Just a quick note to introduce myself as not done the forum thing before, have just bought a 2019 S1000xr triple black. I have been on a Africa Twin for the past 2 years and found it ok, then the frame started to rust away in front of me and Honda would do nothing to help? So sold it and said I would not buy another Honda again. Have had various bikes over the years but as I’m now 55 yrs old comfort is ahead of speed on my list, then someone told me about the S1000xr and I found I could have both. Not getting the bike till the weekend so will get back to you on how it goes. Live down in Dorset on the south coast and my aim is to try and get all over the uk in the next 12 months. Will be nice to be able to keep up with my kid again.

    Welcome Foody7, Dorset is a great area for riding with some lovely roads. Being local I do a lot of my riding round that way.

    G'day Foody7... welcome to the forum!
    Lived and worked down your way when I was 18-20 (so only a few years ago!  :164:) at the Chewton Glen Hotel...
    Enjoy the bike, it's a lot of fun  :028:
