The wife after owning a GSX650F for 10 years has been persuaded to move to Triumph and this weekend agreed to pick up her 800XRX this Friday  :002:

Will have to see if I can borrow it to see how it compares :007:

My "record" commute was 18.1 miles in 17.5 minutes (mixed roads) on my old T800, Google reckons 30 mins, never got close on the 1050 Sport, or the Explorer, so there's your, err, benchmark  :008:
I'll never be old enough to know better !

It'll be interesting to see how it compares, although I'm a lazy sod so the thought of looking after one of those what's it?????  Oh yeah "a chain" would be enough to stop me switching  :008: :008:

Best of luck with the new bike. It seems highly unlikely that the second head gasket was defective, so it would have been good to know what the underlying problem really is.

Still searching for my towel. Too many Pan Galactic Gargleblasters.
