Greets from Switzerland

Greets from Switzerland

I've got my ct dct about 4weeks ago and made about 2000km's since then. I've "accidentally" traded in my Triumph Speedy as the bike convinced me with the technology offered. That's the first bike who has all tec gadgets and features available on today's market. However, the decision isn't an emotional one and still the same today. This bike does all the things it should do in a very perfect way and I'm sure it does his best to keep me healthy, so from that perspective a good decision. But it's a bit emotionless... and to heavy... but I like this easy driving style and the accelration with the dc out of turns kills my enemys :164: (if you do it rigth).

My home resort are the central European alps and my driving style adapts to that. I love speed, fast turns, horrible sloping, turn surfing,  fast acceleration out of the turn, hard braking maneuvers and you might find me on some passes or racetracks (with the R1) around Switzerland.

My bike history contains several Triumph Speedys, Yamaha R1, Triumph Bonneville T120 (1967), BMW 650 and some others. I'm not sure yet if I need to fill my emotion-gap with a KTM Duke 690 :156:.

nice to be here  :001:

 :400:  Syrius.

The Alps suit me down to the ground too. I love going up, and down, the passes quick. Hard braking into corners, and powering out - bliss. See you in the Alps.
