    Hi everyone,

    I'm a new member and have returned "home" to sweden after many years abroad, in particular the UK. I collect my new-to-me 1200X in the near future and am looking forward to a winter of upgrading and preparing her for next and subsequent summer adventures.

    Currently the bike only has 10,500km on the clock despite being a 2012MY. I'll soon add to those... My partner has wanted to ride a big bike for years and we've bought her an older 2001 TDM850 to learn and take her test on. We may very well keep it as it's a great bike for a first big bike. She'll take her test in the spring once the snow has disappeared and we have dry roads again.

    Summer 2022 plans include heading north, if possible as far as Lofoten in Norway and explore some of the amazing Norwegian coastline and Fjords.

    Looking forward to gaining more knowledge and sharing tips / tricks with the community.

    Peter

    Hello Peter and "välkommen till forumet". (Blame Google Translate if that's wrong!)

    Congrats on the imminent arrival of your CT, sounds like it'll get taken to some great places.

    TDM850 - nice bike. All it needed was a shaft drive!  :002:

    Haha yes! And Google translate did you proud  :002:

    Having toured much of Europe on my trusty Gen 1 Fazer 1000 I am looking forward to getting back onto a V4. 2023 and beyond will see us heading south & east assuming the world opens up and allows it!

    The TDM is a great bike - very underrated and to cure the chain final drive, I will install a Scottoiler over the winter, install it, fill it and forget until you need to top up the oil  :156:

    Thanks, I haven't been to Gotland (yet) but it is high on my list. First though up to the Arctic Circle to see 24-hour daylight!
