Ahhh another Trumpet owner. Those Triples aint arf good eh? Stonking motors.
Travelled to South of France on the Daytona a couple of years back, no problems at all.
Last year went to Italy on the Tiger, bit more comfort and 3 cheers for heated grips. Only bugger was slightly warped front discs and back pads worn down; I put it down to pillion, loaded up panniers and top box. Heavy braking over various mountain passes in Switzerland.
