Another Newbie in Hants
« on: August 20, 2019, 07:36:27 AM »
Hi All.   Another newbie here in Hampshire, happily very close to the A272!
I've been riding motocross for years but have decided to (mainly) leave that for my kids now.  So, my first road bike is a Z1000 SX Touring. Lucky me. I think I made a very good choice. Fast enough to supply the buzz, comfortable enough for my aching bones.  I will doubtless be picking your collective brains for tyre recommendations etc. over the comings months.   In the meantime, I have managed (with remarkable success for me) to install a Quadlock wireless charging head to my satnav bracket which charges the iPhone wirelessly. So far been fantastic  - no visible cables and minimal faff!  If anyone wants to know how, I will gladly bore them to death.

Take care all,

Matt
