TDM 900 out and about

Well I’m happy enough! :grin:


Heresy! Burn the witch!

Nice bike.

Cheers (it’s a 900, but you probably wouldn’t know that) :rofl:

I can’t type properly, and you probably know that. It’s even written on the bike. :man_facepalming:

Ooh, just noticed a healthy supply of face based emotion indicators too!

There’s hundred of the litte buggers.

I had a TDM 900, and it was a great bike to ride, with a brilliant engine, really smooth at high speed, although I could never love its looks. Year by year it grew taller and heavier, though, and I replaced it with my present Street Twin. It’s also a great bike to ride, and looks good as well.


My biggest issue with it at the moment is the height for my Mrs. Having MS means it’s a very difficult Mount for her. :confused:

Sorry to hear that. Congratulations to her for still being willing to give it a go. You’ll have to get something with a seat nearer the ground, like I did. In my case it wasn’t MS, just advancing age!

Nearest I’ve got to the tdm is my TRX. I just love the engine sound and character. But it’s partly in bits


They have quite a following… meant to be great handling machines. Love the frame too (hints of Ducati)

The only downside I’ve found is that the front end feels soggy. I once knew someone who raced them and he said just ditch the forks in exchange for usd ones and it’s totally transformed bike.

My TDM handled very well on new tyres, but less so as the rear one wore and squared off.


I notice the TRX never followed the 180/17 fashion but had 160/17 instead. It still looked a wide tyre although dunno why

Slim bike :smile:

There’s a Black one up for sale in my local dealers… but I’m gonna have to replace my helmet and rain gear this year… so a “spare bike” is out! :joy:

Nice evening, bit o’ spannering needs shake down… so wandered off to Coniston water


I do like the yellow paint job on your bike.

I like the bike and that colour - it’s about time Triumph brought it back for some of their models.


I agree, there is something about yellow on bikes that stirs my inner self.


Doing a teaching session in Lancaster today… so came home the coastal route.




And a glorious day for riding it was
