Starting a small adventure (West Midlands)

Post by alanscout » Mon Jul 02, 2018 12:15 pm

Afternoon all,

I've been on L Plates for some time now - never really got the bug to go bigger, if that makes sense. My last bike was a YBR 125 Custom, happily pootling along quietly, but some scrote stole it and vandalised it. So I'm picking up the Sinnis Terrain tomorrow, as it kind of ticks all the boxes I want from a 125 (big profile, some luggage space and seems to have good fuel efficiency).

Hoping to lurk and maybe ask some questions as I get to know the bike a bit better, so yeah, Hello!

Welcome from Bristol.
The Sinnis seems like a really good bike for adventures (as is any bike really) but luggage looks good too.
I’m usually off on some sort of adventure on my XR125L and have done multiple 1000 mile adventures across France, so it’s very easy and fun to do on a 125!

Welcome aboard from Sunny Somerset :)

Plenty of small bike adventurers on here. My 250 and I just got back from Germany and she never missed a beat.

Cheers
