    Well today I nearly choked on my coffee as the unmistakable sound of a Tre came into earshot ..
    Chuffed to meet another Benelli addict at m&p motorcycles Swansea .
    With a superb tre 900 .
    This makes two close encounters with these rare breeds in a year now ..

    How's this then.........................

    When I went to collect my bike after having all the work done, I was pulling out the workshop when another CR pulled in, exactly the same as mine but the number plate was one digit out, common as muck these CR's we exchanged pleasantries in Spanglish both looking a bit confused.

    This old post by BigBadAl still makes me laugh. Love all the fictitious names as well

    You know these 'Tornado spotted' threads ...

    I wonder if the GSXR forums etc ever have these? Can you imagine a GSXR6 spotted in Edinburgh thread or a GSXR1000 spotted in south London thread Can you Imagine the replies?


    1 4 The Road:
    I saw a GSXR6 in Edinburgh today. Anyone on here?

    Speed freak: Yeah it was me.
    GSXRKing: No, it was me.
    BillyWhizz: You're both wrong it was me.
    Kneedownlad: If it was a blue and white one it might've been me.
    One-of-a-kind: I'm pretty sure it was me or it might've been my mate or maybe even his mate barry, he's just bought one.
    Sliderzzz: Blue and white? It was definitely me.
    Buzz_Light_Year: Are you lads sure cos I think it might've been my missus?
    K-9: If it was around tea time then it might have been me.
    Gixxerfan: I was on mine around about tea time too.
    GickserzRule: What time's tea time?
    Kant-Katch-Me: I was out all day on mine so it could've been me.
    Evil kneevil: I saw a guy looking at my bike when it was parked outside the newsagents so it might've been mine.
    GickserzRule: What newsagents?
    Blue & White Gixxer lad: I rode past a newsagents around tea time.
    Nutty Lad: I saw a guy coming out of a newsagents and getting on his gixxer when I rode past on mine. Might have been one of us.
    GickserzRule: What time's tea time?
    GickserzRule: Will someone tell me what newsagents?
    Gixxers_Make_Me_Horny: I was passing by on mine when I saw a gixxer pass a newsagents with a gixxer parked up out side around about tea time when a gixxer passed me going the other way looking at the gixxer parked outside the newsagents.
    GickserzRule: What time do you call tea time?
    Nutty Lad: 5:30
    GickserzRule: That was defo me then.
    Speed freak: You where outside the newsagents?
    GickserzRule: No, I was getting my hair cut in a barbers shop near a newsagents, but my bike was parked just up the street next to another gixxer.
    1 4 The Road: It was behind a Benelli Tornado.
    Speed freak: Wasn't me then.
    GickserzRule: Nope, not me either.
    Nutty Lad: Couldn't have been me either.
    Blue & White Gixxer lad: Count me out.
    Gixxers_Make_Me_Horny: What/\/\ he said.
    Evil kneevil: I would've remembered that if it'd been me.
    K-9: I thought they stopped making those?
    GickserzRule: What the hell is a Benelli Tornado when it's at home?

    I will add the last line you omitted.
