Having owned a Tornado Tre for 1 year now I have not seen another... Until today! Driving my tintop home at approx 3pm back from work in West London I pulled in hard left on the Southbound exit slip at Lightwater to let half a dozen bikes filter up the middle of the ramp... Bike 3 was a green Tornado Tre index FX03.. something; issued Lincoln 2003... Anyone on here...?

Funny, I was about to ask about the same thing, I came across it on the A322, a couple of miles North of the M3, just before it reached the roundabout with the A332. The A322 is dual carriageway and on that section there's a big gap between the two carriageways, like some 30m. I was traveling in the opposite direction so only caught a brief glimpse of the pack: Honda, KTM, Tornado and something else. Incidentally, I was on my Tornado too, so for two of them to be in the wild in close proximity, without any premeditation - well, I suppose that's something :)

Yep that was defo the same crew; all wearing small packs but no luggage on the bikes.... Probably had it DHL'd to their hotel! Tail end charlie was something quite exotic like an Agusta... Made me wish I was on their trip and not on my commute!:sick:

Ha ha, that was us on our way back from a trip to Belgium for the weekend, heading back to Oxfordshire/Gloucestershire.
Happy to report that my mates Nelli performed flawlessly all weekend, 650 miles,33C heat on the continent, mental ques at Eurotunnel, not bad for a 19 year old Italian bike👍
Other bikes in the group were my F3 800 RC, MV F4 1000R, Ducati 950 SP Hypermotard, ZX9R, Triumph 675 Daytona. No technical gremlins on any of them👍👍
Few aches and pains the next day though……😉

I thought I saw a Tornado going the other way…..👍

Goodness me, that sounds like a statistics exam question: "Calculate the probability of the tour happening with no technical mishaps" ;) Glad it worked out fine for you all :) 👍
