Well after 4 years and 2 Benelli Tre's later, I've decided it's time for a change. :bawl:

It's not that I've became disgruntled with the Benelli brand, far from it as I have never had anything serious go wrong with either of the Tornado's that I have owned, or even with the 20 year old SEI that I still have for that matter, but sometimes you just fancy a wee change.

However, I hope you guys won't mind if I still drop by the Forum every now and again just to see how you're all getting on ....you're like 'family' after all :rolleyes:

I've ordered my new bike and I'm expecting it to be delivered in the next couple of weeks or so. (I'm beginning to feel like a kid at Christmas already)

Here's a pic of it if anybody is interested :clap: :D :clap:

Now Laurence I was in Motogb earlier in the week and i saw a crate that had an LE in i think with your name on it !!, now youv'e played your cruel trick and there was me thinking you were moving to V4 Aprilia or Ducati 1098 . Wonder what other forums have thought of this Marketing ploy to bring others to a new fold and existing owners to upgrade. New shiny Bikes all round . congratulations and at least its going to the most knowledgable owner round :bow: .

Yeah, (nice try Mike) but it'll all be going back onto me new one, so nothing is looking for a new home. ;)

I must be honest though, if I knew it was going to take me so long to return it back to standard, I think I may have just kept the old one :eek:

I've always dealt with KJM and all the guys there have treated me pretty good so I've no reason to change (sorry Russ ;) )

Laurence. Are you selling the 'old' one privately (no, I don't want another one at the mo :D ), or have MotoGB taken it in px? Just curious, but if they are prepared to take them in at a decent price, it sounds like a good move - new warranty, all upgrades done etc.

Hmmm, wouldn't mind an 1130....:confused:

Cheers

Ian

Many thanks for all your comments guys.

KJM are taking my current bike in PX but I got the impression that they are not looking for anymore at the moment as they have just put their range of demonstrators on the market as well.

I did think about the 1130 Ian but just couldn't justify the extra price over the standard TRE, plus I like the original colour scheme better :eek:

Laurence. After my previous post, I looked on KJM's website, saw what they are asking for the 1130, and changed my mind :doh: . Like you I couldn't justify that difference, in fact I can't imagine many who would. Likewise, the original colour scheme is definitely better than the 1130, in my opinion. I might change my mind if they offered them at £6995, though...:clap: .

Cheers

Ian

I am the same as you guys.My Tre is over 2 years old now and i would like to change it for a 1130 but it would have to be something like £5000 to change to tempt me.The main reason i would like to change is my Tre is so noisy and annoys the hell out of me under 50mph and when we pull up anywhere i am sure everyone is thinking"Hell Thats Noisy" and not what a lovely looking bike!.
My TNT is fine and my last Tre was fine.:doh: Zebo.

I'm Loving the RS Ownership

Well just at the time when the price lowered and i thought here goes - Russ's for the last new yellow RS but oh no it sold :bawl: But with every large cloud mine had the silver lining of finding the bargain of the century and for £4*** got a new condition bike with no hang ups and although know the prices dropped dont think it worries present owners as its a permanent addition to the family. have to say the RS feels different to the normal Tre i had and god that titanium can -wow it rattles it shouts and its bloody gorgeous !!!:bow: and suppose the plate makes me happy knowing it shouts out exclusive Benelli !:clap: . Saving up now for an LE which will make me complete :) .
