New member - old Thundercat owner

Post  MichaelS on Wed Aug 01 2018, 08:46

Hi everybody,

So I've had my Thundercat for 10 years, it came from the USA and was bizarrely built in 2006.

I'm currently in Lancashire and will soon be moving to Southern Portugal, I hope come back for the bike and ride it there.  I know that everyone says how comfy they are but when you're 6 foot and middle aged they still get to your shoulders.



Cheers

Michael

Hi, welcome. They were sold in the US longer than in Europe. Neither of my two Thundercats were UK spec, the first was for the Benelux region and the second for Germany. Lets hope you can get the bike over to Portugal.

Have you thought about bar raisers, that may help your shoulders a bit?

Hi Steve,

I have thought about risers, my pal did it on an SV1000 with great success, but the truth is that I can't bring myself to do it to the Thundercat.
If I stop every hour or so for a few minutes I can cope, plus unfortunately a lot of the trip will have to be motorways but the wind helps to take the weight off the shoulders.
Once there I'll likely be riding a small off-road bike as the surrounding area has small very windy and very bad roads, and keep the Thundercat for longer trips.

Looking good Michael.

It's a bit hotter in Portugal than Yorkshire.
Must be one of the newest cats here.
Hope the move goes well.

Cheers
