Unreconstructed Southerner in occupied Georgia

« on: June 01, 2020, 11:36:22 PM »

Hello

I bought a 2009 TMax new in 2009 and sold it in 2012 to try the new Honda NC700x.  After a couple of years trying to like it, I admitted my mistake and started searching for another TMax.  I found another 2009 with few miles on it in Freeport, IL and bought it.



Since my main interest is long distance riding, I installed a top box and the leather Russell seat that I had on the first TMax.



I don't need to be reminded that both additions are ugly.  That is unfortunate, but for a mile-eater the Russell is heaven and the box is useful in it's daily role as an errand bike.  On long trips, the box is replaced by an even uglier RotoPax fuel container and a seat bag.  The bike needs some maintenance before I put it on a long trip.  This one has TMax Fever like the last one did.  I have the fuel pump and will change it out soon along with a belt and an upgrade to the variator.  Possibly the final adds are a GPS mount and this tubular handlebar adapter with some properly shaped bars.



I hope to have all this done in time to make the trip to Harrison, Arkansas in September.  THe TMax shares a kennel with two Honda ST1100's, a BMW K1100RS, and a Triumph 900 Scrambler.

Cheers - Lee

Welcome from Alabama.
Don't know if you remember, but I went on a ride with you in North Georgia when I had my first TMax.  We ended up at a dealership that no longer exists that sold the more exotic brands.
