Long time since i've been on the forum, got clipped in jan 2014 which totaled my 2001 ninja 500. Been rebuilding the finances since then and finally pulled the trigger last week.

Was originally going to pick up a Yamaha FZ-07. Looked at it and didn't really like the feel, seemed a lot of corners were cut to get the price down. looked at the Triumph and was sold instantly. Every little thing off about the yamaha was perfect on the Triumph.

Long story short, fudge ya boys, i'm back to two wheels of freedom. Loving life and can't wait to get out to some bike nights and group rides.

Looking forward to being back in the two wheels crew. been too long. Pic is attached for those interested, waited an extra week to get the black version.

WB and nice bike :1: I had the same experience when I bought my Triumph. Had a Yamaha FZ6 (good bike) until I rode a Triumph. Traded the Yamaha in the next day.

Hard to beat quality :49:

Thanks for the love boys. Got my plates in the mail yesterday. Now just need a tail tidy and bar mirrors and i'll be good to go.

looking forward to joining some rides and bike nights.
