Long time Triumph owner. First time Tiger owner.
« on: 31 October, 2018, 03:21:35 PM »
Hi all,
Had a few Triumphs over the years ( fell in love with that triple motor), and recently test rode a new sport. So glad I did! Ended up buying new.
This will be a forever bike for the wife and I so mods will be happening.
This looks like the perfect place to share our endeavours and my first time on a forum

Cheers!

Well done mate, the correct colour too!

Englands a big place, you a Southern Softy (Like me) or a Northern Nancy like a few others.

Oh yeah, see the mods have started already, unless Triumph are now fitting Fender extenders

Berkshire born and bred. Should be moving to Northumberland in a year or two though.
Bikes are my only transport so I guess I'm gonna have to get used to getting cold up there!

 :405: and enjoy the new ride. And winter in sunny Berkshire while you can, because you'll soon be in the market for a 4x4!  :005:

And maybe language lessons as well, if you've heard the real original Northumbrian speakers (though you won't find them in the cities) .....

Beautiful bike Della. Not approved for us colonially deviant US runaways though....

During the last rugby world cup, I spent hours drinking and joking with some of the finest people I've ever met, without understanding one word of what they said. It seemed to make no difference as long as we all had another pint and banded together against whomever was most south and winning...
