first in the welcome center, now here. The recommondation for this forum came from the german thruxton-forum.
My name is DéDé wich is the short french version for André. (salut mes amis francais) I have some roots there and this is my favourite country for riding in Europe.
Since 1985 I´m riding Harleys, in 1981 I had already a Triumph Bonneville.
This year I bought a used 790 carburetor Bonnie and I already worked a little bit on it to get my personal style on this bike.
I´m trying to do all mechanical stuff myself and I appreciate technical conversation and advice. (jetting achievement in progress)
I usually ride Harleys, I have those bikes for a long time and I have riding experience also in the USA(Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California etc.)
Harley riders mentality is changing a lot the last years, this is one of the reasons I went back to Triumph, but shure I´ll keep my Harleys (Street Bob and Sportster)
Beside riding classik bikes I´m playing guitar and do a lot of stuff concerning radio controlled Helicopters an large scale cars
This is my youtube channel, where you can see my Bonneville and a lot other bikes.
well i had a tiger 885 for over 10 years and loved her,she clocked up over 67,000 miles,but she has gone now and i have bought myself a speedmaster 865 on a 2006 plate,big change,so i am here to say hello and hopefully get some info on all things triumph twin.
1. should it make a big clunk when going into first gear ?,
2. and are all gear changes noisey.
3. also i have a lot of play in the drive ,if i put it in first gear and try to turn the rear wheel,it will move quite a long way before stopping,is this normal ?
i hope to post as much as i did in the tiger forum
i enjoyed the banter and info on there.
