Finally- 2013 Black Thruxton.

So I've been on a list for a Black Thrux since June of this year. I finally get a call Friday on my cell that they got them in. I was like a kid sitting under the Christmas tree at work. I went down Saturday to pick her up. I wish I could say the ride back home was surreal, but I was met with rain, darkness(tinted visor) cold wind, and a crap load of traffic!

The next day I got up early and drove to a local coffee house and took it all in. I started looking for parts on my cell thanks to their free wifi.

Here are some pics

Pretty cool that you were there for the un-crating. As for mods: AI marble trick, then FEK, then mufflers + map, then mirrors, then...

Just going by the arsenal hanging from the wall, I'm not saying anything about mods and just slowly backing out of the room...

This used to be a Motorcycle Room. I had two bikes and gear in here. I Sold my bikes about two years ago and turned it into a Gun room with a table. I now have the Thrux in here too. Just barley fits.
