Hey all,

I'm a new rider, just having passed my MSS course in May of this year. After getting a very bad vibe from the Harley dealers in my area (Yonkers, NY) I discovered Triumph.

I recently picked up a new '09 Speedmaster EFI (black, short TORS, solo seat, dresser bar) from a dealer in Connecticut. Absolutely in love with the bike, couldn't be happier.

I'm happy to be here, love the forums and the Triumph camaraderie.

See you out there!

I'm a new member and new rider. I recently bought an 08 America. I'm about to change the stock pipes out for the TOR Long Straight cuts or the Reverse Cones.

We'll see...

New to the Forum

New to the Forum and Triumph (did have a late 60's Norton 750 Commando as a trasher). Most recent bike was a 1989 850 KW Vulcan. Thought I'd give the America a spin to get back into ring. Wanted something that not everyone else has.

Just east of San Antonio, TX, I plan on a lot of "Hill Country" riding just north of my position. I've had the bike for about a month now and have been enjoying the ride. Of course, I might be enjoying the ride better once the temps get below 100 degrees F. At these temps you don't want to stop often or leave your seat exposed for too long.

Hey folks back on road after a 20 year spell - riding an 09 Speedy. This forum looks sensational.

Cheers Gidders

Hi, all. Been here a while, posted a few times. I ride an '08 America. Returned to riding last year after 25 years away. Oh, the time I wasted. It's good to see the activity in this forum.

Hello boys and girls.
I have just discovered this new chat area for SMs and TBA owners. Great to see it back again. I will once again be a regular visitor to this site. Lost interest when the last dedicated page for these bikes was discontinued.
