Thanks for the advice; but I stand firm in my belief that the T3 is too fat for her suspenders and her frame. Still there's usually a place for a chubby tart in the line up - eh?

Oh bugger! I thought it was just me that couldn't let go. Bought my '95 Trident 900 in August that year brand new (bye bye little Laverda Montjuic), and yes, it still lives in my shed with 48,000 miles under its wheels. Just can't think of any good reason to sell it. Does everything I want it to so why bother? What would I replace it with? Would I survive the wrath of "she who must be obeyed" if I were to try (she loves it too!).
Scarily enough though, it lives alongside a 2002 Daytona Centennial that I bought new in November '02, so perhaps it is me after all. Maybe I need help?! NURSE, THE SCREENS!!!!!!!!!! Aaaaaagh!!!! Too late!

Cant match ya with a T3, got a 97 Buell S1 that has been with me since early '00. Its a keeper! My '02 Trophy is destined to be a long term keeper also.

I bought my Orange T3 in Feb 95 and I still have it. I bought the Black 95 in Jul 98. The T3 is still the bike that puts a smile on my face.

I collected my '94 model year green Sprint in December 93. I still have it and ride it regularly until recently because it's undergoing refurbishment.

You Brits have home field advantage. I don't think they were available in the states until mid 94.

I thought Canada got 'em in '94 and they didn't get to the US 'til '95.
