Question Noob from Texas.

I'm new to Triumphs, but not to motorcycles. I raced motocross for six years and bought my Harley three months ago. I have really enjoyed my first rode bike and I ride A LOT, unlike most Harley "riders" that have garage queens and never wear protective gear. I have only one problem with my current ride... I'm grinding my pegs and frame in the corners and want a better handling bike. I really like the look and feel of the Thruxton but have not had a chance to test ride one yet. Any tips or advise for a new guy to the cafe racer scene?

welcome fellow Texan.

why not wait for the new Trophy and get the best of both worlds; a bike than can lean W A Y over and still be comfy for long trips; then you won't need the Harley at all.

Welcome jarhead. Most Triumph dealers will let you test ride their bikes but get ready to pony up, you're gonna want one. Ooo Rah!
