Some Dude from Pittsburgh

I'm a 46 y/o male that for some odd reason has been infatuated with getting a motorcycle(Middle Age crisis?).

After searching high and low for a motorcycle through eBay, classified ads, etc., I found a 1995 Triumph Triple Speed on Craigslist. After taking delivery on the bike I found out that one of the previous owners "Frankensteined" the bike with a Trident gas tank, Trident seat, and wheels, along with a Daytona oil cooler. It doesn't even look like a Speed Triple. LOL!

I also found some annoying issues with the bike that the previous owner failed to pass on to me which I'd like to get taken care of, which is what brought me to your site.

Hopefully the members of this site will espouse their wisdom on a newbie not only to Triumphs but motorcycling in general.
