New to Triumph

Bonjour toute le monde,
Hi everyone. I due to health problems have had to sell my Harley Roadking, it became to heavy and I almost fell out of love with it. I struggled to come to terms with selling it. I was not ready to give up motorcycling completly. I looked around and found what I think is a beautiful Sprint 955i RS 2004 model, completly standard and well looked after. I bought it and a friend helped me trailer it home. All the paperwork was sorted, I live in France and they do love paperwork.
Came my first ride on it WOW WOW WOW. I had previously only ridden Harleys so this was a culture shock for me. Now I love the way of life a harley gave me, but, for sheer excitement The Sprint excels.
I now have got to get accustomed to good brakes good handling good drive train etc etc. I am loving evry second. I have changed the exhaust for a race can, ater all I am used to noisey bikes.

I have been used to my Victory Hammer, so this is a change for me. I like the contrast!
