Hello from New Hampshire
My name is Greg and I just bought my first Triumph this past week, a 2010 Thruxton.
I have only owned and ridden japanese street bikes in the past (Suzuki gxr 750, Yamaha R6) and I've got to say that the Thruxton is miles better than anything I've ever ridden.
Even though it isn't the fastest bike in the world, it manages to instill in the rider the same exhilaration and sensation at any speed that the ricers can only achieve with the throttle pegged or above the 100mph mark.
I have never had so much fun bombing down a twisty back road as I have on this bike!
