This is my "initiation" post, I suppose. I want to avail myself of the resources here as well as maybe one day actually contribute something. This was brought on by the purchase yesterday (4-10-2010) of a leftover black 2009 Speed Triple from the local Triumph-Honda-Kawasaki-Yamaha dealer. They gave me a bit over average retail for my 2004 Yamaha FZ1 that I also bought there in 2005. I couldn't turn down the deal, as the Triple had nearly every optional accessory available already installed the way it sat on the floor.
It has proven to be an absolute blast to ride for the last day or so. I'm looking forward to much more of the same as well as to learning as much as I can absorb from the forum.
Thanks for allowing me in.
