I live about 15 minutes from Owen O'Learys. The BIA has their last ride of the season this Sunday but I will try to swing by. If for some reason I don't make it please keep me informed as to the topics discussed.
Thanks Charlie

I was also unable to make the meeting but please add me to the member list.

I've made some lasting friendships from the Stormtrooper forum, from when I was a Vstrom owner and have been doing campouts with them for several years. I'd love to put together one for Triumph owners interested in camping in VT and exploring that beautiful state and it's well graded dirt roads, in the hopes that it can become an annual event.

I'm the new guy. I'm from Ayer MA
Most of my rides are to Southern NH, but I also like Littleton, Harvard, Bolton, Lancaster, Sterling, heading up to Mount Wachusett. Back roads out to Turner Falls are fun too. I like the North Shore (Ipswich, Gloucester, etc), but I avoid highways, so there is a bunch or urban riding between here and there.

I'm retired, so I get to ride all week, after rush hour commuters are at their desks, and I have the roads to myself. Life is good.

Iím in Hopkinton too. Iíll keep an eye out for you. Had the bike two years but just joined up on here. Moved to MA with a Honda 919 8 years ago and sold it that summer. Nice to be back into it. My brother got a 2015 Newchurch, and I got almost the same bike but in blue 6 months later from the same dealer.

Ayer, MA.

Struggling to convert from right-toe shifting to the stupid, government-mandated (1965) left toe shifting on my '18 Bonneville T120

Glad I kept my '74 (bought it new 45 years ago) Norton Commando.

May need to give the Bonneville to my daughter and go back to kick-starting the Norton.

I don't believe it was 1965 for the switch because my '73 T140 Bonneville 750 had the right hand shift. My '75 T160 Trident had it on the left.

You should try harder to get accustomed to the change, as that '18 Bonneville T120 has a LOT going for it!

About to take delivery on a T120, wondering what other MA/NH RAT's do for dealer service. Nearest dealers to me are in Gill, MA and Pembroke, NH, any other options I'm missing?

I think Cycles 128 in Beverley is a Triumph dealer.

Never dealt with them, so I can't endorse or bad mouth them, but I believe they're still a Triumph dealer.

Thanks. Another 1:30 ride to get there, but nice to see another potential option. Seems I've triangulated in the farthest spot from them all.
