    Thinking to hang it up after many years, I was talked into riding a "Triumph". I was drawn to the classic simplicity of the Speed Twin - no yellow suspension but gaiters! Agile and powerful, it handled small leaving just the road in front of me. I bought it immediately after riding it. I have...
  2. Speed Twin & Scrambler 1200 - Lessons learned from owners?

    Water Cooled Twins Talk
    Hi all, Following a recent test-ride which truly floored me I'm now toying with selling on my EFI T100 and going for a Speed Twin, or possibly a Scrambler 1200.

    Hello everyone. Picked up my new Speed Twin last week and absolutely loving it. After 2 years with a 1200GS the ST is a revelation - so much more fun. Just booked it in for its 1st service next week - it's going to be difficult to keep the mileage below 500 before then :smile2:

    Hi all, Just a long time lurker here, with a new bike haha. Started off with a 2006 Bonnie Black and tinkered around with a few mods on it. Always wanted a Thruxton but my back never agreed with riding for long period of time on any of those test rides. Almost picked up a T120 last year for...

    Hello everyone, I've lurked on this forum for awhile. Apologies for typos. I supposed I'll keep it short and sweet. I just picked up my Speed Twin a few weeks ago, and I am truly in love. A few things here and there I plan to change, but nothing major. I've owned several different bikes and...
