Hi from Lismore, Nthn NSW

Hi Folks - been reading the info for ages, about time I became a member. Great site, great discussion. I run a Thruxton EFI, previously had a T'bird Sports - should have kept it. I'm playing around with the Thruxton suspension (Wilbers rear shocks, Traxxion emulators and springs etc up front), spending way too much money but the bike is a keeper so why not. Won't be parting with the Thruxton - my wife bought it for me for my birthday!! Fitted the bike up with Staintune pipes - beautiful sound.

my advice... don't part with the wife either, given the information just provided, I'd say she seems like a keeper too

welcome to the fray!

Thanks guys.
Keepin' the wife and keepin' the bike. She does have a sister, an absolute bitch - my wife never wants to be like her, so that is why my wife is soooooo good to me! She's even suggetsing we ship the bike to the US and then the UK to tour, including a visit to the 2011 Isle of Man TT Races.
When I get the Wilbers on the bike I'll send in a couple of pics. Wilbers should only be a week or so away, order a few weeks ago. Traxxion gear just ordered so should be here and installed in a few weeks time. Can't wait!
