Hello, glad to finally join...
I currently live in Maryland (military).
I'm a long time motorcycle and car enthusiast. My first bike was an Indian 50 with training wheels when I was 5 years old. My brother and dad raced and continue to race flat track (dad is 65). I've been around and on MCs for 30 years. I don't usually follow trends and like just about all motorcycles. Some of my past bikes were several Japanese super sports, a Ducati Monster S4R, and one of my favorites; a Buell XB12S. To me, they're all works of art and each type of MC has a purpose for which is was built.
I currently have a custom Triumph bobber with a 1971 T120R mill and now a 2010 Thruxton on order for daily riding, twisties, and the occasional 2-up ride with the wife (the new ergos are actually comfortable, especially compared to the hard tailed, kick only, 7-plate clutch bobber :-)).
I rode the Thruxton at a demo day and fell for it. Now I'm still explaining to the wife why I need two bikes. Heck, I'm just gettin' started!...
The bobber. Black and gold 2010 Thrux on the way!
