New from NH

Well it's been about 32 yrs since I sold my Bonni that I got in H.S. College was all riding enduro's and trail rides with the crew. I have always had a bike or two kicking around and in 06 I got a hold of a wrecked 05 SV650, rebuilt in and have been putting about 4,500 miles a year on it and my 95 SECA 600, it has 39,000+ on it. There is a dr250 in the barn that needs a full re-do when I get some extra cash.

But the reason I'm here is I came across a 2002 Speed triple last week with 4,800 miles on it and at a price I could not pass up. The bike was down but you can hardly tell! Bent bars and broken mirrors plus a few scrapes on the lower case's. Called Triumph and talked to Peter? about some recalls (3) and the bikes in the truck and headed there tomorrow to take care of those, the rest I'll do my self. Rear brake is to tight and I'll take care of that and an oil change when they are done with it.

I ride in VT a lot because no one bothers you, NH has to many small town police that seem to pull you over if your on a bike doing 5 over.

Can't wait to take the S3 out and see what its like compared to the SV........ I'm told that it's very different and comfortable..... Need to find someone to help me set the SAG etc...

Hope to ride with some of you this year.
