Hi all,

I'm new here but not new to Triumphs. I've been involved with bikes nearly all my 45 years and can say I worked for Triumph Motorcycles in Hinckley, before setting my own business up working with Triumph's
I used to race but retired a few years ago and now just help various teams out.
My bike is a tricked out Daytona 675 which was recently on the Triumph Live Custom Bikes Stand. Being in the business I just can't help changing things on her. I will post pics soon in the Gallery.

Drinks on me and look forward to getting to know many of you.

Si

Hi Si! What did you do at the factory! Welcome to the site!




I won't stop riding because you tell me about someone who died in an accident, just as I won't stop eating because someone died of e.coli.

Yes indeed, I was in The Plough last night listening to "Junction" thrash out some awesome tunes.

Hey Guys, we could have a local meet. I'm in the Derby.

Welcome to the forum.

Like Gary the no-trash Cougar says, 'Give a larbage, throw out your garbage.' Spread the word.
