New Triumph owner

Hi all, recently picked up my first Triumph after a string of old and older Japbikes. My 2002 TT600 looks like it may well have been someone's ex-trackbike, or at least it has been thrashed a little, but it starts willingly and I'm told the "noise" is actually "character". I look forward to getting some maintenance taken care of - check valves, chain, oil, and run an eye over everything else - shaking it down, and hopefully making it to some track days in the Southeast in 2011 in the midst of my auto racing. I'm already searching the classifieds for odds and ends.

Happy to be here.

Thanks, I have to admit the purchase was nearly an impulse buy, though I did some quick research after seeing the ad a few weeks ago (CL, not here). I was in the general market for a 600 and the TT seems like a nice balance of usable performance and comfort.

I actually don't remember exactly why I registered back in 2008, as I hadn't gotten serious about buying a newer (<10yr) bike until just a few months ago. Probably wanted to see a pic during one of my random web searches. Oh well, it was a surprise when I went to register again a few weeks ago!

Once I get moving on the maintenance, I'm sure I will!
