Hi from Asheville, NC

New to the forum, researching the purchase of my first Triumph. Seems like there's a lot of great info here. Anxious to get started.

Welcome wilks! Man, do you live in a beautiful city! I visited my niece and her family a few years back and was impressed by just how nice Asheville is.
Triumphs are wonderful bikes and would travel the The Smokies or the Tail of the Dragon wonderfully well.

My wife and i were just through Asheville in October.

Forget the 'Tail of the Dragon' unless you enjoy traffic jams and squids galore. Do the Blue Ridge Parkway. 480 miles of motorcycle bliss. Grandfather Mountain, Black mountain, etc. Perfect bike roads and places.

Biltmore House was pretty cool as well.
