Greetings from Vermont

Expecting a foot of snow tonight, haven't seen zero centigrade in weeks, but the '72 Daytona is warm in the cellar and getting her winter TLC. I'll be looking for advice for a few things.

Thanks for the quick welcome, Catenaccio. I have followed this site for a few months as an outsider and learned a lot. It's nice to connect with a community of Triumph people. I got bitten in the late 1950's due to some motorcycle owning juvenile delinquents in the neighborhood, and have never gotten over it. I had a Tiger Cub in college in the mid-60's, a 3T when I lived in England in '68, but the one that got away was a 1966 Tiger T100 that after putting down a deposit I could not afford because of tuition, living expenses, etc. When the chance came up to get a Daytona a couple of years ago, I decided it was now or never. It turned out to be a beauty. I have rebuilt the carbs and electrical system, removed the head to replace faulty O-rings at the top of the pushrod tubes that were spewing oil all over the fins, and it is now running like, well, like a Tiger. 10,500 original miles. My life is complete. I know I still have a lot to learn.

Welcome Rostefo! Greetings from snow covered CT.

Where in VT are you?

You and Ropeferry should plan on attending the Bennington(VT) Triumph Bash the first weekend in June.

Regards,

Went last year, had a totally great time. Wish I could remember all the names of the people I met.
