Hello from Canada

Just bought my first Triumph, a 2000 legend. Now I am waiting for the snow to go.

I'm from New Hampshire and am watching it get deeper.... ;(

I spend a lot of time in Montebello Quebec in the summer. Maybe I'll pass you on the Trans Can someday.

PS: you will love Triumph RAT. Great, witty, guys who will help you with anything. It is an unlimited resource.

Thanks for the nice welcome! I live in Northern Ontario at the center of the Great Lakes. I bought the bike in the United States and picked it up last weekend in an enclosed trailer. This looks like a great site. I found it as I was looking for info on how to change the gear shifter shaft. Mine was broken when I bought the bike. Looks like a common problem with this model. I am going to change it this winter, so I am ready for the Spring. I also want to change the rear shock and spring as the spring is very soft and has no dampening. The bike has 10000 miles on it and otherwise is in great shape.
