Hello from MA!

Hey everyone! I am new here. Let me tell you about myself first.
I joined this forum because i found a nice 00 triumph legend for sale.
I want it soo bad, it looks really nice, and the vids i saw about it, make it even nicer.
This will be my first real motorcycle. I have a 50cc scooter, and that's it. I want something more powerful and faster.

Catch you guys later!

Hi and welcome to the forum.
Good luck with the legend,
I hope it works out for you.
Your only problem will be waiting for warmer weather to ride it.
Keep us posted on how it goes.

Cheers, Mano

Check for recalls. Both my Triumphs required fuel connector replacements done as part of a recall campaign. How old is the battery? What condition are the tires in?
How 'bout the title? Is it clean and clear?

ok. thanks for the info.
ill ask for any recalls, battery. the tires have about 85% tread left...they are not that worn. Title is clean and clear, but ill have to double check on that.

I was in western mass today. Talk about crappy weather! Go for it! It will be a blast. If you buy a new car you'll loose more than $2,000 before you turn the key!
