Talking Joined Club Cafe a couple weeks ago!

Hello everyone.

I'm from Los Angeles, but I'm living up in San Jose at the moment. Been riding for almost 10 years now, on everything from dirt to enduro to sport to classic. I joined the forum a long time ago because I fell in love with the Thruxton the first time I saw it. I just wanted to read up on it more, and really get to know everything about it before I actually pulled the trigger.

Well that time finally came a couple weeks ago. Went out with a buddy to my local dealer, and rode away grinning like an idiot on a 2014 black Thrux. She's a beauty, but still 100% stock. I've been compiling a full list of mods I'm planning on doing with the help from this forum.

Pics coming soon. And I'll definitely be posting more as I start wrenching!

It's great to be here. This forum seems like a helpful community.

Enjoy the road,
Tyderium

Thank you Alice. The speedo tops at 130 mph I believe, but most people are able to get about 120 mph.
