Finally got a Triumph!

I've been a long time lurker, but yesterday I finally bought my 2014 Bonneville. It took forever, what with raising kids and constantly going back to school, during which I would drool over pictures and pore through all the info I could find. This is my first motorcycle ever and I feel like a little kid again when I ride it. I intend to ride to work most days, should be fine here in Sacramento, California. Eventually I'm looking forward to long trips; my parents in Wyoming, my brother in Indiana, and camping all over. Anyhoo, see all ya'all around!

It's never too late! Be careful and take the MSF Basic Rider if you haven't already.

I took the course last year, it was excellent. After 3-6 months I'm taking a refresher class. I reread guides and regulations plus watch endless how-to videos. It's all about using my obsessiveness to maximize safety. :-)
