Let the midlife crisis begin!

Greeting all from Lancaster, PA.

Rode for a while 10 years ago on a 79 Honda CM400T and then an 80 Honda CB650C, then sold due to transfer and service obligations. Retired now and looking to start up again. Didn't want to be "another Harley guy", and Triumph looked exciting.

Glad to see all this enthusiasm about the brand. I'm considering an American; the local dealer still has a '13 in their showroom that has the Blue/White color scheme that I like. Being a 2013 model and still hasn't sold, I think I should have some negotiating room...shouldn't the 2015 models be coming out soon??? LOL!

Last time I was in, those guys still had a 2012 Tiger Explorer sitting there. That's the one I'd try to get a deal on.

Welcome to the forum!

Let us know how your negotiations go. Some dealers are more accomodating than others. And then post photos of your new bike!

Thanks for the welcome! I pulled the trigger on the America, and am very happy so far. Got about 130 miles on it already, and it's been mine less than 48 hours. Going nice and easy since it's been quite a while since I've been up on 2 wheels. Okay, now I'm heading over to the Amer/SM threads..... Thanks again!!!
