newb Triumph owner

Hi all.

My (real) name is Mark. I am a new Triumph owner. I got an almost new (800 miles) 2012 Thunderbird. Moved up from a Kawi Vulcan 900.
Hoping to get some good tips, and meet other like minded-folks.

SiKing.

Welcome but be careful. I have a friend who made the same move. Since then he has also bought a Sprint ST, a Trophy SE and now he's looking at a Scrambler.

No, that ain't true. I am very happy with my Speed Triple! And I will be completely content with the Rocket X I signed for. Really.

Well, and then maybe a Sprint GT for some long distance touring. And a Late 90's Thunderbird Sport for a cafe racer. Oh, and I would love to find my old Daytona 1200 SE!

*sigh*
