Hi fellow riders

I'm from South Africa and purchased my first Triumph 2006 Speedy last week.

At age 55, the time has come to let go of my superbike and join the cruiser family.

When I first took her for her "fitness test", I felt so at ease with the relaxable and laid back ride she offered, that I instantly fell for her.

This is definitely a new kind of breed and a ride of it's own, compare to my "crouch rocket", the Yamaha R1.

Thank's for accepting me as part of your pack.

Best regards

Welcome Panna. I'd be willing to take the R1 off your hands for a small fee.. You won't be disappointed by the Speed Trip. Nice to have you here.

Welcome Panna! I too just signed up. Just got my first Triumph a 2014 T100. As a kid I always thought the Bonneville was the coolest bike ever! Now I have one of my own and it is even better than the Trophy I used to 'borrow' as a kid. Now the fun of customizing it begins!

Welcome to forum. I believe from your post, you bought a Speedmaster (as opposed to the Speed Triple). Both great bikes, but I know you probably love that sweet exhaust note from that parallel twin.

Welcome to the forum!

The pre-2008 Speedmaster are the best looking, methinks. Enjoy your Triumph!
