Merry Christmas from a newbie

Hi everybody,
I have recently joined the forum and wanted to introduce myself.
Orignally from North Yorkshire, I now live in Oklahoma city and have recently joined the ranks of Triumph ownership.
My Thunderbird 900 has joined a few other bikes and works in progress, to keep me from going nuts on the cold dark nights.
I believe it is suffering from the sprag clutch malady that is common with the triples (even though it has only done 8Kish miles) however, I will not be sure until I really start looking into it, and I am having to be patient, as I said I would complete the rebuild of the DR500 before I started on the Tbird.
There is every possibility I will be asking questions about the way forward; although, there is already so much info on the site about the bike and the ownership, enjoyment etc of them.

Thank you for all your contributions on here, it is and will be a great help.

Cheers
Drew

Thanks

Hi guys
Thanks for the welcome.
The move from "ol blighty" was due to my wife's work.

I look forward to chatting again
Cheers
