From Harley to Triumph!

Hello all, my last few bikes have all been Hogs, however, today I finally made the switch to a TBird 1600 and.......I LOVE IT!!!!!!

Currently lying in bed, wishing it was morning, like a kid on Xmas eve, because all I wana do is hop back on that solo pad and ride!!!

Look forward to sharing some thoughts and discussions on this board re. this amazing brand of bike

RIDE SAFE ALL!
