It's true!!! Gabbydad is back in the fold!!!!

I know I know, you've all been waiting with baited breath!

I joined our ranks in 2010 with my then new Bonnie SE. I sold her 3 years ago and grabbed a Sportster which I still own and love, but I was missing something.

This morning I just titled my new (to me) 2006 Speed Triple. It feels so right being back among the Triumph faithful. I love the marque!

Welcome back to the forum!

The Speed Triple is the best motorcycle ever! Really!!! It should be a good compnaion to your Sportster. Its nice to have that choice.

What model Sportster do you have? I learned to ride on a 1995 883 (back when there was still a "standard" sportster) and later owned a 1200 Custom. I like the new models, the Forty Eight in particular. But my favorite Sportster to lust for is the XR1200X.

Cheers!

Love the Sp Triple. The Sporty looks great. Glad I don't have to hear it.
