Recently picked up a brand new '19 Speed Twin. One of the best decisions I've made in years. Not new to riding but it had been a while. 3rd bike I've owned. Sold my last one due to hard times then spent a number of years traveling international for work so I never had the time to shop for another ride. Finally settled down a bit and was toying with the idea of getting another bike for the last couple years then finally just said "screw it" one day late last year when I got totally sick of sitting in traffic.

The plan was to head out on occasional afternoon rides and to take the Mrs out on weekends for a bite then eventually teach her to ride, but low and behold... she charged right into it and just got a bike of her own- an Indian, but don't hold that against her. She's a foreigner and just loves all things American. Fair enough.

Been riding when I can weather permitting and daydreaming about mods and warmer temps. Watching the forecasts like a hawk and detailing the Hell out of her. It's like being reborn.

I've got a few hobbies and interests and I must say that along with the pet owner community, the motorcycle community, esp. the Triumph sect, is about the friendliest and most helpful out there so far. They're somewhat similar mindsets. Enthusiasts take a genuine interest in the scene. IMO most "cliques" are full of a—holes with various hang-ups and something to prove. It's been very refreshing.

Anyhoo, that's me. Good to be here. Looking forward to the tips and advice, and even helping out where I can.

Cheers!

Hello Golgotha! Thank you for introducing yourself. We’re really glad you joined! That's a great looking Speed Twin!

I hope you find this site to be a great place to meet and talk with a great bunch of riders about Triumph bikes. Everyone here is very willing to help with questions or problems with your bike(s). I have personally saved lots of time and money thanks to the skilled help I have received from members.

Please post your questions in the sections related to your bike’s model. Most of the time you will get quick, informed responses.

As you cruise around the many different sections of this site you will find a wealth of information. There are technical sections for every Triumph model and chat sections for the same. Also, we have a classifieds section that is well worth checking out. (NOTE: You need to make at least five posts before you can post to Classifieds.)

Here is a link to the rules of the site and the classifieds. I recommend that you take a few minutes to read through them.

Read first before trying to post. Classified Ad Rules - Accessing Our Classifieds

If you want to just hang out and shoot the breeze the “Biker Hang-Out” Chat Section will be the place to stop in. Biker Hang-Out

If you haven't already please fill out your profile. It helps others to know what you ride and where on the planet you are located.

Here are the governing rules of the site and what can and cannot be done here. Acceptable Use Policy - Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)
