Hello All,

Was a RAT member back in 94, when I had a Cosworth Super 3. (and a few Meriden bikes before that). Time has moved on and many bikes later, I'm about to join the Trumpet club once again.

I blagged a ride on a friends bonnie a few weeks ago, and fell in love.
Admittedly it was a very expensive Macco Moto, dripping in expensive bits, but I'm picking my own bonnie up tomorrow!

While I love the wire wheel look, I went for an 09 SE, which I reckon might be slightly better handling and gives me a great tyre choice. I have the parts catalogue out, spanners ready and shopping list to hand. Just got a 150 mile ride back on her first :smile2:

Looks like there's a lot of good technical info here, so I expect to be calling in pretty regular.

Ride safe

Welcome to the forum!

Oh my, you had a Super III? I love that generation Triumph! I had a Daytona 1200 SE that I traded in on an Aprilia back in 2001, and I have regretted that ever since. Those early Hinckley Daytona's are absolutely beautiful machines.
