Posted on the 19th of July about viewing a 98 thunderbird. Well bike got sold before the weekend. Talk about being dissappointed. Spent most of last week mooping around not wanting to think or look at triumph. Then on Thursday I couldn't take it anymore and right away saw a 96 t-bird with 6300 miles that looked pretty nice. Didn't dilly dally around and called and set up a time for Saturday. Drove the 300 miles with trailer and negotiated price down from $2700 to 2500 and WALLA! I am now a proud owner. I now have 4 loves in my life: God, family, country and my Triumph. Have service manuals ordered and she will receive fresh fluids and then some road miles. Have to confess we did take a 60 mile jaunt and it was--Glorious.
