Hello from Mid-Missouri! - Columbia, MO

Paul here, a newly appointed Rat Forum Liaison-Activist for the upper Mid-West region. I'm a Mechanical Engineer by day, and a Mechanical Engineer by night, and when I'm lucky, I get to be in the garage working on my Sprint or poking at my new '73 Benelli Tornado 650.

I'm already considered an activist as I have 5 friends with modern Triumphs! My primary bike is an '05 Sprint ST ABS w/'Busa forks among other goodies. After a quick spin on my buddies '05 Speed Triple, I had to have one, but I went after the sprint for the wind protection and hard bags. I'm Lovin it!!

Give a quick shout if you're in Missouri or nearby!

Thanks,
Paul

North Kansas City

Riding a 10 Thunderbird and a 06 Buell Ulysses. Both great and unique bikes that have awesome engines.
Wouldn't mind a ride to the Lake of the Ozarks or something sometime.

Fairview Heights Il, 2010 Tbird. I see some neighbors on this site. We had a Triumph dealership in Belleville, it moved to Saint Louis. I suspect that's why there are locals here with Triumphs.

I'm in KCMO riding my "new to me" 2000 Speed Triple and loving every second of it. I'm always looking for someone to ride with so feel free to give me a shout.

Hey gerrieSTL, you weren't by chance riding out near Chesterfield Valley last weekend? Saw a black Thrux riding by the railroad tracks on Centaur road near Spirit airport. Don't see too many around!!

Goat, the last time I was out there by Spirit was probably a month and a half ago. I rode up 109 from Eureka up to the valley. I haven't had time for a riding day in a while so I tend to work riding in with errands and work. Not as fun but atleast I'm riding.

I thought I had the only Triumph in Jefferson County, MO (just south of st. louis) but I've seen an America or Speedmaster (Who can tell them apart from a distance?) on HWY 30 plus a Bonnie and a Thruxton out here in the high twisties.

So maybe I have the only B&W T100 in JeffCo.

It's motorcycle heaven in my neighborhood and the T just loves these twisty roads.

I used to live in Maryland Heights and split my time between Calhoun County, IL (the Illinois Ozarks) and Wildhorse Creek Rd. to HWY T and beyond.

I just left Columbia Mo. to come back to the West Coast. Had enough of CoMo. If you go to the PGR or the Honor Flight Events tell Reed and Debra Charles said Hi.
