Hi everyone. I am in Maitland Australia, just waiting for delivery of my new Thunderbird, due this week. Rode the bike and fell in love within about 50metres! Only down side I found was I was unable to change the included panniers for other accessories that I really wanted. I read the offer for the thunderbird in the UK and would have preferred that option. My dealer tried to see if could be changed but no go. Oh well he tried. I did post a similar comment on the australian triumph facebook page, but i think they deleted it. There was nothing offensive, so I dont understand why. Anyway, looking forward to my thunderbird experience.
