New to the ST forum, but not Triumphs

Got it, I've read the sticky and updated my profile. Currently riding an '04 Bonnie Black, but looking to do some 2 up sport touring with the ST. If I go ST it will be used, but if I don't find one I may wait to take a hard look at the new GT. Thanks in advance for your advice..

All,
This is a family oriented Site and forum. We at TriumphRat have always advocated a family type atmosphere where all can feel welcome. There is enough garbage out there and it has never been allowed in this , Shawn's site nor this forum. This has been Shawn's direction from the beginning and the moderators have all fully supported his vision.

My personal line in the sand is: If we were all in my Grandmother's home what would I allow and not allow to happen. I have operated this way since Shawn asked me to moderate this forum with his Ok.

This is a forum where children can be present and we would like to see more lady riders feel comfortable here.

I am asking you all to review your Avatars and your language and edit them yourselves or I will edit them for you as I see fit.

And I don't want to hear anything about freedom of speech or censoring. This is a privately owned site and it doesn't apply here.

DaveM and I are on the same page on this. So, as I say, please review your Avatars and change as necessary as anything that looks questionable to either one of us will be deleted.

I don't want to seem harsh on this but that's the way it is.

Thank you for understanding,

Don

I'm happy to be on a well-used and mature site. I've been on others and there is always one guy who is crass. Glad to see "he" won't be here. :thumbsup

Just joined as I just purchased my first Triumph (motorcycle that is, have had a few Spitfire 4 wheeled versions!) Had always been a Kawasaki guy since the 70's so I'm sure there will be a learning curve though my brother had a 71 Trophy.

The bike is a new to me 2001 Sprint ST. I'd post a photo but not sure if a newbie is allowed here or not so I'll wait so as not to anger the gods! :D

Thanks,
This is a great site with a huge amount of valuable information, I recently purchased an 01 Sprint ST in BRG and love the bike. The information gathered from this site was the reason why I went with the triumph and have learn't so much in such a short space of time from the input of the experienced members of this forum.
I have just ordered a trident stubbie from Peter and are planning on loading the aftermarket pipe map from TuneECU. I am very much a hands on person and really appreciate the ability to garnish information so easily from this forum.
Thanks again.
Regards,
Dan
