Hi all,
I just signed for a 2015 limited "ACE" edition Thruxton - beautiful bike.
I'm a french citizen who emigrated in QC two years ago, and it's my first bike on this side of the Atlantic.
BC predator exhaust + fender eliminator tail light kit are being installed right now.

Previous bikes in France, in order of appearance:
Suzuki SV 650 (MY2002, new)
Honda VTR 1000 Superhawk (MY2001, used)
Kawazaki Z750 (MY2004, new)
Triumph Speed Triple 955 (MY2003, used, my favorite)
Triumph Daytona 955 (MY2002, used)
Royal Enfield Bullet 350 (rental, bike trip in India for 2 months)
Honda CBR600 (MY1988, super used)

then no riding for 7 years

Now back on a British bike, and yes, I'm definitely a fashion victim of the recent "Classic Vintage" wave, on which so many bike / accessory manufacturers are surfing on. The fact is, I don't need HP anymore, I don't WANT hp anymore (family & kids, etc), I don't need anything sporty because roads in QC are crap, and I used to love my previous Triumphs. So time to enjoy classicism instead of power. Also my first parallel twin...
