Greetings from the far side all. I am new to the Triumph forum but not new to motorcycling. I have cousin in Ardmore OK who is absolutely convinced the new Triumphs could well be the best scooters made today. I have always trusted his ability at researching products and making wise decisions. Hence I am taking a serious look at jumping from the Bavarian ship onto the British. I have been riding since 1968 and on beemers since 1977. I did have a 20-year break from 1980 to April of 2000 though. Despite that long hiatus, I have still managed to accumulate nearly 400K miles in my riding history.

I am very excited about the Trophy due out in January. That 30.3" seat height really got my attention seeing as how I can only boast a 27" inseam. What I'm hoping to gain here is insight into these fine looking machines (visually as well as spec-wise) in order to make an informed decision for my 60th B-day present in May of 2014. Of course the hope is that I will be impresed enough to have a new Trohpy in the stable at that time. I am planning a test ride on my 59th B-day next May in Bethany, OK where my cousin will meet me and maybe a few friends for a test ride of his own.

Let me know what y'all think about the new Trophy as they become avaialable and folks begin to rack up miles and smiles.

any Texas Triumph rallies

I'm curious about any Texas Triumph rallies. Are there many/any planned in the near future? If so, when and where? I'd like to get a close-up look at other models and meet the owners between now and my test ride next May.

Texas Hill Country + bluebonnett tour?

greetings from the far north of Texas again. I wasn't quite sure where to put this so it seemed like the welcome thread might be appropriate.

I have noticed quite a few Texans signing up lately and was wondering if any of you have plans to make a bluebonnett tour about mid-April. One of my brothers lives a little way outside Austin at Horseshoe Bay and keeps me up to date on the current crop. I would like to see if maybe we could plan a spring ride into the hill country to enjoy the great twisty roads and beautiful scenery all at once. Any other Texans (or others) leaning in that direction?
