Greetings - Just a quick note to intro myself. Based in Auckland New Zealand - just minutes from the Pacific Coast Highway and glorious roads that could have been built for the new Hinckley twins :) Had a Red/White Thruxton since Oct 09 - have a prior history as a bit of a 'bike ****' averaging 8 months ownership per bike since 1978 - the Thruxton cured that. Still deeply in love. Got car license and bike license in 1978 - have never owned a car. Drive rentals etc, but my garage has only ever been graced by two wheels. Nice to be here and looking forward to posting some pics soon. Cheers. :)

G'day from just across the Firth of Thames in Coromandel:D

Nice bike you have - it was a toss-up for the Thruxton or Street Triple to replace my Blackbird last year and the ST only just shaded it.

Happy riding!

Thanks guys. Heaven was yesterday coming down the Kaipara highway from Wellsford to Helensville and sharing my side of the road with only 3 cars in about 70 fast km :) BTW Kiwirat - I can understand the ST choice living where you do - it'd scratch better than the Thruxton - pretty sure though the Arrow pipes on mine may have the edge on sound in some of those twisty areas :)
