It's my first ever Triumph.

So I've had this bike for about 10 days, it's a pretty sweet bike I have to say. Looks and sounds cool.

Rides kind of like she's been sitting in a garage for a few years, needs a little bit of fixing up. Not much, just a little.

So far I've pumped out the gas tank, which I think had 87 octane gas, refilled it with 91. Tightened up the chain. Firmed up the suspension. Replaced the mirrors, and took off the old, rusted up horn that was dying and put a on a Fiamm Freeway Blaster instead. A Freeway Blaster is preposterous on a Thruxton, but it makes me smile. It's definitely getting better, it feels like the bike is starting to show me it's character a little.

Every time I ask Google something about my bike it just sends me here, so I figured I should just sign up already.


Pleased to meet you
