Alright ladies and gents....and Cheapbastard...hehe...i have a proposition for all ya ll in the good ole States...

Who here on these Triumph forums would welcome a fellow traveling Triumph owner into their place without meeting them?

You might ask why.... good question...well it has been a plan in the working of mine and the the girlfriend to do a ride across the country next summer. She is graduating from UCLA and wants to do a road trip for a couple months come late spring/summer.... We have places in Washington, Arizona, Texas, Minnesota, Tennessee, and other places that we have friends or relatives.

I have been on this site for a good time and i think it would be a blast to meet some of you faukers...haha... We plan on renting out our place and just making the best of it till we get tired or run out of road...We want to cover lots of the country and see most of the usual tourist hot spots...We want to keep it light/ minimal baggage and document the journey(via blog and photos) along the way.

As of right now....there isn't a definite route, that will take shape in a few months. I just know that it would be nice getting valuable info from the locals like yourselves. Who knows we might meet some new friends along the way....

Let us know what ya ll think...Thanks Dano...

If you end up coming through Santa Fe New Mexico. You are welcome to use my guest room, and I can make room in the garage for more bikes.

I'm in southeast houston, You're welcome to hole up here for a day or two. In houston there are two independent shops (not dealers) I'd recommend. Andy at Metric Cycles and Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited. Neither specialize in Triumphs but they both do quality work. There is a triumph dealer about 15 miles from my house if its something that just has to be triumph though.

If your as high as northern Washington and decide to ride up into Canada to catch Waterton National Park and Glacier national park. I am in Lethbridge, Alberta. I don't have a garage that locks, but even better you don't need to lock up your bike here. I do have a spare room you can use in our unfinished basement. Queen sized bed. You are more than welcome.

Sounds like a fun Idea. Good luck.
