Was that you near Castaic today, sunday?

I saw only the second Tbird on the road today after 2 years of ownership. Passed him on lake hughes road about 7 or 8 miles from castaic lake i guess, him headed up and away from castaic and me headed back down.He gave me the wav and was gone before i could see the color or any finer details of the Tbird. Was that someone here? Confess !

Was'nt me either but I had a similer situation. I saw a silver/black bird parked at the Publix supermarket by my house and wondered if it were someone here.

Wasn't me either, we rode out to Fillmore. I have an Army buddy that is in New Orleans right now. Let him ride the TB and I rode the Vstar, here are his comments on FB. Good thing it wasn't a 1700.



"I have found my dream cruiser. It's a Truimph Thunderbird 1600cc. Thanks to my friend, Ray who played the Cupid.

He invited me this morning for a bike ride. He let me used his Yamaha V-star 1100cc. It was a great bike but the the magic happened when we swapped bikes. He got on the V-star and I hopped on his Trumph Thunderbird.

The Truimph is very, very sweet bike. It didn't whine or nagged when i requested more speed due to the big 1600cc engine (that engine displacement is as big as my Toyota Altis). I hardly felt any vibrations, truly a smooth and comfortable bike. It 's a big bike but handles very nicely like a bike half it's weight. We rode for about 2 hours around winding roads.

I have ridden american and japanese cruiser before but this british bike stole my heart.

I gotta have this bike someday,somewhere, somehow....

Thanks again to Ray for the ride."

Ahh, well, i was wrong. You were my first bet as to who it was and I was expecting you'd chime in eventually to say it was you. Oh well. Must be someone who's not a member.

Oh, and i hope your buddy can swing one soon. Sounds like he found his soul mate in a bike.

I've yet to see another Triumph of ANY model here in Baton Rouge, although based on the occasional craig's list ad showing up, I know there are a few out there.

It's kinda nice having something that few others have locally.

Have to use up vacation time, and a long ride was the best way for me.
