Welcome! I'm relatively new myself and have just jumped into the group; I'm learning a lot plus having fun.
Ask questions, read past threads, - most anything you may be curious about is here. Be mellow, and expect some kidding - part of the fun.

You made a wise decision my friend. Now go fourth and put fear into the legion of harley clones.

I like to keep things light. Nothing is so important in life that can't be settled by a good joke and a beer. Dazco I actually like the new V-Rod Aniversary Edition but that's not really a HD, is it?

no, it's a Porsche designed engine isn't it? Porsche or one of those euro sport car companies, but i think Porsche. Anyways, i actually like Vrods for thier power and look. To bad they don't handle or might've considered one if not for the bird. But then every time went to the dealer to get a part i'd have to go i disguise.

Well as I understand it, yes. It was designed and prototypes were produced by Porsche to take HD out of the 19th and into the 21 century but I guess it never fullly took.

What I can't understand is; it's a far better powerplant then the evo motor but the HD guys sort of shun it, go figure.

Anyway I made my decision for the better and it left me with allot more money for accessories.

Welcome! You'll find that the're be no reason whatsoever for a ride...but you'll find a reason to ride...or maybe you won't, but nonetheless, you'll get on and ride...because it's just that much fun. But then you probably already know that now, as you own one. Congratulations, and welcome to the ever-growing family of Triumph.

Nice, I really appreciate the welcome. I own two Triumphs right now and I enjoy them both. I grew up riding them and members of my family rode them as well. It's nice to return to something familiar and truely valued.
