Well... I'm either two days, or nine days from purchasing a new Speed Twin. Just the basic black model to go with my all white car. I'm heading up for a test ride early on Saturday. I'm 90% sure I'm going to love it. I've been thinking of a new Triumph for a few years. I liked the smaller Speed Cup and the Thruxton S models. But it never sat well in my stomach... like a gut feeling. When I saw the teasers for the Speed Twin, I waited and waited. And now that I see them, I really like them. I just want to get a firm price. They'll cut $750 off the top because the only black model they have is a demo model with 170 miles on it. So that seems like a quick win. We're working out details over the phone. But I'm pretty much ready to pay as soon as I enjoy that test ride.
But here's to hoping to join the Triumph family. I'll definitely keep you posted.
