    Hello,

    Did this before in response to welcome Email but think it should have been here.

    UK based, pre-cambrian 62 year old returned to biking after triple AAA operation which has meant that I have ceased trading as a self employed sparky and am retired. Previously, a Bantam (without a seat) in private grounds (1975 ish), a Norton Dominator (with a box made from my Auntie's wardrobe - mirror removed) in Suffolk and Isle of Wight and a Honda C70 used to commute between Selsdon and South Bank Polytechnic (as it was back then) for a few years (1985 ish). As you could ride a 650cc with sidecar or 250cc solo on a provisional back then, I hadn't taken my test until January, 2020. Had a Yamaha YS125 to prepare and now have a Tiger 800 - which is about all I wish to handle given my experience level and long gap since riding previously. Live in Northants. I'll be the old duffer pootling along enjoying the countryside and freedom.

    Welcome to the best Triumph forum there is. :)

    I've learned a lot here... Not going to tell you what though. I'd have to kill you, and you only just joined :)

    Naaah, seriously, great bunch of guys and gals here, and a wealth of experience and knowledge.
