    Hello all,

    I've been on my Scrambler 1200XC since last June. I was originally looking at Royal Enfield, but the dealer I visited also sold Triumph and just happened to have a 2019 press fleet bike that was in immaculate condition with a mere 1850 miles on it (barely run-in). The price was right, and it came with a full factory warranty so I rode it home and have been driving it on my weekly commute of 400 miles/week since (excluding days of severe inclement weather). The beauty of living and working in America's desert south-west is that you can typically get around 350 days/year where you can throw a leg over your bike and ride it somewhere.

    Anyway, I'm happy to have found this forum, and look forward to becoming involved with others in our shared enthusiasm for Triumph motorcycles.

    We too are lucky to live in England where we typically get around 350 days a year wishing the bloody rain would stop feeling-blue-smiley-emoticon.gif
    No just kidding, it's not that bad. When you get time, post a picture or two of your Scrambler.
    Anyway, enjoy it, and the forum too.

    While I look nothing at all like Forrest Gump, I'm told I wave like he does. Thanks for the welcome! :laughing:
