Hi, I am a long-time motorcycle rider, and have enjoyed riding motorcycles since 1992. I currently ride a 2012 Speed Triple R, which I have owned since nearly new, and have decided to join a discussion forum to read about the new Trident. I am not terribly old, but am appreciating relaxed ergonomics more lately, and am thinking of getting something that rides more upright and relaxed for the longer rides I occasionally take with friends. For most of my riding career, I have ridden solo, and used the bike primarily for commuting to/from work. Longer rides out are new to me, still. I am looking forward to what people have to say about some of the new models out there since I last considered shopping for a bike. I have heard good things about the Trident, but also the Speed Twin, which is also attractive.
