    Hello all! Just to introduce myself as a newbie, I'm based in south Wales and am currently riding a completely stock T120 Black. It's not my first Triumph, I previously had a Sprint GT1050 that got nicked. I was going to replace it with another Sprint, but then saw the T120 in the dealers so thought I'd take it out for a spin. Fell in love with it within seconds, though it didn't please the other half much as she really liked the pillion on the Sprint. Oh well, she'll come round as soon as she gets on it when the weather improves. I've also got a Honda VTR1000 Firestorm, but I won't talk about that :)

    Welcome to the family. Nice choice of bike do hit the upload a file button bottom right corner and show the inmates the new steed. Here in the asylum we do like pictures easier to read. Nothing wrong with the firestorm either. Rather nice machines. Do tell your wife you get some fantastic seats for the Bonnies very comfy from people like Corbin.
    Regards & Ride Safe
    Joe.

    Welcome in Captain. The other half will either like it or you get to ride solo. Win win either way in my eyes. The worst that could happen is she insists you get another bike. Oh and don't worry about the Honda....I bet the Firestorm will be appreciating in value now?
