Hi, Had a test ride last Friday and have just agreed to buy a 1600 Thunderbird, going to pick it up from Triumph Newcastle on Saturday. Totally different from my current Sprint ST 1050. But I think I'll keep both. I'm a member of 3 bike organisations: Widows Sons Scotland (East Chapter) I'm currently Road Captain. Peebles Motorcycle Clan. Borders Group of Advanced Motorists (IAM) 1st Pass.
