Hello fellow Triumph fans, I inherited a Triumph TR3A from my father, and now own a 2001 Triumph Sprint ST and a 2013 Triumph Trophy SE. I used to own older Brit bikes ( I had two beloved BSA Thunderbolts '68 and '71 and a Norton 850 Commando- I can't remember the year, but it was a great bike). I then got a Moto Guzzi 850T, followed by Moto Guzzi 1000 LeMans, then a BMW R1150R. Most of my friends rode Harleys. I've ridden those, and they're fine bikes too, but never really captured my fancy. Then the Sprint. My wife said she felt she was sliding forward and back during acceleration and braking, so I got the big Trophy. It's by far the most sophisticated and comfortable bike I've ever ridden. I love it, but being a quite fit 60 year old 5'8" guy, it feels tall and heavy in the parking lot. I've dropped it twice, which makes me sick! I learned something- don't touch the front brake at low speeds! All my other bikes being so much smaller, the poor technique never showed up as a problem. I bought a lowering kit from Soupie's and I'm now dealing with it just fine. Once it's moving, it feels light and nimble- just a bit of a handful in driveways and parking lots. Well, that was quite a long-winded hello! I'm excited to speak with other Triumph owners (who I regard as being strong individuals and not sheep)!
