    Hey all,

    I'm Jim, live in Omaha,NE.

    After many years of wishing, I finally have my Triumph. Wanted one for years, but an injury made it too hard to work the shifter, so I never got my hands on one. While we were getting work done on her can am a couple weekends ago (which she just traded for a blue F3), my wife talked me into going to the dealership and I finally found a way to make the shifter work with my foot. Wife said she hasn't seen me as happy as when I got back from the test ride for years and wouldn't let me leave without it. I finalized everything, traded in my 2015 Fury last Tuesday and though I miss some things about it, I have no regrets. This bike is a treat to ride, at 170 pounds lighter, it's like riding a bicycle after being on the Fury. Though, I am considering a windshield for the first time ever. Never sat up this much and the wind is definitely more noticeable at speed.

    I'll be hitting the 500 mile mark tomorrow, if the weather holds up (which it hasn't been doing too well), so I hope I'll be getting that oil change out of the way. Looking forward to having that center stand to make life easier.

    This is only the 3rd bike I've owned, first new. Had a black and yellow 07 Boulevard M50 that I loved and still regret trading for the Fury. Don't get me wrong, the Fury was great for what it was, but it just wasn't me.

    Anyway, look forward to interacting with you all.

    Cheers.
