    Hi all, I’m a new member to the forum and, Triumph ownership.
    I bought a 2013 lunar silver mag wheel bonnie about three weeks ago, and am really loving it!

    I’d post a picture, but would you believe I’ve not taken a single one? I’ve been too busy riding / cleaning it

    Welcome to the Family. Got all the best patients here and the medication isn't bad either. Nursey comes round regular. Especially when a patron forgets to post a picture. We start to shake and fall of our walking sticks with anticipation.
    Ride Safe

    Thanks for the very warm welcome, guys!

    I promise to post up some pics as soon as I’ve received my Motone and TEC bike parts orders - I just couldn’t help myself

    Do any of you guys have the TEC sprint, 2 - 2 exhaust fitted?
    I really like the look of it, although I’d have it ceramic coated black - I’m just worried it’s too much of hooligan, sound wise.
    I have the Arrow 2-1 on mine - which I like - but I really like the twin pipe look, while still leaving access for chain adjustment.

    Hi and welcome dirty, I also like the twin pipes as it stands out against the 2-1 and gives a clean look from both sides on a bonnie.
    Looking forward to some pix

    Hi, thanks for the pics, that is one lovely bike you have and I think the exhaust suits the bike. Bet it sounds nice too.

    Thanks, Justin.

    It sounds nice with the baffle in, and a bit of a hooligan with it out :imp:

    Hi Phil,

    Where are you buying the 60th anni from?
    A very close friend and riding partner has been using Ongar Motorcycles for many years and highly recommends them - even though East London Triumph is our local dealer (was Jack Lilly).

    I popped into ELT for a nose about a few weeks ago and even though I was the only ‘potential customer’ in the building, not one staff member acknowledged me. But when I popped into OM’s I was offered a friendly hello and tea or coffee with minutes of being there.

    Good luck with 60th either way, and maybe we’ll meet up for coffee and a chat sometime..

    Andy.
