    First time Triumph owner and new rider with less than 1000 miles under my belt. I found this used T100 and got a great late season deal on it. We’ve had some beautiful fall weather in Pennsylvania and I’ve been lucky to put some miles on it this week.
    I’m very impressed. I actually had money down on an Enfield 650, but the dealer fees put me off so I was looking for something retro styled used. I’m so glad I waited and found this. If you’ve never seen this color T100 in person, it’s stunning.
    I’ve found it extremely ez to ride, as I’m still very much a beginner. It’s not intimidating at all but still has plenty of power. I can’t believe how ez it’s been to get comfortable driving it. I look forward to enjoying it for years to come.
    It came with genuine Triumph pannier bags, luggage rack and center stand, (is that standard equipment?) i was thinking I was going to add some aftermarket goodies, but I kinda like it just the way it is.
    I’ll be doing most of the maintenance on it myself so I will be sourcing info from the forum for that stuff. Thanks in advance.

    Hello there and welcome
    I had an enfield and changed it for a T100, by far a better bike, you made the right decision my friend!

    I agree! This bike is immaculate, the panniers were never used, they still had the dry packs in them. I got a way better bike for more than 2k less than I was going to pay for the Enfield. Paint and finish on these is excellent.

    The finish is definately noticable Russell. The enfield is built to a price and it shows

    INT650 Glitter and Dust model $6499 ended up being $8400 by the time I was headed for the door. Dealer prep $700 battery tender $120 “all our bike leave here with a battery tender”. I just didn’t think it was an $8400 bike. 7% tax here too.

    Based on current exchange rates that works out about £355 more that I paid for mine on the road in the Uk..

    Thanks for the warm welcomes and compliments on the bike. I’ve been riding it every chance I get. First thing added will be heated grips.
