    Hello everybody!

    I'm Sandy, and I'm big, hence the username. Been known as Big Sandy all my life, might as well stick with it :D

    I live in the Highlands of Scotland, not far from the North Coast. After a few years of not having a bike I got tempted by a 1997 Triumph Sprint 900. To be fair, I didn't take a lot of convincing.Its the first Triumph I have ever had, always had Japanese bikes before.

    I blame my son.... He recently did his cbt and I got bitten by the bug again after test riding his bike prior to purchase. Obviously I won't hold it against him!

    Do I like the Triumph? Oh yes! I've done more miles on it in the last couple of months than its done between its last couple of MOTs :)

    Looking forward to 'meeting' you all!

    Welcome Sandy. A few of us will be riding up your neck of the woods a couple of times next year. Keep an eye on the Ride Out threads.

    Long while since we have been south of the border @TEZ 217, and it may be a while yet, got a few issues and jobs to sort out first before going any major distance. New rear tyre fir a start!

    LOL. I'm having keyboard issues. I think it's got dyslexia! Mind, carrot fingers might not help. And the Springer Spaniel that keeps jumping up next to me isn't exactly helping. 'Woof Woof' (that's my dog impersonation.) :)

    EU? Sounds like it is.. EeeUuu. However, the wall would cost too much to rebuild. Without the EU grants, anyway. :D
