Nice ! I'm sure it won't be long till you rack up a bunch of miles on her.
I hope you get many miles of smiles out of here.

Love that bike Mark! Probably my favorite all time Triumph just by seeing it and sitting on it. It ticks every box. Unfortunately being retired and my car dying this year it wasn't meant to be. I ended up back on Tiger Roadie which I am in the process of bringing up to backwoods specs. Enjoy my friend! :drool:

Thanks! This bike pretty much ticks all the boxes for me too. It has all the utility, comfort, and handling of an ADV bike, yet it has the personality, minimalism, and gorgeous looks of the Bonneville. And not only does it tick those boxes on paper -- the bike is also incredibly well executed. Triumph did a phenomenal job on this thing. I think it may be my all-time favorite motor, and the suspension is excellent bone-stock. I haven't even made any adjustments to it yet. Even the exhaust note is gorgeous -- much throatier than I've ever heard from a stock exhaust.

I'm dying for the weather to get properly springlike so I can take this bike out for a good long ride. I'm pretty sure this bike + 65-degree temps + blue skies will be a spectacular combination. I can't wait!

What did you figure out for luggage for it? The high pipes and simple seat look like they'd make it hard, though you've always been pretty efficient in what you bring.
