Almost. I believe the gas station was in NY but very close to the CT border. The cars are in CT, at least for the moment. I live on Manhattan but usually only take the Touareg down considering the M2 is a track car and NYC potholes. Not sure where to have the bike yet.Okay then, now I know where the photos were taken. So the gas station is in Connecticut and the cars are in New York.
Welcome to the forum.
Shamrock seems to be a bit of a stalker....likes to know where everyone lives.....
Anywhere there are good roads. Seems to be Northwestern CT and upstate NY (Harriman's / Bear Mtn area) - at least for what's easily accessible to me.You guys make it sound like "pervert" is a bad thing!🐑
(Full Disclosure: I don't care where anyone lives but I sure do like to know where they ride)
I rode there 20 years ago, from BC on a GS500! My friend has family in Reno so we road tripped down. Some fun roads down there. Pyramid lake near there?
my dad was seriously looking at a Thruxton or speed twin, before he rode my wife’s Kawi er6n (the naked 650 ninja) last summer and really enjoyed riding a more “sporty” bike. When he went and sat and looked at the retro triumphs he shifted his look to the street twin or 790 duke. I think he made a great choice, he thinks I made a great choice with my FZ09... win win!! and I have an M4 Rm1 and can’t find the Baffle, I enjoyed a bit of piece and quiet while I got to ride his bike!!! Haha. He’s put about 4000km on the bike, and looks really solid with his riding and cornering. Not a bad start to retirement!If I had way better road surfaces, I’d love to have a Thruxton R. The epitome of their vertical twin heritage.
Funny thing with Triumphs are the responses on Street Triples vs Speed Triples. The Speed T is supposed to be the big daddy, but most of what I’ve read were negative, whereas the Street model gets rave reviews. I’ve test ridden a Street Triple and, personally, didn’t like it. I found the extremely high revs very buzzy and an annoying sound. My negative reaction was immediate and ended the test ride within a half dozen miles. Not everyone likes the same stuff, which is a good thing. I’ve had three other Triumphs and really liked two of them. The third, a Tiger 800 XCX was great, but way too tall and top heavy for me. My first was a Bonneville in the 60s, which was a very popular classic. My second was a Tiger 1050 which was a truly outstanding triple. They do make great bikes.
