Thumbs up My 500 mile + Review

Fell in love with the looks of this bike.
Read and watched every review. Went and road it.
Finagled finances got lucky with wife. ( not what your thinking )
Rode 500 miles and cant get off this machine just love it on all the back roads around where I live.
I have adjusted the chain got the bike lift and bobbins. Changed oil and filter. Gotten use to the throttle. Now I have to master turning off the blinkers, kinda tricky for me, always going from left to right. LOL
I have never seen another one the the road yet. People ask what year it is, they think its real old and I love that.
Great Job Triumph !!!! Im going to take good care of her and hopefully she will take care of me. (Yes we are bonding)

Regards, Catchoreno

Catchoreno, I believe turning off the blinkers is accomplished by pressing straight in on the switch. Easy peasy!

Welcome to the site. Great looking bike! I love the Morello Red. By far my favorite stock color. Any mods planned?

Short sharpe and to the point... nice little write up. I can relate to the bonding

Iíve been fighting the urge to do my own write up but Iíve only covered 170 miles so far so perhaps Iíll leave it a little longer.

Enjoy Bobber brother!

Nice! How many miles did you ride before you felt like the new tires were ready for Twisties?

I usually take it easy-ish for the first 100km or so on new tires and ease them through winding corners to get rid of any film or coating left on them. Certainly no rapid throttle openings when exiting a corner until Iím sure the rubber is run in and warm. But also depends on road/weather conditions. The Avonís warm up pretty quickly, even on cold mornings.

Glad you are digging it!

For the finagling of finances, I was thinking you raided her pocket book, or had to do like I did which included a "sit at the table and listen to me..." with lots of eye contact..sometimes with sad cat eyes...oh,ok, call it begging....
