Finally good weather and a good ride



Had a good ride today. We finally had decent weather and I stretched the legs on the Triumph for about 230 miles. I really enjoyed the cruise control feature and I think it was money WELL spent. I will be the first to admit that the last section of the ride was not as fun as the first. The statement seat has me wanting to be somewhere else after a long ride. For me, the looks are worth it. I usually don’t spend that long of a time in the saddle, and maybe my rear will get used to the longer rides anyway.

Once again, while fueling, a gentleman walked up to inquire the year of my antique motorcycle.

Cool pic, bridges are in this year! Nice looking machine, I can't recall a ride that I didn't get a compliment on this bike.

I just ordered cruise control for my bike yesterday and the price from the dealership was $380.
