Greetings from Beckley WV

Hello fellow Bobber riders. Had mine a week now and loving it. I’m a Brit’ so the Triumph seems appropriate. I took a ride yesterday evening to cool off. A couple of turkey vultures snacking by the side of the road decided to take to flight as I was passing and I had to lay flat on the tank to avoid wearing bird. By way of thanks I was showered with putrid meat. Now if any Harley riders try to tell me Triumphs stink, I would have to agree.....

Welcome!
I think you must take the prize for the most rancid splat on this forum!

Hi Des,

Welcome to the forum mate from another ex-pat. What part of the UK are you from.

I'm a Shropshire lad in Arizona. And agree it's nice to be here in the wonderful US and riding a Triumph.

With a photo like that you could be an extra on the Walking Dead..

Cheerio,

Roy

Hey Des! Welcome!

Looks like a sign from the parts deity that you need new mirrors!

Glad it missed you though, I'm thinking that would have smarted!

Welcome! I've been to Beckley! We used to head down there to raft the Upper Gauley river!

Thank you all for the welcomes. Very happy to be here by virtue of such a sweet ride. Not so sweet yesterday, that mess was rancid, but if that’s the worse thing to happen on my rides then life is good.

Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to the group? Any changes planned yet?

Each one matters.

Welcome to the clan.

I know how you feel I once had a bird s*** on my helmet...I didn't take her out again!
