New Rider / Used 2018

Fresh guppy here to scene!


I've always toyed with the idea of riding and eventually had my friend talk me into giving it a try. He let me ride his Thruxton around a big empty parking lot for an hour and it was enough to peak my interest. So immediately after that I signed up for the MSF basic rider course, got my license just last week and now here I am...



Always been drawn to Triumph's in general but the BB has been calling my name ever since I saw one. Considering picking up a used 2018 and was just wondering if there's anything particular I should be checking for when looking and test riding these bikes.



Have a couple in my area both under 2k miles. Any feedback is appreciated!!

There are some bargains to be had out there. Donít rush, find the bike you like with the options youíre looking for (exhaust, swing arm bag, etc) and go for it.

You canít go wrong with a BB with under 2k miles they have done nothing and are good to go, I love mine and am busy tweaking to my individual taste.

a juicy red apple is nice... but not every apple is red

Fellow NYer welcome

Welcome aboard to a fellow NYer.
Congrats on passing your MSF. Good luck with your search and take your time.
Youíll when you find the right bike, trust your gut.

I wonít pass any of my comments on to you regarding Gold Coast, just be wide eyed and do your homework.
Also, one of our members on here from NY is actually selling his Bobber ( Bearju ) it may still be available.

If you need any help, donít hesitate to ask us few NYers close to you as well as the rest of the guys on here.

I second Jalaans sentiments and comments mikelectic. A big welcome to the forum from another New York State resident.🗽 We like guppys here.
