Greetings Lads & Lasses,

I thought it would be a nice idea to start a dedicated thread to share my adventures riding my Triumph here in American. Each time I go out on my Bobber I have to pinch myself as it seems a million miles away from my home county of Shropshire in England where most of my riding has taken place.

This will mainly be just a photographic thread to share any pics I take along the way.

This morning I got out early and road a lovely 60 miles or so in a circle and through some beautiful mountains and before the heat of the day got too intense.

I stopped at a wonderful old church, The Church of San Jose de la Gracia, build around 1760.

Happy riding,

Roy

Love the thread idea. I still need to throw my swing arm bag on, as I've confirmed I can fit my DSLR in it. Def plan on getting some shots soon, been too busy with life and just riding the bike though. Thanks for sharing!

I don't want to get this thread off track but Triumph says not to put fragile items in the swing arm bag. The contents of that bag take quite a pounding. I carry my camera in a butt pack.

Roy, I love the thread idea. It's fun to see where other people travel.

Hi Gents,

Thank you kindly for your encouragement.

I'm a Shropshire lad born and bred and since my move to the US 13 years ago I have been fortunate to travel and live in many beautiful areas. As I joined the forum and purchased my Bobber at around the same time I thought it would be a nice experience to share my adventures right from the start.

I realized many of our fellow members here are UK based and may never make it across the pond, so thought it would be fun to share such experiences with my fellow Brits and of course anyone else who would be interested.

I enjoy the fact that I'm English and I'm riding a Triumph here in America. It's such a beautiful country and I have loved living here, this is only going to improve now I can also ride and explore on 'Charlotte' my little Bobber :grin2:

By the way Charlotte is named after my brother Charles who died on his bike in Chester a few years ago. I also carry the ignition key from my older brother Tony who lost his life on his scooter in Shrewsbury when I was just a young lad. My hope is that they are with me and remembered on every ride.

Cheerio and happy riding,

Roy

Today I talking my 'American' wife into having a go at backing a very British crumble (I'm making the custard) but she needed more butter.

Well I took a 70 mile round trip to the lovely little Co-Op in Dixon (northern New Mexico) instead of the 3 miles to our local store.

Had an incredible ride through the mountains, a truly perfect riding day. And I've got plum crumble to look forward to..:grin2:

Sounds like a cracking day to me.

Cheerio,

Roy
