Love mine! Got tired of sport bikes and the last bike I had was a Ducati.
It was a great ride but it was like driving around in a Nascar beast all the time. Sometimes I just wanted to go for a ride without feeling like I was sitting on a hand grenade.

So I looked around, read the reviews and decided a Thruxton would be a good choice. As usual... I was right, lol.
It's fast enough to keep up, comfortable enough to take on long rides and i think it looks great!

Thanks for the tip. I'll look into after a vaccine is available! LoL. Covid has put a bit of a damper on my activity plans.

Humble, I graduated from Humble High School, too many years ago.

I love Triumphs...

I've had a Steamer Tiger, Daytona 1200, Sprint 955i, Kermit Speed Triple, and a few others.

Great Bikes!

Thanks. I'll keep the invite in mind when I'm in the area. Welcome to the forum! Good to know there's competition in the Triumph market. Y'all have used Triumphs as well?

We do have used models, although they tend to go very quickly! Right now just to name a couple, we have a Bonneville T120 ACE, a mint 2018 black Street Triple Ride Smart with 700 miles and a few tasteful mods, and a Triumph Tiger 1200 in Metallic Olive Green.
