Finally got one!
« on: July 28, 2014, 11:37:07 pm »
I joined this forum almost a year ago to learn more about the TTSE.  Bought a 2004 ST1300 to see if a sport touring bike would work for me long-term.  Rode the Honda a bit in the fall, then around Lake Superior (starting and ending near Detroit) the first week in June.  Decided a sport touring bike was the right choice, but the Honda just did not fit right... time to search for a used TT - at least until Triumph builds one in red or BRG!  Found a silver 700 mile 2013 TT and had it shipped in last week.  Rode it around the block a couple of times and sent it to the dealer for the past due 500 mile maintenance, and to have lowering links and expedition bars installed.  Should be riding tomorrow or Wednesday.  Can't wait!
2004 Honda ST 1300 - sold
2006 Suzuki M50 - sold
1983 Honda Sabre V45 - sold
1975 Honda 360 - sold

Congratulations.
We need a ride report to see what you think of the beast!
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

Congratulations & welcome to the forum!  Make sure the dealer checks for any applicable recalls while it's in for maintenance.  Also curious - are you looking to get your new ride painted red?  Not sure if anyone has done that here in the states.  Enjoy!

Hi Fastwheels and welcome.  That's quite a handle to live up to!

Looking forward to your first impressions, especially with the modifications you are getting.

Later
