Not everyone came to Triumph straight off the bat? What was your last brand of bike before you went Triumph?

My trade in was a Suzuki GSX 1250 FA (a bandit rebadged although Suzuki strongly denied it)

Was a great bike for the money never missed a beat doing circa 12K miles in a year commuting

From Suzuki, though I'm pleased to say that the last time I bought a Suzuki was back in 1986!  :001:

Pleased to see that you've grouped Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki and Yamaha together as one! I'm really not sure how to tell them apart now either  :008:

Cruisers made by Yamaha, then a Honda.  Then I found the mighty Rocket III !
Then a Tiger 800XC, now a Trophy.  I guess I'm a Triumph fan.
