Hey bergerhl! Hello, good morning and a very warm
to the net's best for all things Street Triple!
Triumphs have changed a lot since you were in High School - unless that was just last year, of course .... in which case they've just got different colour schemes and so forth!
I'm not sure there are others here from the 'City of Sin' - hopefully they'll chime in rather than hide!
I remember on one of my early trips to the US - possibly my first in 1979 - my (then) wife and I were in a motel on the outskirts of the city and we rode into downtown in jeans and shirt - no jackets, no helmets. It had been a hell of hot day and the relatively cool evening air was perfect for relaxed riding. I pulled up at a stop light and a guy on a 'bike pulled up alongside and said "Hey buddy - there's a helmet law in this state!"
And I had thought that all those cage drivers were staring at me because I was a Limey on a 750 Commando in LV Nevada and - of course - ubercool! HAH!! Actually, the bike was California registered so most of the drivers were looking at me and thinking "Jeez., that dumb jerk's about to get a ticket!"
So, taking delivery of Triumph's finest next week? Tell us all more - we're good listeners. Is it brand new? Which model? Which colour? You'll be taking some pictures to show us, of course, so how about a write up of your dealer experience? Or your first ride home? Enquiring minds need to know!
Enjoy the ride with us - stay safe and stay well.
