Last night, signed the paperwork and purchased a Red 2005, R3. OMG.... test drove it and wow.. what a bike. I wanted to have a little fun, pushed it past 5k rpm and looked down and was doing 105 mph. It was handling like no other bike I have ever driven. Downside, I won't be able to pick it up for another week, until the accessories are installed. (ThrottleMeister, Shield, backrest/rack, panniers, all OEM)

HAIL to TRIUMPH!!!

Welcome. No use telling you how much you will like the R3, the bike speaks for itself.

Glad to have you with us and for goodness sakes, stop looking at the clock.......that'll only make time slow down. I actually heard you smiling in your description of your first encounter with the "BEAST". If you have a question, suggestion or comment then you've come to the right place.

Keep us posted!
