Old School on new R3

Holt Florida
Just a short hello. . . . I just picke up my new R3 and love this thing. This is the first bike I have ever owned with more than two cylinders but its nice to be able to get back to my Triumph Roots . . .

Been riding for 35+ years with the majority of my bikes being HD and Triumph. Even a 7.80 1/8 mile 850 topped T-140 built with advice and parts from Routt. This thing is MUCH more bike than any previous. Hope to get to know you folks . . looks interesting so far

Jack I have a two stroke weed eater and leaf blower - we had an old lawn boy mower that was two stroke, is that what you are talking about??? :D My uncle had a '75 Kawi H1.

OK enough talking about how old you are. Welcome Boogerdave.

BTW, my '70 Bonnie will be in the classified forum shortly.
