Fisrt Triumph for 39 years
« on: January 13, 2020, 09:26:23 PM »
I had a bad crash in my late teens on a B and put bikes to one side in my life, but got the urge to ride again in my early 50,s after a bit of a big C scare.... i have been riding a victory Crossroads for the last 6 years but saw a tiger 800 in Bridge Exeter and could resist... still kept the cruiser for those odd summer days bit enjoying the tiger immensely... i made a mistake of going for the xcx versions with only a 27 inch leg but have managed to get the bike low enough for both feet comfortable on the ground with home made lowering links..
