Had Hinkley Triumphs
since 1998 (with the odd Suzuki thrown in for good measure!)
I learned to ride on a cub, back in 1969 (on the fields) but by the time I got to having a road bike, I was into Barry Sheene, and so it had to be a GT250...and on till I had the 750
However, I always had a soft spot for Triumphs, and when the new range came out in the eearly 90's, I thought, thats for me!
I have Triumph Leathers, T Shirts etc, but I also have Alpinestars etc. I am on my fourth Triumph now, and its on balance probably the best (also probably my last!)
If getting into the life style, whether its Triumph or Harley, then thats ok, as it get more people on two wheels. But eventually, bikes will be no more, as there is a dearth of new riders coming through
