At last! I am in love again.

So. It's taken 11 months but finally, finally, the magic has happened and all systems are back to normal.

My Triumph and I are as one. My heart starts to beat faster when I turn the key and everything is as easy as breathing.

It has been a massive change from my beloved Harley to this brilliant little bike, but I have the measure of it now. I was starting to think I would never be able to ride it properly and then, suddenly, it all fell into place and I am having the time of my life. I love it, I love it, I love it.

Hi, ally.

I've always liked the Triumph but it never felt like it was part of me like the Harley did. I could ride it fine, but not without having to think about the difference all the time. I had trouble with it being so smooth and light and had to learn how to stop wrestling it round every corner.

I've had it lowered and the suspension set up to suit me. I have a nifty adjustable clutch lever and a set of grip puppies that have helped with the problem of my fingers and thumbs dislocating and a new gel seat that means I can use a full tank of fuel without needing to rest, although I do need help to get on and off if I do long distances. I have many good friends who will be there for me if I'm struggling so it's not too much of a problem.

And now I have learnt to ride it properly I am just so happy with it. I even love my trip to work and back every day. Big smiles all the time again.

things don't ever gel and it gets so frustrating.  I'm glad the mojo has been located:smile

I had a 600f  and me and her never got it together, and I mean never.

 Such good bikes by everyone else's standard but for me it just didn't work.

Also had a 650 Dominator and it threw me off more times than I can remember, but pilot error I think:smile
