The first bike I ever road was a BSA 441 Victor after my high school art teacher tossed me his keys. I bought a used BSA Starfire 250 which was similar to the Triumph. I traveled all over New Mexico on that with K70 Dunlops, the knobby of the time. I'm 58 now with a DR650, 800XC, and a ST2 Ducati and wouldn't mind adding a smaller single or an improved 650 to the stable. I had one of the first 800's in New Mexico, putting money down sight unseen, and haven't been disappointed. I'd do the same with a Triumph single. GO TRIUMPH!
