It is amazing how many Doors songs go through my head while riding.
The older I get, the more I appreciate Jim Morrison and Robert Pirsig.
Learning to listen...and hear.

To our solitude discussion, I would like to add that silence speaks a language of only one verb.
One verb would make me very happy !

The fly by wire throttle took some getting used to but by the end of the weekend I loved it. It makes a very cool sound and will devour Mexican roads like a big plate of tamales!

Felicidades! RW

Nice bike! Triumph triples are sweet.

SR. The cast wheels say "not an XC" to me but I don't keep up.

Not the XC version - those have spoked wheels and seem to be available only in a flat green color.

Is there still a Triumph dealer in the RGV?

I dunno PirateJohn ...but that bike pic was at Lonestar. ;) I like the matte green if it is the same as the paint on the 800XC. Looks good.

Thanks!

Big Triumph has been on my short list of desireable bikes although at the moment it looks like there are other priorities.
