I am probably the happiest guy on this planet….I bought an 04 Thruxton bout a month ago and am loving every minute that I am on it. Now you would think why is this guy jumping up and down for that; after all it is just a Triumph…..
I have wanted to get a bike with Parallel twins for a long long time. The love affair with the parallels started when someone I know back in India bought an old BSA back to life. The sound of the twins firing at idle was sweet music to my ears. The day I first heard that bike I thought to myself man I would never be able to afford a bike let alone something like that. This was a good 18 years ago when I was in the university studying to be a Mechanical Engineer just like a few million other fellow Indians were in that year. Going to school wearing hand me downs and a pair of flip flops for shoes I had never dreamt that one day I would be sitting in Canada sipping Starbucks and riding a Triumph Thruxton. Well here I am doing exactly that. Today I just realized how lucky I am to be living here and achieving what I thought was impossible back in the day.
The bike is everything that I imagined it to be and then some. It is the sweetest looking thing on two wheels and a pleasure to ride, sounds like a million bucks and best of all it is MINE…
Hope you all love your rides the way I do mine. Cheers.
