back story 1st.

a year ago a freind of mine bought a used can am...practically new. my g/f mentioned she would not mind having one to ride herself back then.

well a league team mate bought a new can am this week she is a 60 year old woman. my g/f again mentioned she would like to have one.

so i am out riding around on my bike today ...going no where in particular and drop by the can am dealer. the manager imediately remembered me although he had not seen me in over a year since they quit dealing with victory.

i told him i was just looking at the can ams and did not want to waste him time since i was just browsing. he went on to a couple who apparently were serious about a see doo.

after sitting on a few i found one that was a reasonable price but did not like the low bars..almost like sitting on a sport bike. had another one sitting next to it with higher bars so i asked a sales person if they interchange..of course he had no idea if they would or not. later on the sales manager told me he could custom fit bars and pegs to suit my g/f.

well here is why i started this thread. i got to looking at the triumphs. i gotta say i fell in love with the thunderbird. if it was 2'' lower it would fit me perfect. now i gotta figure out how to finagle the old lady outa wanting a can am so i can get the triumph.

i can't afford any new bike right now but i can dream can't i ? don't worry ...aint getting rid of my vegas but would not mind having that thunderbird as a stable mate for it. :D

I looked at alot of bikes when I decided I had outgrown my Suzuki M50 and the Thunderbird was at the top of my list. Beautiful bike but like everything else out there it did not fit me (34" inseam) and to set it up for light touring but the price well into the upper teens. I was lucky when I found my XR, fit me great without modifications and got it with harbags, winshield, crash bars, and passenger backrest for 13k, cheapest thing out there at the time.

Funny how that works... My wife wanted to look at the Can-Am Spider at the locale dealership which also carries Victory. By the time all was said and done, I rode out with my new XCT. But she started it in motion by saying she liked the looks of the XCT...
