Just a quick intro. Been a biker since 1975, so very much a silver rider. Left th Royal Navy in 2006 and at the time riding a Yamaha thundercat. Got a job in Kingsbridge which is 30 miles away from Plymouth UK , on some fine country roads. Wife said, the bike goes, you'll kill yourself. Now in 2018, I got the 'itch' again so started looking at a triumph . The good lady told me she would never go on that. A little later we saw a silverwing pull up. Driver and passenger both around our age (60 ish) . The good lady "now that I will go on" . So a nice silverwing was purchased and I love it.

Silvercellist and mohawkwarrior, welcomehe abord the board to both of you. Silvercellist, I strongly recommend picking up a paper copy of the Factory Service Manual. If you're patient, sometimes a member here sells one or you can pick one up on CL. I buy Factory Service Manuals for all of my vehicles as I like to "write in" side notations in the actual manual that I use for future reference. i.e. things like wrench sizes, torque specs, shortcuts etc. where the manual doesn't stipulate which is quite often.

It would be less confusing to post a new intro and not have two people on the same post. This old guy is easily and often confused.
I sent a request to the admins to split the posts.
