Just checking into the New Members category. I traded my high mileage Vstrom DL1000 for a Triumph Tiger GT900 and four days later got hit head on by a pick up truck. I decided to purchase a used 2017 AT manual with low mileage. Really enjoying it so far!

Sorry to hear of your accident, Thumper. Glad you survived—hopefully, unscathed. And, congrats on the AT! Welcome to the forum.

Hey @Thumper - does it appear you weren't on the bike at the time of the Tiger's demise? :oops:

Nevertheless, you write well - welcome to the Forum!

Where is this 2017 AT you write about? What does she look like? :unsure:

I was on the bike. It happened on a rainy day at an intersection near my home. The driver overshot his turn and skidded into me as I was just starting to move. I wear good gear and although I was thrown from the bike, I only received minor injuries. My Triumph is at a dealer being repaired now. I am thinking of taking this AT and the Triumph and trading in for a new Africa Twin in the near future.
My writing comes from years as an educator, which I retired from 3 years ago. Life is good!

Welcome to the forum! Now we have a Thumper and a Double Thumper. We need a Triumph Triple owner to create a Triple Thumper account now :)

LOL! Got my nickname from playing a Stand-Up bass for many years on stage. I have also worked on a few Thumpers (single cylinder) over the years.
