    New bike

    Haven't been here for a while so just dropping by to say hello! I sold my FZ6 and got myself 2010 Triumph Bonneville, while, comfort level was night and day it was slacking severely on the speed department. I'm a glutton for punishment so I went out and bought a 2010 Speed Triple 15th anniversary special edition. That 3 cylinder engine is truly something else, that low end torque is a thing of beauty.

    One thing that I learned from buying this bike (not bike related at all) is to never finance a bike under someone else's name. The previous owner bought the S3 under his ex-wife's name and she will not let him refinance under his name and the only option he was given was to sell it. Great for me as I got a great deal but ****ty to be in that situation. Enough talking and here are some pics.

    Beautiful! Congratulations! @Goop just got that same style bikini for his S3.

    Nice bike! May you enjoy it happily!

    As for the last part- I'd say better to not finance a bike at all, regardless if it's on your name or not.
