I had been seriously considering the Norton 961 for quite some time. After monitoring the 961 forum and seeing the horror show that was going on trying to keep those bikes functioning, my interest in the Norton waned.
Then Triumph came out with their 1200 six speed Thruxton R and it had the Norton beat everywhere, power, handling, weight, vibration levels, price and the expectation of reliability.
So far it is even better than I had hoped.
Mounted the fairing a couple of days ago. 96 parts and 22 pages of instructions but everything fit and I think the styling is superb.

Picked up the Street Twin this morning.
Very impressed with the first ride.
Big smiley face!
