I just put weatherTech license plate frames on it, getting rid of the dealer plate frames lol.

Still have the aerofabb spoiler extension to install as well. That's just chilling in my place waiting for me to get some time.

Next purchase is most likely black exhaust tips since the wife is opposed to loud exhausts. For now.

my autocorrect is a ducking duck

Another Triumph from Seattle, Kirkland really...

2014 Scrambler, though I'm thinking of selling and getting either a new Speed Twin or Thruxton.

If it gets ANY louder than now, my wife will be very disappointed in me lol
After the engine/tranny mounts, she definitely noticed the noise increase from the engine. Sigh.

And I bought my Triumph from the Westchester dealership.

Nice bike! Love the matte blue! I used to live in Seattle for 5 years, down in South Lake Union (amazon land). My good buddy in Seattle is the one who turned me onto Triumphs. He's on the new bobber now. Love these bikes!

Speed twins are great but those Thrux... mmmph! Yes please!
