New owner - Northamptonshire UK

Hi All, 


Got my new Tenere just before Christmas, just working through getting it set up just as I want it.
Currently healing from a broken spine and subsequent surgery with more ops on the horizon so really focussing on getting the bike as usable for me as possible.

Glad to be on the forum 🤘

Welcome from Arizona.  Sorry to hear about the medical struggles,  hopefully you'll mend quickly as there's lots of iron in your garage that needs exercising.

my ‘67 Triumph - article here: 


Mark Drury is a vintage Triumph nut, and this sharp Daytona 500 desert sled is proof.



my ‘58 triumph - article here: 


Even if we had a couple of modern Triumphs in the dream garage, we’d have to park a vintage one right alongside. And this Tiger T110 restomod would do just fine.

Then there’s:

my 750 triumph chop project, my ‘38 triumph T80 sand racer project, a 1972 Yamaha AT2, triumph mountain cub project, the wife’s CB125F, another AT2 in boxes and a few other bits. lots of pics on my Instagram if you’re interested buddy - https://instagram.com/retrogrademechanica?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=

Awesome garage full there. Beautiful and works of art.


I think you'll like the Tenere and looks like it has a few visible nice mods too. It's an awesome machine, that can be made even better than it came from the factory.


Get well soon.
