Hi All,

I'm looking forward to the CTX1300. Sat on one at the DC Motorcycle show and was very impressed - can't wait for a test ride.

I currently ride a 2010 Triumph Thunderbird Limited edition Red Haze 1700.

Nothing wrong with having 2 or more ponies in the stable, as long as you have room for them. I don't and feel like I'd be neglecting one or the other so it's easier for me to only have one.


Correction: WE have one each. My wife has her Metropolitan that she rides to work at her school. She's a third grade teacher and all the El Ed kids, especially the 4th and 5th grade boys, think she's really neat when they see her climb on that scoot and take off. I only have a 2 car garage but we park the 2 cages in such a way toward the center and the bikes one either side so that we can get any of them out per our choice for the day. :D

Are you going to keep the your Triumph once you get the CTX1300, or are you going to sell it or trade it in in order to reduce the price a bit?

I also can't wait for a test drive. Should be a good time!

Welcome to the forum too!

I will most likely trade it in, unless the trade in price is low, then I will sell privately.

I love the Triumph, but it time for a change...

I always trade because I'm too impulsive/lazy to take the time and effort to sell it myself. And I don't ride anywhere near enough to justify more than one horse in the stable at a time. Not to mention the hassle of dealing with the flotsam and jetsam of humanity that could come answering an ad at any time. When you trade, for the difference in what you could get if you sold outright, you get to drop off the bike you no longer want and drive away on the one you do want, end of story.

I really like the Thunderbird, too; it was probably the most un-Harley cruiser available at the time, it's smooth, gobs of low-end torque, comfortable, and handles well for a 740+ lb bike. Oh yeah, and a great looker to boot. But I don't think it's displaced the VTX1800 as my favorite of all the bikes I've owned. And I've only put a sad and sorry 2,200 miles on it in two seasons. If I could design exactly what I want from the ground up, the CTX1300 is that bike.

I also hate selling privately because of people who waste my time, always come across buyers who aren't serious of have super low ridiculous offers.
