    Another Hi from Coffs Harbour.

    Hi everyone, my name is Steve & like my good mate Vossy 53 I've just bought my first Blackbird. In fact we bought them 1 day apart. After 17 years of new Triumphs I've just bough an immaculate 2004 blue Blackbird with just 40K on it. I have to say it's been quite a wrench changing brands but the Blackbird is the probably the best bike I've owned since a 1995 Triumph Trophy, the 955i Daytona was great but an outright sports bike & not at all suited to touring.
    I love the way it delivers its' power right through across the range, its' torque & everything about it to date.
    A group of us toured from Coffs Harbour via the coast to Adelaide in 2011 & are planning Tassie in 2015. Like my mate Vossie53 I need to get a set of pillion foot-peg extenders for my wife before any distance riding though. Currently looking at getting some manufactured as I reckon we need at least 75m.m; -unless anyone can point me to some "off the shelf ones" as I haven't been able to fins any to date?

    Welcome Steve, I am enjoying the bird after 8months. Originally bought it to sell and finance a z1900motor build, but I just can't part with it.

    Hi Ya Matey, welcome aboard. Try Jaws, John, for the pillion extenders, got them for the Mrs. They drop the pegs by about an inch and 1/2, mind how fit them,cos their boots will scuff the pipes.

    from the Great White North!
    UNDERSTEER is when you hit the wall with the front of the bike.
    OVERSTEER is when you hit the wall with the rear.
    HORSEPOWER is how fast you hit the wall.
    TORQUE is how far you take the wall with you.
