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?
