New to the PNW

Good evening all,

My name is Ed and I recently moved out to Seattle (my job is opening two new stores and I have always loved this area) from Raleigh/ Durham area. I am super excited to explore this side of the US. I have been riding on and off since 2000. I picked it back up in 2014 and now I couldn't live without it. I enjoy everything from a short to multi day rides.

Bike list:
1997 Yamaha FZR600
2006 Suzuki SV650
1980 Honda CM400
2011 Suzuki TU250
2014 Triumph Bonneville
2015 Triumph Tiger 800 XRX **
2017 Triumph Street Twin **
** Still own

Please feel free to ask my anything, looking forward to being part of this Forum.

Hi Ed, welcome to the PNW Moto family!

Nice collection of motorcycles over the years... how do you like your Triumph 800XRX?

Thanks everyone!

I love the Tiger! I was unsure to go with the xcx or the xrx. I choose the xrx because I ride about 90% on road. The few times I have ventured off road, it's been more capable than my skill level. It's proven a good touring bike and it is zippy/ fun enough to hit a curvy road. The riding position has been pretty awesome as well, last fall I did a 3 day trip averaging 8hrs a day without issue.

Welcome to the great Pacific Northwest! Welcome to pnwmoto.

I lived in Hillsborough NC and worked at UNC hospital for three and half years. My wife and I originally moved out there for a change, but after a couple of years, we really wanted to get back here. Had the chance and came back in 2001. Won't leave here again. Nothing like the Pacific Northwest.

Have any pictures of your motorcycles?

I have only had the Street Twin for a short time, here are a couple photos from my 2016 with the Tiger.
