New to the forums
« on: September 12, 2012, 12:17:44 pm »
Hello all,
Well I have been watching the forums for quite a while and finally decided to get out of my corner and be sociable. My name is Dusty Moulton and I am 60 years old & I live in Loudon. I bought my first bike when I was 13.  I just recently purchased a Triumph 2012 Purple Street Triple. I wanted a Triple R but none of the dealers had one or could get one for a while. So I went with the above-mentioned purple triple. I love it. For as long as I have owned bikes in my life, I very honestly have not had a bike as fun and well constructed as the Triumph.
 The headers have been Ceramic coated by Jet96Hot for only $200. Money very well spent . That was done after I gutted the cat then had it welded back up after everything was removed, that also helped the sound. I really like the looks of the headers plus they don't put out as much heat to roast my scrawny butt.
One of the next projects on line is to take the rims while I have them off to put on some new Michelin's.
I will have them powder coated Pearl White or Gold. I am thinking white will look better with my theme. Now I am going to rebuild my seat to something much more comfortable, and then have new seat covers built. My favorite place to ride is the Dragon, I learn more each time I ride it. And my times improve greatly each time I run it.
I ran it hard yesterday and am paying for it today with sore muscles all over, one of the benefits of getting old.

Best regards to all,
Dusty

Howdy --- Saw your post. Putting you on the master list (not all are on it, but I try to update when I see info to do it -- Post Name, Real Name, Location).

Looks like you are not too close to my location (Boyds Creek). I do a lot of rides (Mostly Tue, Thu, Sun Morning). See Events and Rides and Ride Reports for PAULRIDES (post name)  Name is Paul.

Hope you can join in someday (get an idea of the rides on the Ride Report section).

Good group here for the most part.  ;D

I would love to get in on some of your rides & MOST especially to meet some new folks.
I have attached a photo of the removal of the headers for the up coming work.
Ride safe

Welcome to the family! There are tons of awesome people here. Judging by the pics and reports, (as I have yet to be able to go on one myself) Paul has some of the best rides there are. Given the chance you should try one out. He gives great detail before hand for appropriate planning :) Look forward to learning more about as time progresses.
And as said by another...everyone lives pics! If there is anything you need help with, don't be afraid to ask :)
It's not about what you ride or how you ride it, but it's about the amout of joy that riding brings you while you're doing it.

Darn -- kawidoll, making my head hurt (swelled up so much after reading your post). I thank you.

Details bore some and a lot do not read them (they cannot complain if they do not)  ;)

I do not ride with anyone anyplace without knowing the plan as have done that and been disappointed before.  Too late, too many stops, too far, too much BS, I am too old to be aggravated.   :groan

Like the plaque said in the B-Day picture I posted of Betty and me (Some times I wake Grumpy up and sometimes I let him sleep).  >:D

Actually, I am not a Grumpy Guy (just like to know on rides -- when, where, and how long). 
Ride Country Roads - a lot. :-)

Welcome! That's the first purple triple I've seen and I think white would really set it off. Look forward to meeting you.

Welcome to the asylum!

Speaking of adding white to the bike, I think you may have contacted me a few months ago about doing exactly that. Was that you?

Well I think you found my add on CL. My shop is called X1 Moto Werks. We talked about adding some white decals to accent the purple. I remember talking to a more experienced gentleman about his riding and that he loves his purple tripple. There are not many purple tripples around.

Hey, I don't see any problems, since I also have a warped sense of humor, sometimes too much and some folks think I am serious & don't understand that I am just kidding around. And that I only do that with folks that I consider friends.
I am looking forward to some hand to hand combat in the intellectual arena.
Just watch out I may just get one up on you.  :31
