Howdy All, Greetings from Corpus Christi, Heard about this site from a guy visiting Corpus this past weekend. He is from Gonzales and rides a V-strom. This is just the kind of local Texas site I've been looking for--thanks John.
I just sold my beloved Honda ST1300 and bought something completely different--a 2011 Triumph Rocket 3 Roadster. I may be regretting this decision since the Triumph dealership is in San Antonio, and on my first service (!500! miles) I had to leave it there due to brake light staying on.:tears: Hopefully this will be a brief interuption of a long term love affair, not the first in a series of electrical gremlins.

Welcome and greetings from another CC resident. I'm sure that brake light issue will get fixed and your new Triumph will give you many miles of trouble free enjoyment. Again, welcome to TWT!

We're thinking of doing a Baffin Bay Meet 'n Greet here soon. We're on the Corpus/Kingsville/Baffin Bay thread...

update on Triumph Rocket 3: My entire wiring harness was replaced after about a month and a half in shop. Right now it runs great, but I wasn't real happy with the service at Alamo Triumph. Will probably take to Lonestar triumph in Austin. Heard some good things about them.

Welcome to TWT from a fellow Corpus resident. I take my bike to Mike Callesen here in town. He operates out of his backyard, but he's a certified Triumph mechanic. ph: 361.232.8299. He's kept my bike on the road for the past 2 or 3 years.

I was in the Valley working last week and noticed the bike shop in Pharr, F & T Valley Motor Sports, is now selling Triumphs.

I don't know anything about the dealership other than from stopping by to chat occasionally. Their website doesn't mention Triumphs, but they had a Rocket III parked outside and, I believe, a Triumph logo on the front of the building.
