I purchased my 04 Thruxton as soon as it got to the dealer. I fell in love with the look and the retro style immediately. Comfort is the biggest problem with bike, riding it for more than an hour is a ball breaker and puts a heavy strain on the lower back. It developed an oil leak after the first year wich was fixed by the dealer. Having said that I get lots of positive comments from HD owners and you are the coolest thing on the road.

Out of the box, the Thrux needs a little suspension work and a "real" exhaust sound. Other than that, it is just sweet. Handles so nimbly, with easy maneuvering around town and instant lay over for your corner carving. Power is perfect sans rush. I miss the rush sometimes but really it gives all you need for life under a ton; twist the throttle and it goes. Braking is adequate. don't know why I find it comfortable but there are aftermarket bars are available. Triumph built a minimalist cafe racer, so we will see if they put a little juice into it once Ducati starts rolling out their retro 1000cc with Ohlin cafe racers. For now, though, I am really happy with it. It's my first twin and I will never switch from that type of motor.

I still love this bike. I've made some changes that have enhanced the bike. Replaced the stock silencers with the Dunstall Style mufflers from JCWhitney. These are great because the baffles are removeable and therefore tuneable. Now this bike sounds as muscular as it looks. Second, I am using a UNI foam filter and the bike breathes a lot easier. The bars are a little low even for me and I'll probably replace those with a higher rise or angle in the near future. This is a very reliable, fun and predictable riding bike. What a great vibe, too.

Good overall bike but I'm getting killed by the low and forward clip-ons. My other bike is a CBR 600 F4 so I thought I could handle these. However, I get going a few miles and my hands get sore and my right forearm starts burning. The seat isn't so hot either. That said, I think that with some higher bars I'll like the bike a lot more. The twin is nice down low and the handling is consistently nice if you're smooth. The performance is what I wanted and expected, the build quality is good, and the appearance is even better in person than the pictures show.
