Hello All

    Hello All


    Came here in search of ride outs as I moved to Mass from the UK in 2018 and purchased myself a Street Triple, English guy on an English bike in New England, the stars aligned.

    I proudly raced R6's on the national stage back home on all the beautiful tracks round the UK has to offer. Looking to do a few track days up at Palmer, as from my searching up online that's all mass has to offer. Please tell me I'm wrong.

    All the best

    Nice welcome! Nice bike, what year? Post some pics! They’re worth 1000 words

    I had a 2012 Speed Triple, unfortunately didn’t keep it long and only put about 1k miles on it.

    Triumphs have shot up in asking price!

    I can remember the speed triple was like 10k in 2007, now they are what, 15k?

    I want either an air cooled scrambler, or a Speed Twin now.

    Massachusetts only has Palmer, but in close by CT there is Thompson, NH has NHMS (the only place in New England with a road race series), Club Motorsport in Tamworth and Canaan. NY has NYST and in NJ is NJMP (more racing).

    Five of the seven smallest states in the union are in New England, and Maine is 39th, so searching by state can be deceiving.

    Others here have already given you some of the tracks and track day organizations. In addition, if you go to MotorSportsReg.com, you can find motorcycle events within a radius of your choosing.https://www.motorsportreg.com/calend...ycle-track-day

    Finding a Triumph dealer you want to work with might be the greater challenge.....

    Oh, and pertinent to your login: https://www.mass.gov/locations/bash-...lls-state-park
