I am about 1 hour south of Flint, just north of Detroit aong Lake St. Clair. There is a very active R.A.T. or Rider Association of Triumph in Detroit. About 25 active members. You get a free membership when you buy a new Triumph, if you are getting a used one it is bucks. They plan about 10 events throughout the year and are a great bunch of guys.

take a look at www.classiccycle.com

I have ridden allot of the current sporttourers. The ST4, ST4S, VFR and of course my ST. I rode a 98' VFR a couple years ago, a very nice bike. Really, if you want my honest opinion, I would tell your friend just to keep his current VFR. The Sprint will give you more power and a better midrange, but it handles at little bit heavier. It really would make since to keep his current steed.

I think the new VFR and Sprint ST are the way to go, if you want new. The VFR more sporting, the ST more grunt (10 more Hp over my 2001 model). The VFR is better looking, but overall, I love a triple engine. You really cant go wrong either way.
