The last of the Prize Winners for the Christmas Cheer Prize Draw has now been in contact and we can confirm that they are Tony (and Jen) Hounshell. Tony and Jen are TOMCC USA branch members and live down in the Sunshine State of Florida. They have a lovely story to tell so read on.
"My wife and I purchased our 2014 Thruxton 900 2 years ago in Tampa Florida. I had been looking at other well-known motorcycles until my wife suggested let's check out some Triumphs to really get the lifestyle cafe bike we were looking for. After a quick ride on the Thruxton 900 it was a done deal! She is so Nimble and easy to ride. She is our weekend beach cruiser. I have removed all factory lights and replaced everything with slim LED lights. We also took the exhaust off in order for my wife to have a better ride. I put shorter pipes on it so she does not have to worry about her feet. Women!!"
"My wife bought me the TOMCC membership for a Christmas present this year 2017. She was very excited to find a association for the Triumph Motorcycles. And then while looking at the website early December, she saw the entry for this and entered us in it. We won before Christmas and she could not tell me because it was all a surprise that she had gotten me the membership! It took everything she had to not let go of her secret! This also includes being on the Facebook page for TOMCC USA. Everybody was keeping it a secret so that I would not get an email or any type of notification until Christmas!"
"We are particularly fond of the Snowdon box. It would give us that vintage Cafe Racer look on the back of the bike without taking away from the rest of the bike. It would make a great accent! My wife is already saying let's get this done so that she can put beach and gogo gear on the bike when we go ride vs in her backpack!"
"So happy that we won! We look forward to more events and meeting fellow members through TOMCC. And building up the TOMCC USA branch!"
