Triumph Bonneville Ride: Episode 1 - Close Encounters of the Amish Kind

I love my big scooter (Piaggio MP3 500) with automatic trans, but I've been wanting to ride a "real" motorcycle to see if I can shift like I used to when I had a Suzuki T500 back in grad school. Last Saturday, I rented a Triumph Bonneville at Country Road Scooter Rentals in Bird-in-Hand, PA and rode for over 4 hours in warm sunny Lancaster county.

Here is my first Episode, where I mount the bike at Country Road, shift for the first time and encounter the Amish at least 6 times. Sorry for the wind noise - I couldn't even hear the sweet sound of that classic British bike.
