I am bereft..........
« on: June 18, 2021, 07:53:09 pm »
I sold my Speed Triple this morning, so the Trophy is now my one horse stable.  The Trophy is the first motorcycle I've had that does everything so well I don't feel like I need one or two others.  I bought the Speed Triple 8 months after the Trophy and sold it with 7700 miles, while the Trophy has 43,000.  If I'm being honest, my reflexes and reactions really aren't up to the task of riding the Speed Triple in the manner I prefer anymore, and the high pegs were becoming a bit onerous.  Can't stop the march of time I suppose, but my insurance went down and I have more room to lay out parts and pieces the next time I service the Trophy.

Your Dana will put your motorcycles and travel bags at your front door. In addition, she will change the lock on the house.

Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.

The "one in / one out" rule has been applied to the bikes as well as handbags and shoes  :015:

I have found a way around this though, collect parts (when asked I can honestly say it's just parts) and then build one  :007:
