Sorry to be the first to say this Coconut. You really do have way too much spare time. But thanks all the same. Either get a girl friend or a second job. Come to think of it, if you do the former you may have to do the latter as well. :164: :164:  :821: :158:

Despite “Retiring” 6 years ago, I still have 2 paid jobs,
and after 3 wives I doubt I would ever be able to trust another !

Sorry Noggin, but that one does't appear anywhere in the variety
of official Triumph Trophy ( 2012 onwards ) publications,
so it doesn't meet the criteria for an entry onto the list,
... otherwise it would be listed shortly after "RTFM" !   :745:
