Here she is doing the Parade Lap at Grattan Raceway on Labor Day


My wife decided the 675 just wasn't comfortable enough for the kind of riding she sees herself doing in the future, so we added another Trumpet to the fold...



She rode it home in the cold, and wet, and had a smile the whole time.




Damn near time for a bigger garage...

Just finished mine... it sure is nice being able to just roll a bike out without having to move a bunch in the way.





So far it's a dead even tie between Triumph, Honda and Suzuki but Jodie's seriously looking at the Street Triple R so that may put Triumph in the lead where they belong.

I like my 08 Speed Triple. Arrow slip-ons. Jet Black. The sound. Looks. Uniqueness in these parts. I'll keep it for quite some time.....but if the Aprilia RSV4 Tuono isn't as ugly as I think it's gonna be up front, there may be a changing of the guard. Sigh.

I know what you mean about the exclusivity. I have a Speed Triple, and it usually gathers a crowd whenever I go to any kind of bike event, regardless of what other motorcycles are there. My S3 is mostly stock. It's funny. I think it may annoy the BMW dealer when this happens.

Picked up this '03 955i Daytona.

That is a very hot bike. I love the 2nd gen 955i triples. I'd rather have one then a japanese liter....not as much as my 675, but close.

I can see me coming back to the Triumph fold next spring. The new Rocket 3 makes me grin just looking at it.

That was the end of a nice piece of road where I did let it rip...a little too much since I opened it up just as we crested a little bump I didn't see at the same time passing this old fart on a Guzzi ...so the front end did come up a little
