Question for Black Tiger.
Why is this man standing in the ford, who is he and was he chasing the sheep?

That man was standing in the ford trying to save you from getting too wet. Having been first to take the plunge, I knew the best route but you still went wrong under supervision.

I was terrified and took the line as far away from the giant man jumping up and down waving his arms at me as possible. I see what you done to those sheep and wanted none of it...

Good day though - despite the wet part.

As it's a photo thread I better post one.

Tank Bag Thoughts ......

Thoughts or opinions everyone?

I would say that the big Triumph logo on the side means that it's a Triumph bag.

It actually looks a lot like a Famsa .... and, ironically, the logos are both ovals .....

I couldn't make out that it said Triumph...maybe we both need glasses.

Blacktiger, you seem like a real dick, you know that?

Do now, I guess.

Yeah, it's the Triumph branded bag, dunno who makes it, got it with the bike from the previous owner. I can look at it and see if there's any other marks on it besides Triumph.
