    Actually, It isn't a Triumph, rather, a Yamaha XS650:deal . The pipes appear to be Omar's mile pipes, and the tank appears to be either from a Yamaha XS1100 or Kawasaki KZ1000/KZ1100.

    The "beautiful" yamaha indicators give it away, if not the cast wheels. Those bloody indicators are stil gettin garound onthe 250 viragos........there must be a junk yard full of them somewhere, or runway blokes are using them to signal planes in.

    Been there few times....
    I'm an over-the-road truck driver and only get home every 3-4 weeks, so time off is limited and track day and racing are on weekends. That limits my "bar hopping" greatly.

    I would ride mine to the track. Closest that I'd ride was 120 miles each way. My favorite was 180-ish each way, so I'd add a few miles and take a scenic ride home.:D

    My 1960s Monkey Wards 125 cafe racer. I'm hoping to ride this in this year's California Giro. It's a provisional bike for that event but I don't have the money to buy a bike that normally qualifies. After I finish my lap round the world on my Ducati, then maybe I'll get one that qualifies. I'll post a picture of my round the world bike in the vintage thumpers section in a bit.
