    That is just awesome. Great color scheme; tank is just like the '66. Didn't know anyone was doing this. Saw some neat custom Triumphs at the Long Beach show this weekend; I'll post some photos later.

    Thanks for telling us about this place.

    No problem. I always enjoy seeing the bike scene on your side of the water. Nice to be able to pass something on for a change.

    Windy corner had a Scrambler in the workshop last time I was in. They are giving it the 60s retro look. It looks great and should appear on their website before long.

    Some lovely bikes there. The Triumph roadsters are not my thing, but I can see why people like them.

    This thread reminds me how much I miss my Bonnie, she was a thing of beauty.

    The first Triumph I really put some miles on was this one:

    [​IMG]

    Giddyupgirl and I rode a few thousand miles around the Alps, and the Isle of Man. Great bike, that Trophy III 900. After returning home, I purchased this:

    [​IMG]

    The Centennial Edition (2002) Daytona 955i. I put on the Powermax, and a few other goodies. Unbelievable power. At Road America, the only bike to pass me was a GSXR1000. Top speed: 172 on the front straight (uphill!)

    Fun only for short runs, and track days, I needed something more comfortable for commuting. Enter Tiger #1

    I put some good miles on this one, and absolutely loved it. It did have a charging issue, so I traded it on on this one year ago:

    Since it's got an unlimited mileage, 2yr warranty, I'm going to ride the crap out of this one. Only 15k miles this year, Alaska bound in '08! :clap

    I rode the Scrambler too, thinking I'd like one. I did like it, but it was a little low on power for my likes. Great bikes. I too love Triumphs!! Especially, those lovely triple engines...

    I am gonna have a hard time trying not to think about that. You have a beautiful motorcycle. Is that parcel grid a Triumph accessory?

    Gotta throw in here.
    Bought 'er at 28K this past April. This is the state it was in (fantastic). The saddle bags are held on by the high tech method of bungee's and ass.
    Now winter is here and the mods have started. Done= Oil cooler guard, gaiters, bafflectomy. To do= M-bars, braided lines, and more.

    Back in the day Triumph referred to it as a parcel grid.
