Rode the Bonneville home today! A friend from work gave me a ride down to the dealer, and I rode the 50 or so miles home. A bit chilly, but manageable -- and not snowing (as it was in the morning). The new bike is safely ensconced in the garage next to the Tunebug.

Now it's time for some warm weather!

I won't do that, but it will keep me sane as I fumble through all the work I've got to do on Tunebug. I'm going to be very busy this spring.

By the way, this Triumph motor is a sweet one. Smooth and very torquey. If you're ever on the fence about adding one to your stable -- just go and do it!

Way to go Drew,

I thought you were holding off until Tunebug was finished, please keep your concentration in the right direction :wink:

I just can't be without a bike, Pat. Won't keep me from finishing the Tunebug, just gives me something to do between projects. :smile:

Nice!

I was sitting on my thumper (500 Ascot) last weekend thinking, "Why don't I use this more often?"

I gotta get out on mine.

I've taken 2 short after-work rides so far. It's still a bit cold, but manageable for 45 minutes or so. So good to be back on a bike, and I'm really liking this one.

Way to do Drew

I miss the two wheels, but will not ride one in the city.

Nice ride, Drew!

Keep the shiny side up, wear all your gear, ride AGATT - "All The Gear, All The Time".

Enjoy!
