Finally got my 3A out of winter hibernation after fluid changes all around, lubed all zerks, then rebuild clutch master that was leaking. Hardest part was R&R of the m/c. It needed a new line from the m/c to slave connection - too tight to remove so I cut the old one out after finding a new one in my stash as well as a new kit to rebuild the m/c.

So yesterday was my first ride, only my 2nd Father's Day after finding out I had a grown son in 2017. My son lives out of state but he was with me in the empty passenger seat. WooHoo x 2. Love you Jacob!

Happy Father's Day to all. Now I know too.

Congrats Peter on *both* the discoveries.

And some day, may Jacob share the ride with you in person.

Thanks Tom! Jacob and I bonded right away and became part of each others life. He's been here, riding in the 3A and this summer, I'll teach him the "stick."

btw - He's my only child and at my age 66 is a real gift!

I know what it's like to ride alone. My family went to South America to visit relatives while I stayed home to work.
They even took the dog with them. So I was out Sunday in the TR3 with my invisible friend. Had a great drive though
and got lots of comments from people on the street.

Cool, now you have someone to pass the car down to! Remember, God frowns on selling Triumphs prior to, well, death...
