Come on the Thrux...

It’ll fit well with the nostalgia theme and be just like the good old days...

A bunch of oily Norton riders kicking the tyres of some new oriental:

“Look at it... not a proper bike... Ha! not even got a kick start... not a real engine; doesn’t even rattle... way too fast... no oil leaks; bet they forgot to put oil in it ha, ha... way too reliable, real bikers want to tinker... never catch on... made out of old plastic and coke cans you know... bloody Thai crap...”
You won't be lonely, I know of another Thruxton that will be there...

.... and the Triumph owner smiles as the Norton lads pull into the gas station knowing that he still has 20+ miles left in the tank.... stupid Norton tank, all skirt and no knickers lol
Not sure about that...
The tank seems a perfect design to me... range is perfectly designed to match pain thresholds...

Hello Richard , Does the Portugal flag represent where you currently are ? Or what country you are registered from ? Just wondering , I thought your flag was England .

Hi Tony,
The flag is where you are currently posting from, Nigel (Fast Eddie) had a Stars and Stripes whilst sending posts during his R66 run - he is definitely a Brit! Stuart had an Iske of Man flag whilst at the classic TT.

Crap picture, but you get the idea. Created from scratch by 'er in doors' Mrs 2015SF. It's even colour coordinated with my bike. You just got to love some folks!

Next planned outing will be M/C Live at the NEC on 17 Nov (sans bike) to view the Atlas. Hope to catch up with any of you also attending then.

Sorry to say chaps, but a family commitment had taken priority on the 23rd.

Shame really as I wanted to show off my new tank to y’all ...
