I've been thinking.....

Thinking...a very dangerous thing to do. Anyway, now I'm skint courtesy of HM Tax inspectors and can't afford a new bike, I started thinking maybe a few little modifications would help me feel happier about keeping the Triumph. So there is a business quite close to me that make and fit modified seat units for Thunderbirds, they really clean up the rear end and make the bike look a little swoopier. The only disadvantage I can see is that there's nowhere for luggage, so I'd have to carry my sandwiches in a backpack. What do you think? Oh and here's the website

Pristine but slightly boring Thunderbird

Plans delayed

Due to an unanticipated turn of events, the purchase of a new bike has been delayed – Her Majesty’s Government and myself have had a slight disagreement over the amount of tax I should pay this year, and despite some, ahem, creative accountancy, all plans for new purchases are on the backburner.

On the positive side, the Triumph is back home with oil leak cured, and my beard is growing luxuriously voluminous, as you can see from the poor quality snap attached.
