I looked up my my paper work at noon today and Sid the H#*l with it I am going to take the 995 Triumph Thunderbird 900 on a good shake down ride as it was 23 degrees C out side. This twenty six year old Triumph started right up and settled down to a nice rhythm. Went out to. Friends average who suddenly passed several years ago to do some reflextion! Going out and back, the Bird idled long as happy as a meadow lark there and back. This again is one of the nicest handling/sOlof motorcycle that I’ve ridden (75 years old now) an I am glad I was able to salvage her from the scrap bin as the previous owner claimed the engine was seized. Bought her sight un seen and spent last winter sorting out the engine (sprag clutch issue) and updated and renewed everything that needed to be done. Only regret I had was when I had her apart didn’t update the transmission is a six (6) speed rather than a five (5) speed. Oh well!
here is a photo I took earlier this afternoon while enjoying the warm fall weather.77E97CB9-3082-400D-A85D-342AFD234D27.jpeg
Gotta love my Whoopie Cushion to raise my ass so that the old walking sticks get some comfort
