^^^Who is the brave soul riding the 500 CC Triumph ?


We have three professional musicians who show up regularly.  One plays in the Pittsburgh symphony, one is a teacher/academic in the school system, and one plays in a regionally famous reggae band.  No surprise that the Triumph belongs to the rastaman.  :)  He has other similar bikes-- they run great but are definitely "unrestored".

We had modern bikes, too.  I covet one of these:

He lost the run of himself.

My day is going great- I just got home with several years of Classic Bike magazines, free via Craigslist.  After I arrived for pickup, the generous man named Carl also gave the bound & complete volumes of the first three years of Classic Bike.   Not much overlap with the few issues I bought and still have from back then.  Very cool.



 

Edit-   Well, hot damn! Posted the above around Noon. It's about 4:30pm now.  Carl just emailed to say he found three more bundles of Classc Bike magazines and he'll bring them to town for me on his next trip.   Very cooler....

 ^^^That's pretty cool Clint .

 Gave about 90 copies of CB from the '80's and early '00's to a friend , not sure he has ever read them all .

We should probably look to the Mayans for advice on how to deal with shortages of gasoline and TP . Those folks had chronic shortages of both.

So far, my favorite thing found is this cut away drawing of the V8 Guzzi by Bill Bennett in the Fall 1978 issue (magazine #3). I've been trying to find it elsewhere online, possibly as a poster but so far no luck.   






Maybe someone here knows of a source?

I had a long day at the office ending at 8:30 with two contentious zoom hearings.  I rode home in the dark and a light rain over empty streets on my 750 Commando.  No one to hear the engine rip but me. I felt 18. I wish it could have lasted longer.
