    OMG, I remember all those bikes, the 450 (torsion bar valve springs) and the Dream Touring when I got my motorcycle license in 1966. And now those damn things are antiques. icon_sad.gif

    I'll post some pics when I get home to my iMac in a few days, my iPad won't work with Photobucket.

    I used to ride, but the apartment I'm in now doesn't have a safe place to keep a bike (bike theft is terrible down here - last one got stolen).

    My last best bud had one of those huge Harley's with the barcalounger back seat, very comfy. I had my own speakers and an intercom to my bud. I freaking loved him taking me around on that thing, especially into the California mountains. It's even better than the convertible. I've only ridden with him though. Never drove one myself. Closest I came to that was minibikes when I was a kid and scooters on Key West.

    I've still got my first bike. I tried to sell it a few times, but nobody wanted such a small old thing. And now it's worth more as "a collectors item." I still like it. Poor thing now it has to carry about 40 lbs. more cargo than it used to when I was a twink. (Or maybe 50 lbs, now that I'm too old wise to ride it in cut-offs and birkenstocks icon_lol.gif

    Someone clue me in: how do I get the actual image in the post (ugh). I actually have a degree in computer science, but it's from the days of ForTran.

    one of our clients is the city dealer/maintenance specialist for Triumph (also Piaggio, vespa, ducati). I was going to have it maintained by the dealer. Bear in mind, my motorcycling days are still five years off since i need to buy a utility vehicle first for work icon_cry.gif

    Hold on there a second, Junior; I thought Steve rode a Scrambler with two pipes up high on one side.

    My friend, you will be missing the greatest joy of motorcycling: the tinkering. Go read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. There's a lot of truth in that book. I enjoy working on my ride as much as riding it.

    actually, IIRC, in "The Great Escape" he rode a Trophy TR6, which is the bike this one is designed to resemble

    I'm already in the process of restoring a '97 MX5. I've got enough tinkering on my hands right now, heheh. Maybe later on in life when i have more spare time i'll tinker on other things, but i barely have time for one project vehicle, heheh.

    Thx for the technical assist.

    The bike lives up to her look, that's for sure. 138 horsepower and about 670 lbs full of gas and with me on her. That's a better ratio than a Formula One. Sometimes I swear she's gonna pull my arms right out of my sockets. Kinda wish she had a windshield though.

    Have your buddy throw in a few extra rectifiers: my Triumph riding friends seem to blow through them.
