Tartan Triumph

Up yer kilt laddie!

– north of the Tweed you’ll get a draughty headwind if the tartan blaws awry. But you’ll look braw dae’n it.

Orange is not the only Fruit

Start the week off with a shot of Vitamin Cee

– Bonneville with a fiery tank and surly gal. Warmer weather ahead as the season develops. Fresh days ahead.

Red Hot Chilli Pepper

Flaming Triumph

A red frame does look smart on an early seventies Bonneville. The large oil filled frame gives weight to the accent color.

Equinox

All things being equal…

– vernal days as we head into longer days and warmer weather. A sunny Sunday is expected tomorrow so the Tiger is getting readied. Here’s the new Bonneville model for release this year. Continually classic.

Long armed

Chopper

– someone had a mind to give their early seventies oil-in-frame Bonnie a conversion. Reangled and strengthened headstock; extra foot on the fortis; ape hangers; fishtail pipes; and a sissy bar. it doesn’t look half bad… though I wouldn’t want to corner with it. Big desert roads out west.

Of trunk and branch

Tree of Life

– pre-unit Bonnie that has been tastefully fettled for action along a rural trail. Looks like a proper bike.

Shady Alcove

In a dusty corner

Sits an unused Bonneville

– just needing a dust-off, lubrication, gas up and a quiet winding road.

Of Mountains & Glaciers

Snow & Ice

– some Triumph Bonneville owner taking his steed over a wintry mountain pass. We’re heading into minus degrees Fahrenheit windchills for the next few days so a balmy alpine col wouldn’t be too bad…

Feline Good!

The Cats Whiskers

– this chap has found an ideal perch to view the world from. Our furry companions always find the best locations for rest and recuperation.

Oh Tannenbaum

Festivus for the rest of us…

– as Frank Costanza would celebrate, with a seasonal gathering around an aluminum pole, allowing family and friends the annual opportunity to air grievances. A classic Triumph is surely a better focus than a pipe. “Serenity Now!”

SK-T120R

Bic scribble

– as promised here’s a new sketch of one of Matt Triumphs. This is the Bonnie which I’ve had for 10 years bought from a West Chicago biker gang as a ‘project’. Well she looks quite picturesque now.

In the dunes

Adieu warm days

– a week shy of Thanksgiving sees us in the transition of seasons. Cooler weather and shorter days means wrapping up and making sure your clearly visible in duller lights or low suns.
