Of Mountains & Glaciers

Snow & Ice

Feline Good!

The Cats Whiskers

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!”

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.

How much is that doggy in the window?

Old Hardware Store

– on our return drive from a weekend away we stopped at the hipster town of Three Oaks MI. In one of the dusty window displays at an old hardware store stands a couple of vintage bikes. A 750cc Triumph Bonneville and a Norton Commando. I’ll have a 1/2lb bag of 6d nails please!

Vintage voyagers

We dusted off, gassed up, and rolled out the old Bonnie’s for a nice Saturday afternoon ride up north. Leaves are emerging as spring temperatures rise and the sun shines.
