Airborne

Adrenaline Transmittal

– in this day and age when viral infection can occur through the air between us here’s a photo of a Tiger under full chat zooming through the Dales on a single lane road over the moors. I can hear the theme tune for All Creatures Great and Small when I look at this.

Jump

No shark but maybe Jaws

– with the postponement of James Bond #25 “No Time To Die” until much later in the year here’s a photo from one of the Triumph promotional events with stunt rider taking a Tiger airborne over a burly pick-up trick. Shaken not Stirred.

Mirror Mirror

Reflections…

Photography is like a mirror looking rearward. A view of where you’ve just come from. A recollection or memory of the road previously travelled with experiences to allow the way ahead to be navigated.

Vanishing Point

Canny weather the day.

A promise of temperatures in the sixties had the two new Triumphs out and about. I played with the helmet camera too to memorialize Deans first proper outing on the Street Scrambler. A fine looking machine there! Clocks changed this weekend and spring is truly around the corner.

Supporting Role

Center Stand

– I installed a component that should have been factory standard. But I got it for a deal and bolted it on mysen. Easier said than done that’s for sure… the access to some of the fasteners was colored by choice cursing.

First Ride of the Year

Groundhog Day | temperatures reached the low fifties today with a blue sky overhead. Even though there were patches of snow around it was decided to take the Tiger out for a ride nonetheless . The roads were particularly quiet and a good breakfast was eaten at Emily’s Diner in Zion.

Low Sun

Solstice Shadows | unseasonably warm temperatures allowed for a ride today. Low fifties and sunny skies as well as quiet roads made for a nice outing. With the handgrip warmers and an electric vest I was toasty. Coffee stop in Lake Forest IL.

License

Double Oh Seven | The latest offering in the long running James Bond franchise had its first trailer released yesterday. No Time To Die stars Daniel Craig in his fifth and final outing as the MI6 agent. Of course action will ensue with amazing stunts which include a couple of Triumph motorcycles. A Scrambler 1200 and the all new Tiger 900 are given a run for their money is chase sequences. The DB5 gets a healthy nod in the action too of course.
