    That is THE color combination for the Bonneville, too.
    Good choice!

    By overwhelming demand, here's what those Trident silencers are attached to, Sir Costalot.
    2006 Triumph 1050 Sprint ST.
    I broke the fairing unloading it when I got it home SO that's how it got its name.

    Nice. Looks like that one is set up to do some long distance runs.

    Thanks, I really like this bike and it has a top box on it (not pictured).
    The saddlebags are double wall so they don't hold nearly as much as you might think.

    Here is my early retirement gift to myself, a 2011 Sprint GT.
    I figure it beats a pocket watch and a lifetime supply of Metamucil.
    Last pic shows a Givi top case as the Triumph one is incredibly heavy and a Corbin seat which is really good.
    The plan is to retire and hit all 48 lower states on this one.

    This is how a Corbin seat should be made, so many of them are like planks.

    Excellent Steve. And that Corbin looks ready made for a Lower 48 run. Are you going to do all the states at once or over time?

    I had a Butt Buffer pad installed under my stock Harley seat and it made a world of difference. For long rides, I have an air adjustable that is super-comfy.

    I'd have to do it over time and want to hit the roads that are all squiggles on the map.

    That Duc looks look an awful lot of fun, the Italians have such flair.

    Thanks, you need to be seen that's a bonus. This 748R was a great find and runs well.

    While waiting for Spring to arrive, here's one that I purchased from a lady Marine. She had a Harley, a 955 Triumph and a 1050 Triumph and her husband has none! I now have her 955 which is an 03 Sprint ST in Aston Green which is a flip flop color that goes from a blueish/purple to a dark green depending upon the lighting.
    I went through it last Winter and it's a comfortable, fast sport tourer.
    It has the color matched factory hard saddlebags but they're up on a shelf as space is at a premium.

    I have a buddy that customs out some from time to time. I can ask him about parts if you'd like.

    Biker Scum 2020 is officially underway.

    Buell Ulysses leaves tomorrow, yet another Triumph Sprint 955i ST is filling the empty slot shortly.
    Seeing as how I already have a 955i ST it's only fitting that the "new" one is called The Evil Twin.

    I do believe this is going to be a great motorcycle season!

    The Ulysses is sold, "new" Triumph details are being hammered out (stupid pandemic is screwing things up a bit) and today I got this unwashed little monster out on the road.
    Hurry, Summer!!!
