    Thanks for keeping Britain's motorcycle tradition alive and well. You're riding a real piece of history there, look after it 🙂

    i heard that triumps vibrate bad thru the bar's, you dont feel anything do you if it's tuned right do you?
    Im like the chrome fendered one's with the drum brake.

    i have a video of me riding it. i plan on putting it up there. im kind of bummed right now. after only about 250 miles of riding the piston rings went on the left cylinder, and /or valve guides. its getting new pistons and rings and im having the valves done and new guides put in. glad you like it though, thanks a lot

    A real classic you have there…to bad you didn't film the bike being rode down the street.

  26. nbommar5 says:

    im 6' 3". the bike feels great except i get a little cramped in my shoulders. i could fix it by putting some taller bars on, but i love the look of the ones i have on it now.
