    Greetings all. I'm a So. California rider. This 2018 T120 Black is my 20th bike since 1971 and so many miles ago. This is my first British bike. I chose this model for the traditional riding position and the 'street-able;' torque which I dearly love. I'm just a couple miles from great sparsely traveled mountain roads and so far I'm having a blast riding Black Betty.[​IMG]

    If it's black I won't ever second guess my color choices. If it's another color I eventually start talking to myself, "I should have gotten the black one". I'm also a fan of black motors. I just like the stealthy looks.

    Great roads indeed. Tomorrow I'm heading up the coast from Bay Area to Mendocino/Fort Bragg, then back Sunday.

    that's really nice up there. I used to live in Millbrae when I was 16 and rode my little Suzuki 120 all the way to Santa Cruz on Skyline Blvd with only 1 stop light on my route. Lots of little roads that wind down to the coast from that highway. You could also ride your motorcycle down into the San Andreas Reservoir area on the dirt trails back then (1970).
