    Another new member here reporting in. After months of sneaking about looking at forums I felt a bit like a stalker,so decided to join. I've been obsessed with bikes generally, & Triumph's in particular all my life. I'm retired now & I've been riding a variety of bikes over the last 47 years. I'm now the very proud owner of a Scrambler which I bought new early 2010 - before the twin-clock model came out. I seem to be the only single-clock lover - anyone else?

    Hi foxy, welcome in . If you've been lurking about in here I am surprised you don't know we love pictures, even if you do only have one clock,lol.

    Cheers Sprintdave. Being an old fart I have no idea at the moment how to do pics yet. I do have a couple on me phone & I'm doing this on a tablet. Nothing fast is going to happen with me - except a blast on the Scrambler, of course.

    Hello and welcome!
    Single clocks?...... Much better. Always thought the doubles look wrong on most bikes tbh.. Having eighties bikes as a medium to inspire my love of bikes didn't help. Oh the wierd shapes they made lol!

    Hello and welcome, I bought a single clock triumph america and then fitted a tacho so I guess you can please them all lol.
    We all have our own loves and hates but that's what keeps it interesting.

    Hi Foxy! Welcome from down-over :D

    Be very careful: these chaps here are terribly keen on pics!
    If you do NOT post any, they might sneak into your garage and install a second clock!

    A couple of them were already reported to have crossed the channel, on the way to my house, as I was hesitating to fulfill the pic-requirements!:confused:

    They wouldn't dare Winglad - she's a one-clock lady & always will be. I'm confident she'll thwart any attempt to be interfered with!

    Good to know Foxy!

    I also have a plan to repel them, should they make it all the way down here:
    1) I might buy a BMW and plant it in my garage together with the Triumph. That supposedly has the same effect, as garlic on vampires!
    2) I put up a sign "FREIBIER", leading to a trapdoor. (well o.k., until now I just caught half a dozen innocent Syrians....)

    Always vigilant!

    Yeah, Mrs. Merkel called too, asking 'so what about that Freibier?'. I invited her over! ;)
    ...just follow the sign...
