    Hi All,

    just about to collect my new Street Twin in Sydney. It's been a while but looking forward to it.

    First Triumph was a '64 T20 Tiger Cub in '79. Bought it in Streatham and it dumped all it's oil at some traffic lights half way across London. I was sixteen and a bit clueless then. Clearly didn't learn from that (apart from how to fix Triumphs).

    '77 T140V from '81 to '97 (sold when I emigrated to Aus). Written off and rebuilt twice (both by me). Gorgeous bike - should have kept it, of course. Had a 955 Sprint for a few months a while back but haven't owned a motorcycle at all since 2005.

    Bought the Street Twin to ease myself back in....hoping to stay upright and have some fun with it.

    PS - If anyone out there owns a '77 Bonnie, UK reg UUU 871S, please can I buy it back?
