    1. TEC levers
    2. Hitchcox exhaust - that was done last summer
    3. Ohlins rear shocks
    4. Black intake covers
    5. Black Bolts
    6. Motone Speedo cover in black

    I want to paint the heel guards and headlight brackets satin black and eventually fit TEC progressive front springs.

    Still love the bike,,,

    I'd get the heel guards and light brackets powder coated if I were you, much harder wearing.

    You can't beat a bit of polishing your pipe, eh @Dartplayer ;)

    They look well.

    Got out after a couple week hiatus. We had an ice storm the week before last, then six inches of snow last week. Hate the stuff. If I want to see snow, I'll but a calendar with pictures of mountains. Then, over past few days we had steady rain and temps in the 40s. Yesterday all the snow and ice was gone. It was sunny and hit 53 degrees. I took a ride out the back roads to the state park where my buds and I go "camping." Not really camping - we're a drinking club with a fishing problem, actually. My Speedmaster, Miss Maggie, seems to like the cold air. She ran well. Then on and about and somehow ended up at the tappy I visit occasionally. My rule: two wheels - two beers. It used to be a dive bar called "Russell's.". Your boots would stick to the floor, but the new owners overhauled it and now it's rather posh. The took a perfectly trashy, comfy dive bar and turned it into a sports bar. I liked the old place better. By 4:00 the temps started to dip into the 40s again and I headed home. About a 50 mile round trip.
    I can breathe again.

    The old place.

    See what you mean, and how one could have become attached to the old place.

    Changed the oil, cleaned the calipers, new brake fluid and some new levers then off for a ride to Wendover for a coffee.

    That colour has to be one of the best, it really does the bike justice. Overall a great looking bike. Love it.

    Our paths may cross. I will certainly recognize your bike if I see it.

    When you don't feel like dealing with Mr Triumphs low stock levels and uncertain supply times. Not bad for a lazy Sunday afternoons work.
