THIS IMMACULATE SPECIMEN WAS PUBLISHED IN 1998
We have had rain in Nashville for something like 14 days in a row. I’m not gonna lie. It totally sucks! Not only have I not gotten on 2 wheels during that time, I’ve not done much of anything else either. Work… surf around on the computer a little… play some guitar… watch a lame TV show… sleep… repeat. It’s as if the dark months have arrived early and ripped me off of my Fall riding. ENOUGH ALREADY!
There has been one two-wheel perk during the monsoon however. Last week my mother informed me she had bought me a garage sale item for twenty-five cents. What could it be for a measly quarter you ask? Check this out… A Hugo Wilson Classic Motorcycles book featuring Triumph. This immaculate specimen was published in 1998 and covers some classic models including the 1902 Minerva, 1937 Tiger 80, 1939 Speed Twin, 1959 T120 Bonneville (see below), 1971 Trident Race and others.
Good find mom! Now if I could just get out of this coffee shop and do some real riding instead of just reading and writing about it.
