Only in solitude do we find ourselves; and in finding ourselves, we find in ourselves all our brothers in solitude.
Miguel de Unamuno


I watched this again for probably the first time in over a decade… it scared the living crap out of me.

It hit too close to home for my comfort.

If you aren’t familiar with the show I’m talking about watch it. It’s an old Twilight Zone episode about a recurring train ride a man takes. Willoughby!

The Seeley Norton

Just like a fine lady or Bourbon. Some things just get better with age.


SR500 Oil Change

AHA. Finally, after 4 SR’s and probably 8 years worth of oil changes, I finally figured out a way to bleed the oil filter housing of air without making a bloody mess of things.
The SR’s only real downfall is its oil change issues. Do it right and it’s going to take every bit of an hour. 2 screens to clean, 2 covers to R and R and an oil filter.
I’ll not go in to the details, but if you’ve done one you’ll see how handy and sanitary this really is. Saved a ton of clean up.


The Falcon Kestrel

M Y 2010. Attention to detail? You bet. I had the chance to see this bike a few months back and it was gorgeous. Everything on it was just perfect.


Cross Country 1980ish

Proof you don’t need 1600 cc’s to travel this Country of ours.
Departed Vegas to points not remembered. I think it was Marin County where I turned around though.


First post from the phone

Let’s see how this works.



By far one of the most beautiful bikes ever created.


Interesting Pit Crew

Makes you want to hit the track doesn’t it!


Not the sexiest additions…

to the Thruxton but at least now I can adjust the chain and also have a place to carry a can of lube and a few wrenches for the job.
The centerstand is OEM Triumph. (carbon canister requires removal, I don’t care what the dealer will/may tell you.)
Rear rack is a TEK piece. Very well built and reasonably priced. No complaints here.
