My son is leaving Sussex this morning on his bike heading for his new job in Thurso - about as far north as you can go. I hope he has as good a trip as you had. Enjoy your stay in that Bonny land.  :-))

Nice ride I hated getting rid of my trophy, but I would never have ridden up here in the winter.

     With you Mr T,
          Even on a Pan I would want every warm extra available (no old fart comments Shady) but there is a certain magic about riding a powerful bike in dodgy conditions. I have a very vague memory of returning from a meeting at Silverstone on a T120 Bonneville with rain all the way, when I finally arrived home I was so cold that I could not get off the bike! I had to lean against the house wall and blow my horn for ages until my dad came out to see what the noise was about then lift me off the bike. Happy days denims and leather jacket. No stuff them lets use waterproof gear seems more sensible but hey I was a teenager.
     A completely different ball game on a Pan no chain to worry about, huge fairing good luck to him and safe journey watch out for the mobile phone using D+++++++s.
     Cheers,
            Faz. :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-))

     Yo Shady,
          Its a very old Triumph motorbike which when new was approx. 328.00, now you would be lucky to get a shed T120 for under 6/7K.
     Scouse enlightenment.
           Cheers,
               Faz. :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-))

That's a better heading as the thread has drifted.
Only had a cub and a twentyone.
Drifted to Tritons after that.

 A nice bike, but 25K  %%  and to remember that in 1966 when I blew the mains on my T110/ Norton 88s framed machine thrashing it back south  from Scotch Corner, I sold it as a  50 basket case because I couldn't be bothered to rebuild the motor and bought a non leaking Honda 250 instead . Isn't hindsight a pain?  <:(
