Another one from my bucket list - the latest Triumph Rocket
I think so too. Absolutely beautiful. Bit worried about the G force as you pull away from the traffic lights  :eek

When you start looking at the detail in that it's really something else.
never look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.

It’s super extra awesome as the young dudes would say.
I’m not keen on the disc brakes, I think it’s begging for some drums.  But I’m being picky.  It’s gorgeous.  It's cool, it's ice cool.

Some mare photaes comin.

Why has it got a Yamaha rear calliper on it?

Probably for the same reason it has a Yamaha Blue Spot front caliper - so you can stop.
Which is handy.  Not just from a safety point of view, but you may want to stop and pause now and again so as folks can fully appreciate how cool you are.

LOL, I was referring more to the fact that it is Honda and therefore assumed Honda parts would be on it!

This photo was taken outside my old school in the 1920's. Cool bikes and even cooler looking riders ! Just love the headwear.

I think Robbo's on a Singer,Ogri's maybe on a Douglas combo but I don't know what Red's on but he's definitely smoking Old Holborn  :lol

I'm guessing Zenith Gradua for the bike on the left. I reckon that's the belt pulley adjuster winding device thingy they had sticking out above the fuel tank ;) .


Somebody will probably point out how they can see that it's chain drive now :lol

I get The Vintage Motorcycle Club magazine passed on to me each month. A good read. Their club members would have a field day with that photo :lol .


You'd find out the makes/models/year of manufacture/factory options..........
