Been a while since I've posted (good reason too)

I've put down the wrench for a moment and bought myself a 2010 Triumph Bonneville (I parked over I nice big oil spill to make the Brit Iron look more authentic).

Anyway, I got tired of broken down bikes consuming my life and I need to ride while the weather is good. The Triumph is still coming along. I sorted out the front forks but discovered the entire inside of the frame is lined in sand (from sandblasting without taping off the openings) and old oil. It's soking in degreaser and I'm waiting on a part washing wand to try to cleanse the guts before I go any further. In the meantime I'm enjoying my new ride immensely! Thanks to Buzz and the guys at Triumph Manayunk for hooking it up and being Stellar dudes.
