Yep, its happening again. More of that ol fart fun n games BS…
Flew into LAX before 7am today, Friday the 20th of June, 2014.
I flew out of Brisbane 11am yesterday, Friday the 20th of June, 2014.
It’s about 11am here in SoCal. It’s about 4am in Queensland. I woke at 530am yesterday so have been traveling some 22 hours.
Airports suck but the fact that I can arrive here, this morn, get a pickup at the airport and be in Pasadena by 830am is fantastic.
Something else is fantastic… picked up yet another Triumph Thruxton, my third. When I bought the first last year I was not sure but willing to give such a nice looking bike the benefit of the doubt. And I loved it. Not huge power, but sufficient for my old fart needs. I rode one from Iowa to NorthCal last year. Bought one in Aus. And just picked this one up.
The guys I bought it from were very easy to deal with. I’d say check them out if you are looking for a bike in this neck of the woods…
I’ll take it to Carpy’s shop tomorrow and try a pair of his made-for-Thruxton exhausts.
Carpy is a mad Britt who I have gotten to know a bit. His shop is in Anaheim so I’ll run out there and get a pair of these on my bike.
I’ll blog as I go…
