I'm a retired farmer living in Spruce Grove, Alberta, Canada and Mazatlan, Mexico. Started riding big bikes about 45 yrs ago and still going today. I currently ride an 04 Triumph Speedmaster and an 05 Triumph Tiger. I also have a 69 BSA Rocket 3, a 69 BSA 441 Victor and a 69 Triumph 250 Trophy. Looking forward to browsing around the sight.

The first bike I owned was a Norton 750 Commando, then got a 75 Triumph Trident that I still own. Did the Harley thing in the 70's, 80's and 90's. When they bought Triumph back in the mid 90's I went back to them. These 2 current bikes are the best machines I've ever owned.

Someone in town has a 98 Trophy for sale, it's in real nice shape with only 20,000 miles on the clock. I was thinking about it but the wife would cut my throat!

Shirley was out of the country when I bought the Trophy. Seems like a good tactic to me. How much does the guy want for the Trophy, and what size is it. Guy I know has a Trident that he runs at Bonneville. I think he is up to about 160. Partially faired. I knew him for years as a fellow RR owner. Did not know he had a bike. On my lsit of things to do is go to Bonneville. UK

Nice!!! Granite is on the west side, near Arlington. This weekend I am going hunting near Tonasket, I'm sure you have been through there.

My old uncle used to say "It's more about gettin' out than it is about gettin' ". The older I get I see what he meant.

Used to go thru Tonasket often, on the way to the track near Seattle. Also go there for US Thanksgiving. Parents of friend in Portland live there. Probably used to, as it was a long time ago. Lake Chelan is a pretty area. Went there for fall sailing events. Canuck Thanksgiving just happened. Huge waits at the ferry docks for folks going back to the mainland. Did not help we had large winds and rain last night. Power of here at 0400, just back on. UK
