ON A CLEAR DAY



It wasn't a clear day, it was a day i have been putting off all week. This thing has been so much trouble i just knew that when i went out on it some dreadful malfunction would occur.......nothing, just cold hands.
Since it hit the road stuttering last March there have been major engine problems resulting in a top end rebuild plus a new oil pump and fundamental problems with both brakes, rear axle, wheel bearings, gearing and carb accompanied by the mag drive shearing, front axle and original rear sprocket nuts coming loose and other stuff that was now so long ago Ive forgotten all about it. Today's were the first trouble free miles i have done and the MOT and Tax runs out at the end of this month !
Its usually about now, when i have finally got a bike where i want it, that i sell it....

Triumph wise a good day but since i hit myself in the face with a tyre lever changing a tyre instead of paying Browny a quid to do it, not so good.

its funny that they call them teething problems as i think teeth never give you that much shit. they should be called HORMONAL ITCHY BALLS instead.
