Happy International Womens Day

This is a single day for honouring the struggles of Women across the world for equal rights.. I have my own struggle, but that is nothing compared to the challenges faced across the Globe by the countless millions who suffer because they are Women. This is just one day to remember, to honour, and to draw attention to the fact that there is much that still needs to happen to bring about equality. Thank you.

Triumph Bobber – Full Review

Since not everyone will be familiar with the Bobber concept, it makes sense to start with a history lesson. The term Bobber originated sometime in the 1930s to describe the end result of stripping your motorcycle back to the absolute essentials and shortening the rear mudguard, which gave it a “Bob Tail.” The front mudguard would be removed. Bikes of this era typically had no rear suspension (Hardtail) and sprung single seats. The end result was a lean, clean looking bike, the Bobber. When rumours and early spy shots of…

Retro Beyond Skin Deep

Its taken a few sleepless nights, the sale of a couple of much loved bikes, and a significant amount of patience, but it has all been worth it, because this evening I collected my 2017 Triumph Bobber from the local Dealer. Spotting my new bike in the Centre of the showroom caused my already overworked heart to go into overdrive, it couldn’t decide between skipping beats, or running at 200 beats a minute, so it did both. This bike is simply Beautiful. Triumph have taken the concept of “Retro” to…

Happy BobberDay

My Bobber is now so close I can almost smell the leather on the Triumph Signature Leather Seat….. She arrived with the dealer this morning, and will hopefully, as I write, will be undergoing the process of being unpacked and assembled using the accessories that will make her mine. Today being my Birthday, makes this an extra special occasion. I won’t say how many years, but it is a Milestone. If everything lines up, I should be able to put my first kilometres on the Bobber tomorrow, and a then…

Pink Burnouts

Whilst I sit here and drum my fingers and wait for the Bobber to turn Up (Hurry Up Triumph, its not that far from the UK to Perth…..) I have been reading Facebook a little too much.

Ladies Who Lunch (after a decent ride)

I’m just back home after a lengthy day in the saddle having enjoyed some time in the company of the Ladies from WAWMR. After an early start, where, I am not ashamed to admit, my heated seat and grips were turned on full, I pointed the bike North and got going. As arranged I met with a couple of other ladies on the way into Perth, one of whom I had agreed to shadow for the duration of the ride. We all arrived at the ride starting point in plenty…

Help Us Triumph at the World Record Attempt

Late last year the World Record for the largest number of Triumph Motorcycles was established in the U.K. This was in response to an earlier attempt to set the record in Western Australia, by the irrepressible Triumph enthusiast Lorin Sole. Much time and effort has gone into preparing another attempt to set the record, where it belongs of course, back here in WA. The end result of all this enthusiasm from Mr. Sole, is a Festival Of Triumph Motorcycles that is scheduled to take place in the Shire of York…
