Was that you?

This is a sticky for sightings of Hinckley twins - see a bike while you're out and about? Post the sighting here and we'll see who 'fesses up!

Credit for this sticky idea goes to HiDesert! Great idea!

We may well clean out the thread every couple of weeks - if no one has fessed up in that time, they most likely will not, or will have forgotten where they were anyway! Don't be offended if you're deleted, we just want to keep the thread easy to work with.

Before he did it, I'd have said it couldn't be done.

New Mexico sighting

Sunday, 26 October; it was about 2:45 or so, on route 501 near Bandelier National Park. I was the red Daytona headed north, you were headed south with two other bikes of lesser make. Are you here?

I won't stop riding because you tell me about someone who died in an accident, just as I won't stop eating because someone died of e.coli.

Nice idea Prop.

Richmond, VA - There's a black Thruxton I keep seeing parked around the Fan, most recently at Kroger on Broad. You out there?

Whidbey Island, Wa. NASWI. I've seen a scrambler parked at the barracks and the Nex on several occasions. Is the owner here?

So who rode in on the 1977 Jubilee 750 Bonnie? I just want to thank you for existing. Seeing that bike made my day (then again the perfect weather on the California coast in November didn't hurt either)

Where do I tie on my second place trophy?

Black w/red T100 turning onto Santa Isabel from Newport Blvd. Hell, you probably would have seen or noticed me (since I was at the front at the light) if I were not in, ahem, the cage.

Keep seeing a black Speedmaster with flames and leather saddlebags in my garage? I have never seen it on the road with its owner though >

I'm not lost, I'm exploring. Columbus didn't have a clue in hell where he was either!

On my silver Bonnie, passed a Green/White T100 with a flyscreen coming the other way. Nice looking ride! I had a smile on my face for the rest of the afternoon!

Triumphs rule.
