I imagine he was texting, on the radio, and eating a cheeseburger all at the same time. They are trained to do that you know.

Glad to see you are still around and doing a lot of riding. Congratulations on the Triumph. Awesome bike.

Thanx guys! Yeah, I'm enjoying it once again! Got my check in today and the new fender is on order. It may take up to 6 weeks to come in, so my buddy and I dropped the rear tire, banged the fender out, straightened the turn signals and license plate bracket and fitted a tail lamp/stop light from an old Yamaha that fit in place almost perfectly! I guess I'll be calling it my Trimaha for the time being!! Lol!! At least I'm riding again!!

Here's what it looks like...not too bad, all things considered.
