Can't think of what else, oh yeah, Airhawk seat for comfort.as you can see, I like bling...









I'm not sure if you'll even see this reply or not, but OMG I LOVE what you did to the paint on your Bird.
I just picked up a blue 2012 bird and want to get her painted. I also have (but have to sell) a 2010 black and white scalloped painted bonny. I LOVE that paint scheme with the gold pin stripe. I wanted to do something reminiscent of the old school Triumph, but not take away from the "newness" and massive size and sporyness of the Bird.
Ironically I lost a side panel on the ride home and Triumph is telling me to pound sand, even though their grommet failed. I didn't want to spend the money on their $250USD side panel, so was going to go on the cheap and buy the chrome pair of them from British Customs and have them painted.......but maybe not now.
That paint scheme is exquisite!!!!! It's the best of both worlds combining the classic Triumph look, while maintaining it's monsterousness!!!!!
I wasn't thrilled with the Triumph logo on the tank, so bought a Bonneville "eyebrow" Triumph badge for both sides. I'm also (if I decide to put the "Thunderbird logo) on the panels, going to subtly change the word from Thunderbird to Thudderbird.
Thank God you're in Aus, because I may have to use your paint scheme as inspiration. I'm also having someone rebuild my (crap) stock seat, so it's a little more comfy. I had an Airhawk for a week, and it was pretty comfy, but DAMN, it's ugly.
Anyway, thanks for the photos, it's amazing.

A shot from my Sunday morning tribute ride to the band Rush. Every time I ride past this I start humming the song in my head. Finally got a chance to stop and take a pic. "Moving Pictures" anyone?

I thought I was the only person who thought strange thins like that. I constantly make obscure references to things I see. My wife thinks I'm a nut and I've stopped explaining the connections because she still ends up confused.

Being a Canadian lad, and a RUSH fan for over 40 years...I appreciate that!

Glad to see there's some Rush fans on here who picked up on it. This is about a half hour away from my house on a two lane highway and well worth the drive for the shot. Although it was a bit risky pulling off on the left hand side of a highway where speeds definitely tend to drift up over the speed limit. I got the shot as quick as I could and then got back on the bike and off the shoulder. But I'm happy the shot turned out as good as it did for an iPhone photo.

1955 Ford Thunderbird & 2010 Triumph Thunderbird

While out for a Sunday cruise last week, saw this convertible Thunderbird coming along behind me so I had to ask that question of the possibilities of getting a pic of his 1955 Thunderbird with my 2010 Thunderbird (55yrs apart) What a beauty
