Thanks to all who voted - my appreciation for your support.

There were some really worthy entries last month - I voted for a few of them myself! :D

Some suggestions for themes going forward (some of my own favourite settings) - barns, graffiti, bridges, city-scape, water (lake, ocean, river)

My name is Marc, and I would like to enter "Ollie" my 2003 Triumph Sprint RS 120ps. She is completely standard apart from a Delkevic with the baffle removed, she makes the nicest sound you will ever hear. Ollie has SAI so she pop's and bangs on the overrun, with nice big blue-orange flames shooting out the back, she's a flirt.

What I really like about Ollie, is the unassuming look. She looks like a sheep, and doesn't have anything about her that shouts out "im fast" but she really does get down the road, and I challenge any superbike of the same era to see if they can keep up with the absolutely insane mid-range this bike has; trust me they will struggle (100Nm), its really a very fast, quick road bike that is cheap to insure and takes everyone by surprise, also being the RS its very nimble around the corners, but still comfy enough for our terrible roads. She is on Michelin Road 5 tyres, which really suit the bike, you can really lean the bike over with confidence.

Most memorable time so far with ollie, hooning up and down the military road last year at the Isle of Wight, she absolutely performed flawlessly, and everyone in my group had a real struggle keeping up with her. Unfortunately the RS is one of those bikes that didn't sell that well, so there aren't many of them about and prices are low still as many are uncared for and used as cheap commuting bikes, so if you find a good one, take care of it because I think these are a real gem of a bike.

my 2007 bonneville 865, I did the obvious and removed the SAIS and added TORS to it as well as fitting the shorter pattern rear mudguard, changed the seat for the thruxton/newchuch type as well as some other minor changes such as fitting the panniers and rail and a chrome chainguard and the screen. Love every ride out on it but last year between covid lockdowns did a four triumph ride out with some mates, a grand day out. It is now nearing 20,000 miles on the clock, it was on 13.500 when I got it just before the recent times.
