My beloved "Black Betty" is being picked up tomorrow by a nice young fellow who is esactic to be the new owner. I am have come to the conclusion "Father Time" has won this round. Both knees are riddled with arthritis and the pain and lack of mobility has reached a point where the riding position is just not feasible or safe. For some unknown reason this winter has been especially cruel to both the Wife and I concerning age related maladies. I have always loved the look of the Thunderbird Sport, best lines on a motorcycle Triumph ever produced and this one I had really dialed in for my personal tastes. I again thank the member of this forum I originally purchased the bike from, it has been a pleasure to make your acquaintance. I also want to thank all here who step up to give advice, input, praise, or have the gumption to say that looks like crap. Sadly I have to admit, my Sport riding days are over, but I will continue to carry on with rest of my small herd. The rides may be shorter, more pain filled, but dammit they still make make smile. I will check in from time to time to see how you guys are doing and there are other darn pretty Hinckley Triples out there, so you never know, but I will miss this motorcycle.........
