Strange, but true. The four in bold text are still in the garage. One bike shop in Brisbane in the early 80s used to joke that I traded bikes once the ashtray got full... And it all started with a humble CB100!

I started riding in 2018. Did my CBT and went and bought this beauty:

2018 Bullitt Spirit (125cc)


I passed my mod 2 last Thursday and when I got home in the evening, there was a delivery van waiting for me with my new bike:

2013 Triumph Bonneville (her name is Penny)


And here they are side to side (until I hand back the Bullitt to the hire purchase company)

I quite like the look of them little bullit bikes, it's a shame they don't build something like a 650 twin model.
Beautiful bike and as reliable as a 125cc can be. Only minor gripe was it's a pain trying to find neutral. And in cold weather you have to wait about 15 mins for it to warm before riding, otherwise the engine will cut out when you gear down or if you brake too hard. One of many reasons I am so happy with Penny. Such nuances are a thing of the past.

Been riding for 60+ years, lost count of bikes I‘be owned a few years back. At age 76 that CRS disease sometimes kicks in. I’m thinking maybe 50-60. My 1st bike was a 1966(?)Honda Bentley Touring 175, the newest in a 2019 Street twin. In my garage, along with the Street Twin in a 20198 Vespa 300, a 2019 H-D Heritage 114, and a 2017 Moto Guzzi V7 Special III. If it it got two wheels and a motor I probably owned it or at least one of it’s family members. Most fun may have been the 1971 250cc Ossa Pioneer. 1st new Triumph was a 1969 500cc Scrambler, I wanted to be Steve McQueen! Most memorible cross country trip was on a 2013 Vespa 300. ...... For me it’s more about the journey then the bike.
In my old age I sometimes ramble on. Sorry about that. :(
