    Not a Big Trailie, but I know a lot of us have broad tastes!
    Currently there seem to be a number of themes adopted by manufacturers,and a number have jumped on the Cafe Racer bandwagon, Triumph being prominent amongst them. But as far as I'm concerned, cafe racers are a product of the 60's, and exemplified by the "Triton". The modern stuff's just a pale imitation.
    Spotted this one today in the Abergavenny Steam & Vintage show.

    And one for the young at heart :) Dig out the flared leathers.
    ( I think my old Land Rover had 6.00 x 16 tyres originally!)

    Poor Fantic, what a thing to do to a bike.

    Interesting (aftermarket accessory?) leg shields on the BMW behind, though. Wonder how they're stopped from chaffing on the tank?
