Nice bikes......

My bro is a Triumph fan too, has/had Thunderbird and Bonneville + loads of others.

Not sure where the TeDiuM fits in though....   :grin:

I loved my TDM.

I went to RPM Motorcycles to buy a clutch cable for my TTR and they had a TDM with some fancy cans on for sale. Passing the time I said "I bet that sounds nice", they gave me the keys, I started it and then bought it.

They didn't have a cable....

True story.

Here's my offerings. The best bike I've ever had is saved to the last. I've always regretted selling both Suzuki GS750's  :angry-banghead:

Unless it's got two wheels and an engine slung in the middle, I'm not interested.

I opened a (free) Flickr account and uploaded the photo's, some were that old I had to scan the negatives or prints  :) then use the "share" option just copy the BB code and paste into your reply.

Honda PF50 DXR, I was hurtling down to Worthing from Crawley many moons ago in that picture.  I remember one time going down hill, and battling the inevitable G Force that comes with 30 MPH with the wind behind you, thinking this is great. Then my mate came flying past on his Claude Butler race bike. I was gutted.  :angry-banghead:
