The wife jumped on the back of my son's old Triumph with me and we went for a ride. We haven't double rode in a long time. The first time we did it together...I was 18 and she was 24, I'm 55 now...lol.

That's a tight fit.

Also, those Bonneville's are some nice looking bikes. How's it ride?

It's a super easy bike to ride IMO.

I like cafe racer style bikes...it's a nice tweener between laid back cruisers and sport bikes. Having a lot of fun on it!

This video is a SimHQ exclusive...lol.

It's actually just an unlisted video I that I made and sent to a few friends to check out. (less than 2 minutes long)

The first part is me messing with my son at the end of our ride...I went into a little "starting gate" mode at a street light. Complete with legs dragging behind me through the intersection for full effect. (he's a cop BTW lol)

About 20 minutes later we were merging on the freeway...and I see my boss in his van. He's my boss but we've worked together at least 5 days a week for the last 22 years at the same company and are good friends. Friday we were talking about how he was going with his son to do a Spartan race in San Jose and I was going on a ride with my son. We live in the heavily populated SF Bay Area in the Silicon Valley...so not exactly sparsely populated...lol.





(It's bumming me out that the embed feature doesn't work here anymore...if anyone figures out why please share!)

My first time back on a motocross track in quite awhile. I was rusty but I kept myself and the bike off the ground so it was a good day!
