A Taste of Power

The weather was too nice yesterday to not go riding.  Lady Luck and I took the bikes out for a quick blast around town.

While we were at it, Lady Luck took the Triumph for a spin around an empty parking lot.  She hadn't ridden the Triumph before, and the last time she rode a bike with a clutch was during the MSF course.  

It took her a few minutes to get comfortable with the controls and the rearset pegs, but she didn't have any trouble controlling the clutch, and after a couple tours around the parking lot she had the hang of handling a bigger bike.  

Pretty soon, we're going to be arm-wrestling over who gets to ride the Triumph to work...

Be careful what you say. She probably reads this, and will take it as an invitation.

Let her have the Triumph. Then, because she has the Triumph monopolized, you'll need to buy something else. Let's see, all the possibilities!

Oh, he wishes! It just mean's I'll get my own Triumph (maybe a delicious Bonneville)
