Wet & wild Sunday ride
Permalink  
 


Well we have a wet & wild weekend here in South Australia, been raining all weekend so what better way to spend a Sunday than take out a dirt bike, contacted my mate about a ride today, so two TTR's, I led but when we hit the Summer tracks I got Dave to go in front for more interesting video

Will have several videos from today, no photos & no off's

Looks like a good day out as well . It's good to ride a bit of mud and deal with  rain to keep the wet weather skills up

I've got a day clear next weekend so out again

 Any day on the bike is good, after we split to go home I got soaked, grip level on the TTR with D606's is nowhere as high as the WR but still a shed load of fun

A long time ago I was taking a group out it was cold wet and just a miserable day  stopped for a break and nothing but smiles all-round with a resounding I wouldn't want to be anywhere else

 On the Tuesday of our Victorian High country trip it was wet & cold, could not see, rain & dust at the same time but do we regret it,  no way & we still talk about it, even the fact that we could not see was fun in a strange sort of way

 Gee don't know what I would do with myself if I was unable to ride for 4 months, might have to spend time with the wife or something....best way to get a divorce !!!!

Rarely gets below 12c during the day here & even that is too cold for me, 20-30c is ideal

Sorry terryk,
Hectic week.
I have bookmarked your YT page.
Will be checking em out.
Nice one.
Looks like a trumphy ride. I'll enjoyed this one. Brings me back :) great footage. cheers

I'm on a tablet device. I double checked, if i do a YT search on 'ttr', your vids do not show up, after scrolling and scrolling.

Thats cool, have it saved. Will check em out.

Cheers terryk,
Loved this vid too

'bikes i've had'

Do not know to much about triumphs , but my uncle had one back in late 90's. He totally rebuilt it.
It got sold to another family member, must try and see if i can get a pic of it, think it's still in the family....
Have to ask my cousin, he'll know where it is.. or a bit more history on it. As it featured at his wedding. If anybody knows what happened to it, he will.
cheers.

 My two Triumph's are modern classics, the Scrambler is a 2006 & the Thruxton is a 2009 but both are the true classic Triumph styling

This slide show shows both Triumph's
