I've always enjoyed my Triumphs, ever since the first one back in
1974. That was the start of a lifelong learning experience (never mind
the fact that I turned down a Fiat 850 to buy that first car), and I'm
I've never really been a stickler for originality or accuracy,
preferring fun and reliability. I'd rather drive a car than show it,
and a row of beautifully styled machines with their bonnets open,
spoiling the lines, leaves me cold. But that's just me. I certainly
wouldn't want to denigrate anyone else's favorite facet of the hobby.
Because we all have a common point of reference: the community.
Whenever two or more of us get together, no matter how we individually
see our interests, there's bound to be some fun involved, as well as a
good chance you'll come away with some new tip, trick or tool to help
you in the future. To me, that's the crux of the biscuit - taking a
solo drive is fun, but driving in a long line of LBCs puts a stupid grin
on my face that lasts for days.
So, on to the point of this message: Recently, as a result of a
conversation about some auto arcana on this list, I had the honor of
hosting a list member as he made his way down to Jekyll Island. Though
the visit was short, it was interesting, and it's always nice to meet
list members and put a face to the signature files and tag lines that
are so familiar.
So, no matter if you're expounding on the proper sequence of spoke
polishing or discussing the proper amount of baling wire to carry in the
boot, rest assured I'm enjoying every minute, and maybe learning
something new in the process.
