1978 Triumph Bonneville 750cc T 140E

1978 Triumph

I was doing a job in New York remodeling a kitchen, all of the cabinets were put in the garage waiting for installation, as I was going over the kitchen plan with the homeowner we started talking about a motorcycle tucked away in the corner I noticed it was a Triumph and related the story I had a 1973 Triumph Bonneville 750cc that was my first bike and how I had a first and lasting love for a Triumph. He said it wasn’t his bike that it was he’s brothers who was storing it there while he was in Europe. Well I just happened to ask if it were for sale I would be very interested. Did I mention this conversation took place in 2001. On Aug 1 2011 I got a phone call asking me if I were still interested in the Triumph, 10 years later, I was shocked and without hesitation said yes and within 2 days I had it in my garage. Sitting for 10 years it needed some work which happened to be very little, something I could do myself, but rebuilding carb and the mechanics of the rebuild I left to the Classic Triumph Mechanic. I picked up the Triumph yesterday and it started on the first kick. What a joy.  Some other views

I bought my Triumph in 1973 and had it until 1983, In 2008 I bought a Harley Davidson Fatboy

2008 Fatboy

 So now I have 3 loves in my life, My Fatboy, My Triumph and My Wife.

OOPS not necessarily in that order.

3-10-2011 Is This Turkey Day

It sure was in my yard today, looking out the kitchen window I was surprises at this site.

Turkey Family

Normally at this bird feeding station I attract a variety of wild birds such as Blue Jays, Cardinals, Woodpeckers, Doves you know the usual, except this morning.

Got Real Close

So I walked out the door and they just curiously looked at me so I grabbed a handful of wild bird feed, that I always keep in a small can at the back stairs, and chicky, chicky, chicky and they were at my feet gobbleing around. It was real kewl.

Eating Seed

That made my day.
