Didn’t get out much this year. Tracking both car and bike trips. With a nod to Jason Kottke, “One or more nights were spent in each place. Those cities marked with an * were visited multiple times on non-consecutive days.”
- Thompson Falls, MT (car and bike)*
- Nelson, BC (bike)
- Spokane, WA
- Riverside, CA (Shelby)
- St. George, UT (Shelby)
- Lehi, UT (Shelby)
- Fillmore, UT
- Las Vegas, NV
- Springville, UT
I’ve had my eye on a set of Triumph Speedmaster wheels (the newer, directional 5-spoke) on Ebay, but I just can’t pull the trigger, even at a paltry $500. I’ve already gone through so much to get a wire-spoke dual front disc wheel, but I’d love to stash those Speedy wheels away for my bike’s next makeover.
So I consoled myself with a killer deal on a Corbin backrest and glovebox. New the combo costs $578. I got it for $99. It’s black and red, which doesn’t match my bike at all, but I’ll either have my buddy squirt it solid black or I’ll just rattlecan it. Still a killer deal.
Very cool. Some nice old hardware in there and some nice new hardware. My engine (probably the Thruxton version) and the Rocket III (not the most aesthetically pleasing beast). Make sure you click the “full screen” button in the lower right corner of the slideshow.
