Saturday Photo Hunt

This week's theme is "classic". What immediately came to mind was classic British bikes. This is a 1981 750cc Triumph Bonneville. This is a photo of a photo that I originally took about 20 years ago. The G-Man and I did a motorcycle tour of Tasmania. This was taken at the top of Mount Wellington, overlooking Hobart. It was so cold that I took the pic with helmet and gloves still on!

Julie said...

Hardly Dangerouses? No. Heavy, slow, unreliable, the cause of much bad facial hair and poor dress sense. :)
