Mom, Can I Get This? I Promise I’ll Clean My Room

Getting the little ’65 Honda last year gave me a taste of the fun that motorcycling offers.  The rides around Lake Bellaire on quiet weekend days were relaxing, and seeing the sights on a motorcycle is much more fun than through a car window.  The Honda’s 50cc engine, however, is better suited for the subdivisions down-state where it can keep up with other traffic.  Therefore, it will come to St Clair Shores this Spring.

Taking it’s place in Alden will be this gorgeous ’99 Triumph Legend TT.  Like the Honda before it, this beauty comes courtesy of Uncle Graham Baker.  For those interested in the details, like my Mom, it has a 3-cylinder 900cc water-cooled engine.  I really like the classic cruiser styling and tear-drop fuel tank, which is scalloped on the sides to provide more room for the rider’s knees.  It rides low to the ground, which is helpful for guys like me with shorter legs.

So, Mom, what do you think?

  1. That Triumph really looks clean. You really look good on it to. Surprized you have’nt bought one long time ago. Does Debbie know how good you look on that bike. I bet she feels bad that she would’nt let you buy one years ago. I bet she’s happy now cause she knows your happy and that you really look cool. Now your both happy. Wish I had a understanding wife like you do Kevin. Your so lucky. What’s the trick? I’m so happy for you guy’s. “RIDE HARD, KEEP YOUR EYE’S OPEN AND YOUR MOUTH SHUT”.

  2. What the hell? I don.t think so! Now Debbie gets the same amount of money to go shopping with!And where is Enzo gonna sit since he’s your up north weekend dog?

    1. I think Debbie already got this much money for the kitchen remod, and then some. Maybe I can get a side car for Enzo, and a little pair of doggie goggles.

  3. OK! I’LL SOLVE IT FOR THE BOTH OF YOU’S GIVE ME THE MONEY AND THE BIKE I’LL RIDE IT OUT OF TOWN. LOL LOL GOOD I SAID IT I’LL SAVE ON MY THERAPY SECTION’S LOL.

  4. No……………………I’ve been hearing for many, many, many, many, many, many years how you will clean your room…………………………… I wouldn’t even allow you to play football !!!!!!! Oh well, I guess you are over the ‘age of consent’………….what can I say but, BE CAREFUL, AND I MEAN IT!
    I love you lots and cannot live without you…………………..DO YOU HEAR ME? Probably not……

    1. I hear you, and I promise to be careful. I really did clean my room, and made my bed too.

      Hey mom, I have a spare helmet if you’d like to ride with me one day 🙂

      Love you too.

  5. I’ll have to think about it……………………….I have learned that I am not a ‘good’ rider on these things. I lean in the opposite direction on turns………………afraid of falling kind of thing.
