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?
