When?

Post by trip on June 13th 2017, 10:27 am

When was the first time you remember falling in love with a particular motorcycle?

For me, having to guess here, summer of 1958 or 59 in central Fl. Dad stopped at a gas station for gas and cig's. A young guy, older teens was putting gas in his black Triumph. He was wearing jeans, black boots, white Tee shirt, cigarettes rolled up in his sleeve. I thought he was so cool but best of all, he was riding a Triumph.

I was sitting on a crate at Art Savage's Triumph shop. I used to hang out at the shop and learn from the old boy. He was in his early 70's and was telling me he would be gone for a few weeks. He was riding his Trident 750 to bike weeks. Then we un-crated a blue and white Tiger 750. Art was the coolest guy I knew and that Tiger 750 was the coolest bike.
