New addition to the stable

As some of you know, I was toying with connecting a sidecar to my LT. After a lot of research and help from others (Loren in particular), I decided that the project was too expensive and too involved. So as an alternative, me thinks, get a different tug for the side car and that way I can still ride the LT on its own and my bride will be happy too.

So, by a stroke of luck this sweet 2004 Triumph Speedmaster with 5700 miles followed me home. Looks like an excellent candidate for a side car rig. So far though, I am just having fun cruising around.

I always liked the looks of a plain black Triumph. Nice snatch!
