After a break for the plague last year, the Nashville Ton Up club show happened on Saturday at the Yazoo brewery.
Turn out was light compared to past years, but that worked in my favor. My Trident got the award for Other British. No Matchless or AJS, etc., so the extra cylinder qualified I guess. laugh
Not many entries in American, Competition, or European.
That R90S has only 40K miles on the clock and original, but the R60 won the class.

Yes, Gordon, I'll still hang out with the riff raff.

BTW: I'm pleased to report that the biggest oil spot was under a Guzzi. laughing

The bike belongs to Andy Feindling. He owns some nice race bikes, this one, a Gold Star and a B50. Tony Reed has ridden all of them (well) at some point this season.

Well if it'll make you feel better.....
Don't really know if it is a Triumph or a BSA. But they're all BSA, right?
Thanks for the offer, but the B50 is doing fine. For now. With Gumby riding it at Barber, it will get a thrashing I'm sure. May talk to you in a couple weeks...
See you Sat.

They’re BSA’s in my opinion but my opinion doesn’t count for much.

B25-T25………kinda like your B50. The only thing Triumph on it is the owner if he’s riding it. With Bill ( aka Semper Gumby) on it…….it’s a BSA.

But you know it’s all in good fun. They are vintage British and being enjoyed that’s what really matters.

See ya Saturday….. Gordon
