TSMR is right around the corner. How much?? laughing

With all the vibrations from these old bikes, I'd bet it'd start shedding those mirror tiles like the Space Shuttle sheds tiles on reentry!

Name your price!!!!!! There's something mystic about the vision of you riding the Silver Triumph, flying down the road with a shower of mirror tiles flowing off of ya.

We might need a drone!

That would be a nightmare to follow.

We tinted the windows on a mate’s van and if the sun was behind, following traffic could be blinded
