Hi all,

Have only posted tech here so far. LMK if that's the sole intent and I shouldn't post other BSA stuff here.

My family took me for a surprise trip to the Moto Talbott Collection yesterday and it was amazing.

What collection of machines! Lots of vintage Italian racers and tons of MX bikes from around the world.

In a rare stroke of luck, I'm going to London next week and will be going to National Motorcycle Museum on Sunday. I've never been.

With a bike (A65L) on the bench and approaching being done, the weather getting nicer, and now visits to see inspiring machines . . . I think I have early spring fever.

BSA pics below.

Ron Halem's Manx Gold Star in the first photo brings back memories of him. What a great guy, may he rest in peace. I rode with him on what I think was his last ride on this bike at the 2014 International Rally in Petaluma.
