Default Speaking of Pink...

Remember JLO.. my XJR1300, She looked like this...




Well i got bored.. time for a change... out with the old... pastures new... blah blah blah... !!


So now i have this...



Triumph Speed triple 955i, 1999 's' 11.5k... straight swap.

Its a marmite bike, you either love it or you hate it, i love it, i just love its quwerky looks and awsome sound, and the power...ooohhhh the power... !!

And yes its PINK... technicaly known as Nuclear Red, but it is definately PINK... and you know what.. i quite like it.. so Naaaah !

I was quite astounded buy the power delivery, i was thinking that coming from the XJR wich has bags of torque it would be quite similar, but it really is an animal, and the handling is great.

I did the deal in Birmingham and took a detour to see a mate who was at his G/F house in Chepstow (i think you may know him) and coming down the A48 was a fantastic ride

Always thought that was a f'kin' mega colour for 'em, way better than the green.

I am actualy coming to the decision that it will change colour, not sure what yet, like the Aerosmith idea but the pink is too dark really..
