    Are you considering ditching the BMW Tony or would this be an addition?

    No way the 9T is going anywhere, and it was the two-bike logistics that stopped me going ahead, Steve. The other thing was that the TFC clip-ons are quite low and the prospect of swapping them out for the standard alternatives was one I didnít quite fancy.

    Need to buy a couple of beds from Brent Cross today, and just noticed that it doesn't open until mid-day. That sounds like a rather good excuse to pop over to the Ace Cafe for a little breakfast first

    Well, made a small start to the modifications I want to do to the Interceptor.

    This was the starting point, after collecting from the dealer.


    First thing was to remove the black plastic mudguard extensions front and rear, as they don't fit the look I want.

    Front gone.


    And rear gone.


    And remove the rear grab rail as well (leaving the handle for pulling onto the centre stand as I intend to keep that on the bike).


    Next will probably be a different tail light and indicators, and a different number plate. The seat will probably go for the Continental models seat instead which I prefer. The silencers are most likely going to be replaced by something more like the old Dunstall Megaphones. Should be fun.

    Probably not many on there, most seem to go for the Triumphs. Looked at them but decided this would be something different. No road rocket, but been there done that so fine for me!

    My bike left for itís 2 month voyage to NZ on Monday.

    I was a bit short notice,I changed the oil and filter myself,then cleaned her 3 times to pass immigration controls.

    I also had the tyres,chain and sprockets replaced, I estimate I will do about 4,000 miles though distance isnít the objective.

    When I get there I have to get my front brake lines replaced as they are bolted rather than crimped ends,my importers are can do sorts and are taking care of it for me.
    They are also Picking me up from the airport sorting out customs and the MOT type test.

    Hel posted the next day for me,they understand the NZ regs and marked the hoses they also gave me 20% military discount.

    The cost is mounting up though with all the little extras,itís worth it though.

    Nice bike, I met a guy in Slaidburn who had just bought one, he said improvement 1 was remove the silencers as they weigh a fair amount!

    Yup, it's on the list definitely. They weigh so much because the cats are in them as well as being a silencer. A little more of a parallel twin 'thump' will be nice as well, although it definitely won't be as loud as the Harley was!!

    No... with it being a limited edition I think itíd be a mistake to start mucking about with it..

    Itíll get forward controls, and a decat and thatíll be it...

    On the subject of Triumph Bobbers, apparently Triumph have got a big seller on their hands.

    So I was surprised when I popped in to the Triumph dealer in Swindon at the weekend to note that they still had the 2 second-hand Bobbers in stock that they had when I was bike hunting back in March.

    OK, the only reason for still having them in stock is price and there's a bit of end-of-season discounting going on now, but that's a long time in stock for such a popular model

    Triumph finally have a showroom and service in central london again, should anyone else have been waiting for it to reopen.

    Meanwhile slightly off topic but I wouldnít mind a go on this:

    https://www.motorcyclenews.com/news/...aprilia-rs660/

    Iím imaging something like a more torquey Street Triple or like an SV650 but with 100bhp - in which case what a great road bike, give or take the sporty looks and high price.

    The London showroom is a
    Welcome addition. I have to say that the guys from Triumph Ashford are superb as are Guildford (for certain things)

    After a busy work week it is lovely to get out on the bike to where there are no people!
