    Long day

    I had a good day out with my neighbour and his lady friend.We took in a visit to sammy Millers in the new forest.I hadnít been there for a couple of years and I was quite surprised at how much bigger it was with lots more bikes on show
    I was really pleased as they had 350 triumph there that I rode up to Scotland for the first time so it sort of made my day
    Iíve not been able to get on here recently as my tablet seemed to go haywire luckily my neighbour managed to sort it

       Very good to hear from you, Jim.

      'I was really pleased as they had 350 triumph there that I rode up to Scotland for the first time...'

       When was this?

       Rob.

    it was a 350 twin cylinder triumph. In perfect condition
    eventually I traded it it in for a 650 Triumph thunderbird and in 1968 i bought my 1st Japanese bike a Honda 450 black bomber and it was the 1st time I had a bike that didnít leak oiil.  Jim
