Well fellas, this came a little out of the blue. Those lads over at Swinton Bikes have a little project running at the moment and we’ve been asked to help out a touch. Here is the e-mail I got from their outsourced web design chaps.
“We work on behalf of Swinton Bikes and we’ve been working on a Battle of the Bikes picture board to encapsulate the best sports bikes of the 90’s. We’ve deliberated long and hard about which should be featured in this. The 90’s was certainly a renaissance period for bikes but the list has now been whittled down to 9 bikes. One of our favourites is the Triumph MK1 Speed Triple. The next step is to feature quotes on the picture board from bike enthusiasts as to why their preferred bike should win the battle of the bikes. We feel you would be the perfect ambassador for the Triumph MK1 Speed Triple.”
So, how cool is that. A nice dose of recognition as to how cool our bikes are. Now the thing is that makes the Mk1 9th best bike of the 90’s if we don’t lift a finger and I don’t think it does the machine justice. To push it up to the numero uno spot I need us to get our heads together and come up with some top flight quotes as to why the MK1 Speed Triple was “THE” bike of the 90’s.
Use the comments bit below to inundate us with your witty and soul encapsulating literary masterpieces… let’s win the accolade lads! Let’s face it, that’s what the bike did to us, captured our souls so now let’s give her a little something back.
Well that’s my Martin Luther King style inspirational speech over and done with.
It’s over to you lot now.
May God have mercy on our souls. 😀
