|Info: A celebration of the Speed Triple hitting two decades old.MK1 Speed Triple co-founder Mot has been a busy little bee sorting this one out for you lads.He’s been whacking ideas about on the good old triumphrat.net and triumphtorque.com forums to make sure this milestone doesn’t go by without a flash and by jingo I think he’s gown and bleedin’ well done it! The plan is this, and fuck me he’s getting better at it as the years roll on!
He has a whole sodding weekend in store for you starting at the factory on the morning of the 17th May at the factory where we gets to have a break from the ride up and meet and great the fellas who put the miles in. Then we are waddling the bikes over to the National Motorcycle Museum come the afternoon and having a good old rummage around there. Once we are sick of that place we get to get pissed and bed down at the The Vic. Then it’s nice and gentle Sunday spin onto the The National Memorial Arboretum for a brew before we all slope off home.
LATEST: The Factory have been in touch and they are worried we’ll get too many lads turn up for a nose about the factory. So the thing is The factory bit is MK1’s and Super III’s only and if you do want in on a tour we’ll need your name and address to boot. This is all in the name of health and safety peeps. Get word of your address over to us via the contact page here or on the forums at Triumph Torque or Triumphrat.net.
Don’t leave your address in the comments below please gents.
