    I agree with the indicators.

    Hand signals out in the country towns are fine, but in the city...it’s a better option to keep the hands on the bars.

    LED polarity on an old Triumph needs some thought but I’m sure you are across that.

    6v LED stuff is easy to get for them in either - or + earth

    Same with the tail light a half clever dude could add the indicators to a pattern taillight. one of these later Lucas ones would make a good starting point

    Rode the Tiger 100 around on Saturday, will be good when the jet kit arrives from Amal as runs lumpy around town with its richness.
    Other bikes are starting to get jealous.

    Stripped down the modified R90/S forks and reduced the air gap to 100 ml to see if that would improve the harshness, not sure why it only had 50mm, probably just added in the stock amount of 5 wt without subtracting the heavier springs and sportsvalve space.
    Has adjustable rebound and compression internals along with .66kg/mm linear springs.
    Sunday took the R90/S for a run up Woodcocks road and it was a lot nicer to ride over large bumps which on SH 16 there are many.
    Called into Kumeu Hot Rod show, never been before and its huge.
    Never seen so many beardy blokes with black singlets and wrap around shades before either.
    Clearly Hot Rodders/Bikes don't understand the terms overcapitalisation or ROI.
    My fav was a late 50's stockish Plymouth Fury.

    I hear those ones that start with a K are quite good as well. Used 4 today without any bother at all.

    If I wanted to put Japanese parts on a bike, I'd buy Kinda like me having Konis pon the CB. This Jap vs the rest thing is soooo old. Folk just need to get over it. That goes both ways BTW.

    The current Triumph marque wouldn't exist if John Bloor hadn't insisted his engineers go to Japan and find out about thier manufacturing and production line techniques. In other words it's not the Triumph of yesteryear dispite what folk imagine what the reality is.

    John Bloor was the multi-millionaire who bought the Triumph name(note-not the company) and set the new Triumph marque up originally with triples and four cylinder 4-stroke bikes. https://www.carolenash.com/insidebik...imate-triumph/ Later they bought out the parallel twin series after Kawazaki dropped the W650 on the market.The W650 at the time was touted by some of the press as more "Triumph than a Triumph". Did you sleep though the the late '80s early 90s and miss it? It was all over the M/C press. Any relation between old Triumph and new Triumph is purely asthetic and marketing hype. The most perfect and ultimate illusion in the motorcycle industry you could say.

    Even now they don't have the rights to affix the original Triumph badges on the new bikes.

    At some stage I will be, nothing wrong with Amal but if I'm going to put a new carb on it'll be something I can buy bits for off the shelf locally

    At least Enfield have a basicly continuous liniage of production. Not started decades after the old marque died off

    Don't get me wrong. I like the variaty of bikes we have to chose from but be realistic about the Companies real history and not marketing bull shit.

    Looks like the new Norton marque is going down the toilet anyway.
