don’t give up!

YOU KNOW, ALL THIS covid-19 stuff has got a lot of people down in the dumps. I personally think the toll of the ‘side-effects’ covid-19 will bring to many will be a bigger problem than the virus itself over the short to medium term. As I type this, a lot of Victorian residents are getting restless and I don’t blame them. So, what I’d like you to do is reminisce; if you can’t get out for a ride, think about all the fun you’ve had and remember that days will get better. How about we start this all off by you telling us your favourite ride, your favourite place to go for coffee or to talk bullshit with your mates – it’s times like these that make lifetime memories.

triumph thruxton rs go to match the show

IT’S ALL WELL AND good to create a motorcycle that’s amazing to look at, which Triumph has done with the current Thruxton, but giving it some go, and I what I mean by “go” is “go bloody fast”, is another thing. But that’s what you get with the new Triumph Thruxton RS. The original launch of the current shape Thruxton was at a private race track at Murray Valley in northern VIC. A great little track that takes a little bit of learning to get the quick change of direction changes perfect for a quick lap time. I got to thrash the original Thruxton around there a few years ago and found it such a fun bike to ride. When I heard about the new RS version, I was wetting my…
