IMPORTANT note about my web site and Joomla Extensions
In an attempt to better organise my life (HA!), I'm currently separating my personal and work sites. If you're looking for my Joomla Extensions, or anything related to my work for that matter, then head over to the new work site, here. (Yes, it's work in progress.. isn't it always?)
Last September/October, I managed to have a wee accident in the garden and broke my ankle. No, it didn't involve alcohol or bikes!! I spent 6 weeks on crutches and about 5 weeks in plaster. Worse still, a week before the accident I'd just picked up my new bike! I don't know which hurt the most, the broken ankle, or a new bike I couldn't ride. I was so tempted to try, but my 'bikie' neighbour happens to be a nurse, and she threatened me if I got on the bike :^)
Anyhoo, the new bike is a 2007 Triumph Tiger with under 6000km's (now 7000+) on the clock. I always fancied the Tiger, but was always concerned I may have been a little on the short side. One ride later (shouldn't have stopped at the bike shop!!) and I was hooked. I loved the Sprint, but the Tiger (for me) was even better. For the type of riding I do, it's a bit more practical too.
While on the subject of Triumph, I picked up the Triumph Sympatex Speed jacket and Camo pants a few months ago, and can't recommend them enough. They are well made, and a fantastic fit, and so far... waterproof!! I can't go past bike gear without mentioning Draggin Jeans too. I virtually live in my Draggin's (the boy scout motto lives on.... be prepared!!) and I recently bought a pair of their new Slyx to add to my collection. Very nice!!
Ride safe fellow bikers!
