Burnin' the Midnight Oil

Yesterday afternoon I headed up to John Trigger to help get the triumph ready for a test 'shake-down' at Mallory park today. At nearly 01h00 this morning we finished. I loaded the bike up and headed home for a few hours kip before loading up my gear and the KMR Kawasaki then heading back up to Mallory Park.

With all the work JT needed to do to the bike, it was always going to be tight... but JT has done an awesome job. A few weeks ago she was a tourer with a sat-nav holder and all the Triumph catalog crap on it. Now she's a bit closer to being a proper TT machine.

JT is probably the countries best Triumph tuner (Kawasaki and BMW too). His bikes won a TT and finished first and second in the British championship last year (Smiths Truimph). It wasn't his first British championship either. He isthe Triumph factory tuner. Pedigree. .

He built up most of the chassis and breathed some magic on the girl. She's making good power now and the delivery is as linear as a big vee twin. Beautiful! I still have a bit to do to finish her off... but in the wee hours of the morning, she was ready for some on-track testing.
