Back in the Saddle! Bought a New Bike.

I thought I'd sold my last bike ever. I thought the texting drivers had finally run me off the road for good. I thought maybe I was too old. But I got the fever again, lured by a fetching machine.

Whoever can guess the bike wins!

It's not a Triumph Street Cup. Though those are really cool.

There is no telling what bike you bought. But my guesses are FJ09, S1000R, S1000XR, and Motus.

That’s a lot of meticulous grunt work that I’m losing desire for.

So unlike all my other bikes, I won’t be upgrading the suspension on this one.

That’s because it came with Ohlins front and rear!

Thank you! My loan company also thanks you. But I could die tomorrow (look at Tom Petty), so what the hey.

Keep guessing.

Nobody’s got it, yet.
