Aloft

Air – like some Japanese watercolor from the Edo  Period 江戸時代 this airborne Triumph soars across the tinted page in a blurry motion. Touched by the glisten of a desert sun the lazily brushed lines offer the glimpse of the briefest of moments between the land and the sky. Superb artwork by HAMMeRED.

Leap Week

Midweek Madness – Hump-Day always needs a healthy dose of throttle as well as a whiff of confidence to launch over that Wednesday rise. This bug-eyed lime green Triumph Speed Triple is the perfect vehicle to head skyward and land somewhere in the vicinity of 5.30pm Friday…

Shoot!

Blow Up – another frame from yesterday’s photo-shoot. This time the photographer comes into focus. Like Michaelangelo Antonioni’s masterpiece from the sixties I cropped in closer to see if a murder had taken place…

Triple Power

Cubed – when Triumph emerged from the near fatal flatline in the nineties they used a modular engine design that could be shoehorned into different models. Good sturdy machines that still hold their own on the road. The Adventurous Tiger, rippled Speed Triple, and a speedy Sprint offered a British badged moto with doughty engineering.

Greaser Gal 

Taming Tigers – a cheery lass on her fifties Triumph enjoying the scene at some rockers reunion. All stylin’ in turnipped denims, James Dean shades, bouquet in curly hair, Bakelite bangles.

Pen & Ink – fine illustration of a vintage racing Triumph twin with a line very much like some etching plate drawing. By Martin Squires.
