My Dad rode this 1950 Triumph Thunderbird from NY to Cali and back in 1950 when he bought it. Not much of the road system in those days. Rear sprung hub had 1/2" of travel, front forks 3". Pops was a WWII vet, tough old bird.

don't know where you are from but get out to your local short track and maybe you can find a class that you might be interested in running.
you only live once..and those guys put their pants on same as you every morning.
Burn the shit holes to the ground, arrest the faculty for sedition, do it now. Won't happen of course but it would be a great place to start.
Pretty sure that nobody has made a full pull yet in the big boy class. Sure are putting on a tire rattling clinic though!
88 degrees and non stop sun...track is HOT, but the new starting line is awesome!
