I guess I should have taken a picture.

Amber and I are Sunday-breakfast-and-the-Times-ing at JP's Java. The place looks like maybe it was formerly a diner and we are eating in a glassed in section neat a main drag (Speedway maybe?). Outside the window from where I am sitting is a new Triumph Bonneville T100. It is a little bit of a modern classic. There are no fairings covering the guts of it, the little engine is exposed within the black frame under a white and black gas tank. If it weren't so cleam it might be an antique, not only out of style, but that is has carburators leading into the motor case that doesn't fill up too much of the frame. The frame and steering mechanism are not crude, but still harken back to the time in which people were hand-making these things and figuring out what is the best way to put it all together. I think the oil-cooler is probably a modern touch that would be a hot-rod option on a standard unit.
