My '70 Triumph TR-6 (7 or 8 years old when I had it) was pretty trouble-free.

I don't know exactly where you live. I might be a little closer. My I-40 exit/mile marker is 378 (the Mississippi River being 0).

You're about 50 miles closer. I don't live exactly in New Orleans.

Technically, it was my dad's car, but he bought if for me to drive. I think he paid like $700 for it. I learned to drive stick in that car.

Was it red? Please tell me it was red.

Green would be traditional but the red was gorgeous.

And a microfiber towel! Windex is inexpensive, so wet one towel down, then wipe dry with a clean towel.

I don't ever wipe mine down.

But I don't have a Trophy Titanium bike. Just a workhorse Titanium bike. Should I post about it somewhere??

I could use a step by step guide to how you donít wipe your bike down.

It's really quite complicated but I will try to work on a Cliff's Notes version.

Thank you.

You're still in Tennessee, though.
