Nacelle Report – March 2021

As burn ups on our bikes are not allowed at the moment, we’ve been spending our time just tuning our machines in our oily greasy jeans!!!  In sheds across Berkshire, members have been working on their bikes and chatting about them at our Thursday night Zoom meetings and on our WhatsApp group. One member has been facing some challenges restoring his T160 and grappling with the three into four into two exhaust pipes which never seem to quite fit. Meanwhile another member has started on the list of problems to fix on his Bonnie which now includes having to put new gaiters on.

Replacing the pipes on at T160

Even though the non-essential shops are closed, it’s still possible to buy motorbikes so  another member has treated himself to a nearly new Tiger 900. He spent some time fitting a Top Box on, but now all he can do is look at it, as he’s not allowed to ride it at the moment.

New Tiger for when lockdown ends

Despite no rides being allowed at the moment, the WhatsApp group used to arrange them is still active with members talking about their new toys, current projects or general chat. We also have a Facebook group, website, YouTube channel and weekly Zoom meetings.

We’d like to build an online gallery of pictures of members bikes. So we are inviting all Branch members to send a photo of one of their Triumph bikes together with a sentence or two about it to scribe@berkshiretomcc.org.uk so we can put them online.

Keep on rolling!
