The Triumph seems to have 'pegs' for a pillion, yet the saddle looks like a 'solo'.

The Daytona has a modular system for the pillion - soft seat, hard seat cowl, etc etc. Clip one off, clip the other on.

Forecast for tomorrow precludes my planned riverside walk (too much rain).

Wonderful! Small flight of RAAF fighters just flew over my place on their way to do the flyover for the memorial service at Kings Park. Noisy, fast and spectacular!

Morning peeps,looking at the sky here one would say it hasn't got a clue what it's going to do today, regularly tootled down to the Twisted Spire to do the banks there.

Lon More - the education authority is sending the kids home tomorrow instead of Friday and Orkney Ferries are warning of "delays & cancellations". Nothing more to do for me, all battened down. I may go down to the hotel for a pint tomorrow evening.
