    Hello Goth Trumpet

    I'm blaming Yox for this: after our Eurothrash, I ended up buying a new Triumph Sprint GT and flip-flopped between colour choices, eventually going for the black (with a few extras):

    And then with 6 miles on the clock, I jettisoned the "Hoover" and fitted a Remus Hexacone silencer:

    Running it in now

    It has its own blog here:
    http://www.sprint-gt.com/

    And it can't just be called GT as that's my nickname for my girlfriend (Got Totty)

    I could probably hide dead bodies/kidnap victims in there! Even the panniers are big enough for a head each, er I mean helmet each.

    Nice one - that bike is such a bargain too. A chap at work has one and loves it.

    Utter bargain at 8,500 and negotiate from there: I added heated grips, gel seat, Pazzo levers, top box, backrest, pannier liner bags and a U lock and still had change from 9,000!

    It does feel quite like a grown-up's bike rather than the hooligan Blue Rex
