In one of the odder deals I’ve been involved in, I traded the 2002 Daytona for some explosion-proof lights. In turn, I sold those not more than three minutes later to my friend Mark, who will be using them in his restoration shop’s remodeled paint booth this winter. An hour after that, I concluded negotiations on this 2006 Triumph Sprint ST with ABS. It has just shy of 15,000 miles and will be the perfect (?) mount for my upcoming road trip to Crater Lake with my pal Jack. I was a bit sorry to see the Daytona go, but this new machine will hopefully prove to be more practical and just as invigorating.
