American Triton

Yankee cafay. Too strong a brew for British taste?

The road meanders through mile after mile of lush green countryside.

The speed limit sign is only a suggestion on this nigh on bend-perfect biking road. For this is where the handling capability and mid-range power of a well-sorted classic bike can be thoroughly explored and enjoyed.

Not a car, camera or copper in sight. Mile after mile.

Village after village. Is this a ride out in the English countryside of the 1930s before the leafy highways and byways became loved too much by the masses?
