    Much as I hate to admit it john, my understanding is that Triumph (meriden) copied the xs 650 for this model (T140D Special)

    I remember BSH Magazine used to do a "Landmarks" piece each year. As it says on the tin, they would list a number of well known landmarks throughout UK and Eire and you would visit as many as possible taking a pic with your bike at each one. I never completed it, but did make a few. Never got a landmark pic published, but did get this one in there (with a suitably smutty comment about over excitement 😁 ) So maybe mixing 2 wheels and Bipps ideas, doing the 3k miles with interesting places and not just going to work

    I loved mine. As Blackwell says a bit of a tank and as a relative short arse, I loved that. Took me all over Britain and Ireland on a number of times and never let me down. The carb rubbers are expensive nowadays and as with any four, a bugger to fit. Did I mention that I loved mine. It was everything my xs250 wasn't.

    I done mine in December 81 on the same format as Meats. It was a mad rush for a test at the 125 laws was coming in June 82 so we were all rushing to get through it. I actually sat it on my mates xs250 us custom because my own xs was off the road. Surprise surprise. He had failed his on 23 December so a fair bit of ribbing when I passed on his bike
