Default Bought myself a new bike today

i've always wanted an old British twin. My lovely wife finally gave me the go ahead last week. Drove over 700 miles round trip today to pick up this beauty.

She's a 1968 BSA A65 Lightning.

The Warrior just got her self and older sister.

She's a beaut!

Reminds me of the old Norton Daytona I've been a hankering for.

Wow. Nice bike. I hope you enjoy it, whether it be riding it on back country roads, BS'ing at an ice cream stand, or staring at it in your garage.
