i wasn't really early on the planning, but the organisation was strict on the fact that the bike needs to be clean and shiny. well that's not usually the case of mine, so we stopped by a carwash to clean the dirt from
Catalina. i haven't washed the bike since.

The Triumph is basically the same as for the Catalina GP, just changed tires, bar and add a front brake.
a quick test ride on the parking to check how it runs with the altitude....not that bad, for the moment down in Colorado Springs.
