I've always thought the styling of the nacelle Triumphs was the motorcycle equivalent to the Jaguar XK-120. With that in mind this photo is a favorite of mine. If I felt compelled to emulate the dress of a vintage rider I'd much rather go this route rather than the Ace cafe stereotype. It's a lot more practical for the Pacific North West climate as well. I wonder what the trick is to keeping the tail of your trench coat out of the drive chain.
