SLIM SHADY. Tamarit’s ‘Sombra’ Triumph Thruxton Racer

Posted on February 14, 2018 by Andrew in Café Racer, Racer. No Comments

There’s a reason why Salvador Dali didn’t quit painting in this thirties to take up mime. Similarly, Jorge Lorenzo isn’t about to become a violinist and Hernando Cortez didn’t decide to throw it all in and make baskets a few days before he claimed the Americas.

On Any Sunday, The Great Escape and The Wild One. These are the highbrow motorcycling movies that we all name-drop as being one of the reasons we got into motorcycling in the first place.

When you’re a kid everything seems big, adults appear to be giants and a semi-trailer truck may as well be a Transformer. Even the childhood home feels like a castle until one day you return as an adult and realise it’s just a regular old three bedroom house. So too the bikes of our youth…
