GTL stands for Gross Tare Load, right?

Had to shift some old motorcycles yesterday, and the GTL came to the rescue.





That's a '60s Bonneville one one side, and a '40s Indian dirt bike on the other.

Sadly, not my bikes, I'm just storing them for a friend.

Did get some great looks on the ride home though.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full.
All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

The Triumph leaked enough oil all by itself...

Back in the '80's the joke was that the Brits didn't make computers because they hadn't figured out how to make them leak oil in the driveway.

You never change the oil in an old Triumph—you just keep refilling it...
